Mazda will premiere the Mazda Takeri next-generation midsize sedan concept car at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show in December
The Mazda Takeri features the full array of SkyActive Technology, including the efficient and powerful new SkyActiv-D clean diesel engine. The combination of SkyActive Technology and electric devices — such as Mazda‘s idling stop system, i-stop, and a new regenerative braking system.
The appearance of Mazda's first regenerative braking system is notable because this car isn't a hybrid — it runs on a diesel engine. Like conventional hybrid systems, kinetic energy is captured and stored during braking, but in this case, rather than being fed back to an electric motor, the energy is stored in a capacitor and used to power the vehicle's electric equipment. This reduces engine load and results in excellent fuel economy according to Mazda.
The Mazda Takeri exploits Mazda‘s new design language, 'KODO – Soul of Motion‘, to its sedan styling, and the Takeri concept you see here is runmoured to be the future of the Mazda6.
