The Japanese based automaker Mazda has recently announced that the future generation of the Mazda6 sedan will be very similar to the Takeri Concept.
According to the car manufacturer, the future generation of the Mazda6 will be similar to the Takeri Concept of up to 80 percent and the model will also be equipped with the new SkyActiv engines and transmissions. In a recent interview with Autocar Magazine, the Mazda Europe head of design, Peter Birtwhistle, is talking about the future Mazda6 and the interpretation of the Kodo design language on the model, as well as on the new SkyActiv technologies which are also promising to reduce CO2 emissions and improve fuel efficiency by up to 30 percent.
As a reminder, the Mazda Takeri Concept has been officially presented to the public at the 42nd edition of the Tokyo Motor Show in December 2011, and after making its European debut too, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the model is close to “giving birth” to the new Mazda6. When describing the Mazda Takeri Concept, words like the SkyActive technology or regenerative braking system have been used quite a lot, but rather than going through all that again, we’d better focus on the future generation of the Mazda6, which should hit the market pretty soon.
