Η Mazda ανακοίνωσε ότι στην έκθεση του Τόκιο τον Δεκέμβριο θα παρουσιάσει το Takeri Concept, το πρωτότυπο πάνω στο οποίο θα βασιστεί ο αντικαταστάτης του Mazda 6. Το πρωτότυπο διαθέτει την σχεδιαστική γραμμή “Kodo” που στα Ιαπωνικά σημαίνει ψυχή της κίνησης και παρουσιάστηκε αρχικά στο πρωτότυπο Shinari. Η Kodo δημιουργήθηκε ώστε να ενώσει 3 σχεδιαστικά κέντρα της Mazda, της Ιαπωνίας, της Γερμανίας και της Αμερικής. Επίσης το Τakeri διαθέτει την τεχνολογία SKYACTIV της Mazda που περιλαμβάνει σύστημα ανάκτησης ενέργειας κατά το φρενάρισμα, που σε συνδυασμό με τον πετρελαιοκινητήρα SKYACTIV-D, Mazda i-stop, το ελαφρύ και τεχνολογικά προηγμένο σασί και τη εξελιγμένη αεροδυναμική κάνουν το πρωτότυπο να έχει μικρές εκπομπές CO2 και χαμηλή κατανάλωση.
Παρόν στην έκθεση του Τόκιο θα είναι και το CX-5 το οποίο θα είναι διαθέσιμο και στην Ιαπωνία με τον SKYACTIV-D 2.2-λίτρων turbodiesel. Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες μπορείς να βρεις στο δελτίο τύπου που ακολουθεί.
Mazda TAKERI to premiere at 2011 Tokyo Motor Show
Hiroshima, Japan, 25 October 2011. Mazda Motor Corporation will showcase the global premiere of the Mazda TAKERI concept car, a next-generation midsized sedan, at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show. Also on stage making its Japan debut will be the new CX-5 crossover SUV – equipped with the full array of Mazda’s breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY – along with new technologies and production models.
Mazda’s theme for the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show is “Environmental Technology, Pushing the Boundaries of the Emotion of Motion. As long as there are people who love to drive, Mazda will continue to evolve the emotion of motion in harmony with environmental and safety performance.”
The TAKERI concept exploits Mazda’s new design language, KODO – Soul of Motion, to bring a new level of strength and allure to sedan styling. Under this appealing exterior is benchmark SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY like Mazda’s first regenerative braking system that converts kinetic energy to electricity during deceleration, stores it in capacitors and then uses it to power the vehicle’s electric equipment, thereby reducing load on the engine and saving fuel. This – combined with the new SKYACTIV-D diesel engine, Mazda i-stop, new lightweight, aerodynamic and chassis technologies – enable the Mazda TAKERI to achieve excellent fuel economy with vigorous performance and a comfortable ride.

– Mazda’s next-generation midsize sedan concept to debut alongside new Mazda CX-5 SUV with full array of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY –
HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation will showcase the global premiere of the Mazda TAKERI next-generation midsize sedan concept car at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show. Mazda will also hold the Japan debut of the new CX-5 crossover SUV equipped with the full array of Mazda’s breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY*1 as well as other new technologies and production models.
Mazda’s theme for the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show is “Environmental Technology, Pushing the Boundaries of the Emotion of Motion.” Mazda has previously announced its plan to thoroughly enhance environmental and dynamic performance under the Sustainable Zoom-Zoom long-term vision for technology development. The results of this plan began to appear on the market earlier in 2011. The Mazda Demio (known overseas as the Mazda2) launched in Japan in June, and the Mazda Axela (Mazda3) began its rollout to global markets in September.*2
The Mazda TAKERI exploits Mazda’s new design language, ‘KODO – Soul of Motion,’ to bring a new level of strength and allure to sedan styling. The TAKERI features the full array of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, including the efficient and powerful new SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine, to deliver vigorous performance and a comfortable ride desired in a sedan. The combination of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and electric devices – such as Mazda’s idling stop system, i-stop, and a new regenerative braking system – enable the Mazda TAKERI to achieve excellent fuel economy.
The 2011 Tokyo Motor Show will run from December 3 through 11, 2011, at the Tokyo Big Sight (Tokyo International Exhibition Center). The press days will be November 30 and December 1. Mazda will hold its press conference at 8:30 a.m. (JST) on November 30.
The new CX-5 is the first production vehicle with Mazda’s new design language KODO – Soul of Motion paired to SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY engines, transmission, body and chassis. With its light weight, aerodynamic form, very frugal and fun diesel and petrol engines, Mazda i-stop and fuel-saving transmissions; the all-new CX-5 delivers predictable and responsive handling and a high-quality and responsive ride matched to outstanding environmental and safety performance.

Mazda to Introduce Next-Generation Clean Diesel Vehicles in Japan
– First model to be new Mazda CX-5 crossover SUV –
HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation will progressively introduce clean diesel vehicles to the Japanese market, beginning with the new Mazda CX-5 crossover SUV in spring 2012. The vehicles will be powered by Mazda’s next-generation 2.2-liter clean diesel engine. The breakthrough ‘SKYACTIV-D 2.2’ is the world’s first passenger vehicle diesel engine to pass Japan’s Post New Long-Term Emissions Regulations without the need for expensive nitrogen oxide (NOx) aftertreatment technology. The CX-5 will be the first passenger vehicle in Japan to combine a clean diesel engine with an idling stop system. It will deliver maximum torque of 420Nm, more than some 4.0-liter V6 gasoline engine vehicles, and the best fuel economy of any SUV on the Japanese market at 18.6km/L (JC08 mode test cycle; front wheel drive, automatic transmission models).
Although popular in Europe, current clean diesel vehicles have struggled to gain traction in Japan because they require expensive NOx aftertreatment technology to meet the exhaust gas regulations. Through technological innovation, Mazda has achieved clean combustion of diesel fuel and avoided the need for NOx aftertreatment. Customers in Japan will be able to enjoy the price advantage of diesel over gasoline, approximately twice as much torque as similar sized gasoline engine vehicles, and 30 percent better fuel economy. With these eco-friendly and performance advantages, Mazda expects that its clean diesel vehicles will become a core part of its product lineup in Japan.
Mazda has also redeveloped its unique idling stop system, i-stop, for use with the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 engine. Unlike other diesel engine stop-start systems that require two engine cycles to restart combustion, i-stop restarts in a single cycle by careful positioning of the pistons as the engine stops. At less than 0.4 seconds, i-stop achieves the world’s fastest diesel engine restart time. The result is a smooth restart that is barely noticeable, as well as a significant improvement in fuel economy.
By introducing its clean diesel SKYACTIV-D engine to Japan, Mazda hopes to begin a new era of diesel power, add a fresh, fun-to-drive option to Japan’s eco-car market, and contribute to reducing CO2 emissions and more efficient use of energy resources in Japan.
