Mazda introducing Mazda6 with 2.5L SKYACTIV-G with SCBS and i-ELOOP capacitor-based regen system at LA Auto Show; timing on and application for diesel

26 November 2012

Among its several North American vehicle debuts at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, Mazda will introduce the 2014 Mazda6 mid-size sedan featuring a new SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter gasoline engine as well as new-to-market technologies in the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system (an automated safety feature designed to mitigate front-end collisions at low speeds), and i-ELOOP, a capacitor-based brake energy regeneration system. (Earlier post.)

Mazda will also announce the official timing and vehicle application for the US-destined SKYACTIV-D 2.2-liter diesel engine at the show.

Earlier this year, Mazda introduced a Russian-specification Mazda6 equipped with a direct-injection SKYACTIV-G 2.0 gasoline engine and six-speed SKYACTIV–DRIVE automatic transmission. (Earlier post.)

Taking nearly identical design cues from the TAKERI Concept, the 2014 Mazda6 follows the CX-5 to become the second production vehicle to feature the full breadth of the KODO “Soul of Motion” design language and also fully incorporate SKYACTIV Technology.

The 2014 CX-5 also will receive the SCBS system, which will be available as part of an upgraded Technology Package on GT models. At this time, the CX-5 will not be equipped with i-ELOOP.

Mazda Motorsports will also unveil an all-new competition race car which will make its motorsports debut at the 2013 Rolex 24 at Daytona. The vehicle will be equipped with a turbocharged SKYACTIV-D 2.2L, making it the first diesel-powered competitor in the 51-year history of the 24-hour race. Upon build completion, the diesel racing engine remains 63% OEM stock. Taking place in January, Mazda will be seeking its 24th motorsports class win during the premier motorsports endurance race in the United States.

Not bad..

Those diesel powered units will be popular in EU?
