With a planned debut for the Tokyo Auto Show, Mazda has released a selection of images of its new Takeri concept car, previewing the next-generation Mazda6 family sedan.
Using the brand’s new Kodo design language, the car stays true to the Shinari concept and shares styling similarities with the upcoming CX-5 compact crossover.
Riding on an all-new SkyActiv platform and using one of Mazda’s new Skyactiv-D diesel engines the Takeri concept is also the first Mazda to feature a regenerative braking system, using energy stored under braking to power onboard electrical components and thereby reduce the load on the engine.
Mazda promises significantly improved fuel economy, while staying true to the brand’s mandate to deliver cars that are enjoyable to drive.
Photos of the interior reveal a stunning cabin and a BMW i-Drive-style controller.
Look for complete details when the car debuts at the Tokyo Auto Show on November 30th.
