Takeri gives a tempting idea of the new generation Mazda-6.

14 February 2012: Following its debut at the Tokyo motor show last December, the new Mazda Takeri concept car will be presented to the European public next month at the 82nd Geneva Motor Sow (8-18 March), with Mazda’s i-ELOOP regenerative braking technology, the new Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV and the range of Mazda’s SKYACTIV as well as other new technologies and models.

 Takeri

As it represents a mid-sized sedan concept, the Mazda Takeri (opposite pictures) gives a clear idea, a rather tempting one, of an elegant new generation Mazda-6 to expect from next year.

In its latest expression of Mazda's new “KODO – Soul of Motion” design theme, the Takeri concept purpose is to indicate the future direction of Mazda’s next-generation CD sedan, having inherited from the previous Mazda Shinari concept, the four-door sports coupe concept seen last year in Geneva.

Under the skin, the Takeri features Mazda’s new SKYACTIV-D diesel engine with i-stop idle-stop system and six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission.

The Takeri is also the first Mazda vehicle to be equipped with i-ELOOP (Intelligent Energy Loop), the company’s first regenerative braking system which converts kinetic energy to electricity (opposite picture) during deceleration and stores it in an electric double layer capacitor.

The Japanese auto maker says that this power is used to run the vehicle’s electric components, reducing the engine load and increasing fuel economy by up to 10%, without sacrificing neither performance nor comfort (opposite drawing).

On the other hand, the new CX-5 is the first production model incorporating Mazda’s KODO design theme, and the first built with the full SKYACTIV range of technologies for the engines, transmissions, body and chassis.

Besides the Takeri concept and the new CX-5 crossover (due in the European markets this spring), Mazda’s display at the 2012 Geneva International Motor Show will showcase the SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine, SKYACTIV-G direct-injection petrol engine, SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission, SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission, the i-ELOOP regenerative braking system and the CX-5 “X-ray” display, in addition to Mazda's Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda5, Mazda6, Mazda MX-5 models... >>>
