Mazda readies big introduction for Moscow

The  all-new 2014 Mazda6 will make its global debut during press preview days at  next month's Moscow International Automobile Salon.  The redesigned vehicle will be the second Mazda to be fully incorporated with the company's SkyActiv Technogy, which is the  proprietary name engineering focus on developing fuel-efficient, performance-oriented vehicles, featuring  lightweight and redesigned engine, transmission, chassis and body structures. 

On display in Moscow will be a Russian-specification sedan featuring a SkyActiveG  2 -liter gasoline engine matched  with a SkyActiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission.  The vehicle also will feature "i-ELOOP," the world's first capacitor-based regenerative braking system.  In real-world driving conditions, which involve frequent acceleration and braking, i-ELOOP, a name derived from "Intelligent Energy Loop," will improve fuel economy by up to 10 percent, Mazda officials said.
