Mazda Takeri Concept New Photos Released

Mazda Takeri Concept New Photos Released

The Mazda Takeri concept was first unveiled at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show and premiered Mazda’s “KODO-soul of motion” design language.

While the Takeri is only a concept, it sheds light on Mazda’s future lineup and will likely be the next Mazda 6. The Takeri is also the first Mazda to have the new i-ELOOP regenerative braking system. In essence the i-ELOOP system works like all other regenerative braking systems, except that it is destined to be outfitted in traditional gasoline cars. The electricity produced by the system will be used to run the cars electrical components, reducing strain on the engine which thus increases fuel efficiency.

Mazda will debut the Takeri concept in Europe at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show and has released new photos of the concept before the debut.

Let us know if you think Mazda’s new styling is a hit or a miss in the comments section below.

    I love the looks of this concept car. It seems that it has changed a little from the first time I saw it on your website in December. I thought it looked better in December- more sportier.
    The looks of it today- for a 4 door I think it looks very sharp and classy! I am wondering if they will be available in a 5-speed. I have a 1998 Mazda 626 ES which I am still driving. 126,000 miles. It has been a wonderful and low maintenance vehicle. Very fuel efficient and reliable. The engine is strong as ever.
    I will hate to part with it one day… I hope to afford a new Takeri when they are available. Very inspirational! Beautiful work on all new concept cars. I like them all. I think Mazda will do very well when the new lines are out. Thanks for asking for my comment. I love MAZDA!

    Is Takeri Japanese for catfish? Earlier photos showed a much prettier car.
