New Mazda6 technology details

 

Mazda will be including some new technologies into their new Mazda6 range, respectively an innovative capacitor-based brake energy regeneration system called i-ELOOP.

The new technology will come as a standard feature on the new Mazda6 range of vehicles and these will be the very first vehicles in the world to use a capacitor-based brake energy regeneration system in order to power non-crucial auxiliary electric systems in the car like the audio system, the communications system and the climate control.

Now you may think you’ve heard of regenerative brake systems being used to power ancillary systems before, however the i-ELOOP is different from the standard technology that is being used by other manufacturers. The standard model implies the use of a battery- and alternator-powered system, while the i-ELOOP will be using capacitors to store the energy – the advantage to using capacitors is that this technology works faster than the standard.

The third-generation Mazda6 vehicles will actually be unveiled at the Sydney Motor Show in October, and the official launch will come sometime after that.

Some other information that we can confirm about the new Mazda6 engines is that they will feature the 2.5-litre SkyActiv-G petrol engine, capable of producing 138kW and 250Nm, meaning that it will give ten percent more power and eleven percent more torque than the previous Mazda6 petrol options.
