23 May 2012 - While the sedan concept itself is nothing new (first unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show), the drivetrain information is hugely important. Aside from being the third concept car to feature Kodo (Soul of Motion) design style, it will be the second car to fully embrace SkyActiv technology. Currently, Mazda has considered the plan. According to the plan, the Mazda6 will be launched in 2013 and the coupe version was launched in 2014. In addition, for the new sedan although no complete specification data, the Japanese manufacturer will equip with the new Mazda 6.
Mazda6 exterior design is now more daring when compared with the previous generation. Comes with a new grille design and a leaner, more technical headlights and body lines more sharply.Regarding the kitchen runway, Mazda6 will be equipped with the latest Active Sky 2.2-liter turbodiesel which is claimed to spewing power of 173 hp and torque of 310 lb lf. Although it has great power, but Mazda Mazda6 is claimed to still have enough fuel-efficient, while the emission CO2nya produces only 104 g / km.
Has a length of 4850 mm, 4-door sedan is equipped with a new 2.0-liter diesel SKYACTIV-D with a 6 speed automatic transmission. The Takeri is also equipped with Mazda i-stop idling stop system and regenerative braking system is unique and is called 'i-ELOOP' (Intelligent Energy Loop). I-ELOOP is the first in the world energy system that uses the kinetic energy recovery system of a capacitor from 25V to 12V alternator, unlike the traditional battery.
Mazda claims the solution to be introduced gradually to all the models are not equipped with an electric motor in 2012, has many advantages over the combination of a conventional electric motor-battery.Research conducted by Mazda engineers showed that the average deceleration cycle only lasts about 10 seconds.Therefore, the ability of the capacitor to recharge more quickly than batteries, and profitable.
In addition, while full-capacitor charging takes about one minute, in urban driving conditions, sometimes not fully replenished when exhausted. In this case, the capacitor has advantages other than batteries, and power do not decrease even if used within a period of time.
Mazda says, is like a battery-based systems, i-ELOOP not use the internal combustion engine to charge the capacitor, which will lead to increased fuel consumption. According to Mazda, the combination of all the technology in new diesel engines offer up to 20 percent reduction in fuel consumption than the conventional model of the same size and power cruising can reach 1,500 km.
