SKYACTIV means redefining everything, every major part of a car, from the engine to chassis and from the body to transmissions. Learn what made us search for better performance and efficiency, how we improved processes and how we developed the ground-breaking solution that is SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY (Play Video).
i-ELOOP: World's first brake energy regeneration system that stores energy in a capacitor instead of a battery
Body Chassis: How to deliver refined, linear handling, world-class safety and efficient lightweight design
Engines: Discover new benchmarks of performance with highly efficient diesel and gasoline engines
Transmissions: Excellent new-generation automatic or manual transmissions transfer more power to the wheels
Diesel: The world's lowest compression ratio of 14:1 for mass produced engines plus a variable twin-turbo charger
The perfect companion to i-ELOOP is i-STOP. Conventional idling stop systems restart a vehicle's engine with an electric motor exactly the same way the engine is usually started.
Using direct fuel injection techniques and optimized piston positioning, Mazda's unique ''i-STOP'' allows drivers to re-start almost instantly while leading to a significant improvement in fuel economy.
