Incorporating Mazda's SKYACTIV technology and the Kodo-soul of motion design theme

Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the world premiere of the all-new Mazda6 sedan at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show.

The new Mazda6 is the second of Mazda's new generation of products which incorporate both the full range of SKYACTIV technologies and the new Kodo-soul of motion design language. It will also be the first model equipped with Mazda's brake energy regeneration system, i-ELOOP, a short name for intelligent energy loop.


The introduction of i-ELOOP marks stage 2 of Mazda's Building Block Strategy. The strategy calls for thorough improvements in base automotive technologies before the step-by-step introduction of electric devices to improve fuel economy and reduce carbon emissions.

The model to be exhibited at the Moscow Motor Show is a Russian specification sedan equipped with a direct-injection SKYACTIV-G 2.0 gasoline engine and six-speed SKYACTIV–DRIVE automatic transmission.


Along with the Mazda6, the Mazda Shinari will also be displayed. Mazda will also exhibit the technology they incorporate into their newer vehicles like the SKYACTIV engine and the brake energy regeneration system called 'i-ELOOP'.

The 2012 Moscow Motor Show begins August 29 and runs through to September 9, 2012.
