|Mazda will be showcasing the SKY Concept at the 2010 Beijing International Motor Show from 23 April 2 May 2010. Previously, the SKY Concept has premiered at the Tokyo International Motorshow, and for the Beijing Motor Show, SKY-G will be featured as a premiere in China along with a host of Mazda line-ups.|
The ‘SKY-G’ direct injection gasoline engine, the ‘SKY-D’ clean diesel engine and the ‘SKY-Drive’ highly-efficient automatic transmission are all-new powertrains that form the base of Mazda’s strategy to improve average fleet-wide fuel economy 30% by 2015 compared to 2008 levels.
Additionally, it embodies Mazda’s desire to ensure an “everlasting blue sky” under which drivers will always be able to enjoy the fun-to-drive pleasure afforded by owning a Mazda.
Also featured on the Mazda stand will be the Mazda8 minivan (known in Japan as the Mazda MPV). The Mazda8 offers the best of all worlds: refined styling, outstanding driving performance and a premium, functional and comfortable cabin.
Mazda’s stand at the Beijing show will also feature the Mazda Kiyora concept car (above). Kiyora comes with a number of next-generation eco-friendly technologies, such as the SKY-G engine, and achieves outstanding fuel economy.
Mazda will display a total of 16 vehicles spanning nine model lines, including; the Mazda6 (Mazda Atenza) five-door hatchback, the Mazda2 (Mazda Demio) and Mazda3 (Mazda Axela).
