Mazda has recently announced to introduce a natural gas-powered version of the new Mazda3 generation next month, during the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.
The Japanese based automaker Mazda will soon introduce a natural gas-powered version of the 2014 Mazda3, but before the model will get the green lights for production, it will make its public debut at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, in November. This should be a good alternative for customers who are looking for a petrol powered vehicle with low fuel consumption as the natural gas-powered Mazda3 will also be able to run on petrol too.
The 2014 Mazda3 in question will actually be a concept car which will use the current 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol engine, but it’s unknown for the moment whether or not this will maintain the 121 kW and 210 Nm of torque figures, as these are expected to drop. The average fuel consumption in the natural gas-powered Mazda3 is believed to stand at just 4.7 liters of fuel burned every 100 km while the CO2 emissions will drop to 108 g/km. More details on the model are limited for the moment and will be announced in Tokyo, next month.
