Mazda Release Official Snaps of Takeri Concept Ahead of Geneva Unveiling

Concepts

The Takeri Concept, a preview of the next-gen Mazda6, will make its European debut in Geneva.

Mazda plans to take the Geneva Motor Show by storm and the Takeri Concept will be a major weapon in their arsenal of new cars and technology, which includes its SKYACTIV range of gasoline and diesel engines and their i-ELOOP (Intelligent Energy Loop) regenerative braking technology. First revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show, Mazda will introduce the Takeri Concept to Europe at Geneva next month and accompanying this announcement is a fresh batch of photos.

What is essentially a preview of the next-gen Mazda6, the Takeri Concept will be joined by the new CX-5 compact crossover SUV, with which it shares the same design language and the MX-5 Spring 2012 Special Edition, which is reserved for European markets. A 2.2-liter SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine sits under the hood with an i-stop stop/start system and mated to a six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission. Combined with Mazda's i-ELOOP regenerative braking system, the Takeri concept is capable of travelling around 932 miles between fill ups.

The system works by storing the kinetic energy produced when braking in a capacitor that in turn feeds the car's electronics. Mazda claims it alone can decrease fuel consumption by 10%. The next-generation Mazda6 will reportedly be offered as a sedan, hatchback, wagon and coupe, with the first three arriving in 2013 and the coupe following a year later.
