Official renderings have been released from Mazda showing their new Takeri Concept, set for debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.
Mazda has been bragging about their new 'Kodo-Soul of Motion' design language for quite some time. First seen on the Japanese company's Shinari and Minagi concept cars, the new Mazda6 sedan, or Takeri Concept, features the new lines predominately throughout the car's design. In addition to promising the Kodo styling on future models, Mazda will also make frequent its use of the ultra-efficient SKYACTIV technology.
The Takeri Concept boasts a SKYACTIV-D (clean diesel) engine, along with an ultra-high tensile steel chassis, regenerative brakes, standard stop-start and aerodynamic pieces. The fuel-efficient model's lightweight 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine can put out 173hp and 310lb-ft of torque. In addition to being more efficient and cleaner than its predecessors, the new diesel motor features the lowest compression ratio ever for a Mazda-produced diesel motor. It will be mated to a new torque convertor automatic transmission. The new Mazda6 Takeri Concept will make its world premiere at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show in December.
