Designed to replace the Mazda 6 by 2013, it features a new i-ELOOP (Intelligent Energy Loop) regenerative braking system, as well as Mazda’s future design language ‘Kodo’, which means ‘Soul of Motion’.
Also on show at the Mazda stand will be the new Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV and the MX-5 Special Edition, which will go on sale as the Venture Edition’ in the UK.
The current Mazda range will put in an appearance, too, as well as a few of Mazda’s technological innovations, including a SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine, SKYACTIV-G direct-injection petrol engine, SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission and SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission.
Takashi Yamanouchi, Mazda’s CEO, said: “the Mazda Takeri sits at the heart of Mazda’s new beginnings, pointing the way for a new-generation mid-sized saloon which embraces strong design, driving pleasure and impressive environmental performance.”
‘Kodo’ design, seen on the Takeri as well as the Shinari on which it’s based, replaces the ‘Naga’ design language used on past Mazdas.
