Mazda3 powertrain prepares for Tokyo reveal

With the Tokyo Motor Show rapidly approaching, Mazda has revealed that this will be the location to unveil its all new powertrain, set to be made available in the Mazda3.

Known as the SKYACTIV-CNG Concept, the technology runs on compressed natural gas - hence the (CNG) tag.

The Mazda3 is the staple model from the manufacturer, making up for around 30 per cent of the sales volume for the Japanese manufacturer. This is potentially why the engine concept was demonstrated in the vehicle, showing how transferable and usable it is for everyday models.

Furthermore, the technology also addresses the increased popularity and demand for fuel efficient models. The SKYACTIV-CNG Concept adopts a dual fuel system, which can run on both conventional gasoline and CNG.

Engines with the compression technology will reduce emissions by around 20 per cent, when compared to other similar engines.

Mazda will also be showcasing the Mazda Atenza (Mazda6) ASV-5 at the motor show. The car features impressive futuristic safety systems, including an in-car autonomous sensor to communicate with streetcars, which helps to minimise collisions and support smooth traffic flow.
