The new BMW i3s provides an even sportier interpretation of silent mobility with zero local emissions and features a high-performance 135 kW/184 hp electric motor that generates peak torque of 270 Nm (199 lb-ft). Its updated drive system includes modified motor control and specific taper roller bearings, which have been utilised to further optimise power delivery and the performance curve at higher rpm. At the limits of the motor speed range, the power and torque of the further developed drive system represent an improvement of up to 40% for the BMW i3. What’s more, the new BMW i3s boasts sports suspension with specially developed springs, dampers and anti-roll bars. Drivers can also select SPORT mode using the Driving Experience Control switch. This initiates more direct accelerator response and tighter steering characteristics to further accentuate the car’s sporting edge.

Short for "Intelligent Energy Loop", Mazda fuel-saving i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system was the world first such passenger car technology to utilise a capacitor to store electricity recovered during braking. Mazda focused on the recurring deceleration and acceleration cycle of everyday driving conditions. Determining that a typical deceleration phase lasts only about 10 seconds, the company adopted an electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC) to quickly capture and temporarily store the recovered electricity rather than a dedicated lead-acid starter battery or lithium-ion unit.

Standard equipment on the all new Mazdas including the 2017 Mazda 6, it uses combustion energy for the restart. In addition to saving fuel, this enables some of the fastest restarts in the industry: 0.35 seconds for SKYACTIV-G petrol engines and only 0.40 seconds on SKYACTIV-D diesels. i-stop uses a refined control module to switch off the engine in the ignition/expansion stroke (petrol) or compression stroke (diesel), the optimum cycles for restarting. In fact, i-stop actually waits for the moment the cylinders are in the ideal restart position. And it only takes a spilt second.
Eleanor Norton Mazda, 2017-10-28 10:02:25. The Mazda Kai Concept compact hatchback heralds a new generation of Mazda cars. Featuring the next-generation SKYACTIV-X gasoline engine, SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture and a more mature expression of the KODO design language, the model embodies the technology, engineering and design concepts that will define the next generation of Mazda cars. Refinements in all areas of dynamic performance have produced a dramatically quieter, more comfortable ride and an enhanced performance feel. The Mazda Kai Concept features muscular, solid proportions and its form is brought to life by a delicate flow of reflections over the body sides. Developers of the all-new Mazda CX-5 aimed to take the emotional appeal and powerful vitality the carmaker has pursued with its KODO - Soul of Motion designs to a yet higher level by creating a fresh expression of beauty that appeals to mature sensibilities. Aiming for a unique design only Mazda could produce, the development team started with a simple yet honed form free of non-essential elements, as is common in traditional Japanese crafts, choosing "refined toughness" as the design keyword.
Eve Fitzgerald Mazda, 2017-10-28 10:02:13. The all-new Mazda CX-5 comes with rigid steering mounts that heighten the linearity and steering stiffness of its column type electric power steering system. The front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension system features larger diameter front damper pistons and liquid-filled bushings for the front suspension. They suppress the floating sensation experienced by the driver as well as unpleasant vibrations in the cabin when the vehicle is subjected to roll. The braking system with front ventilated and rear solid discs now gets Mazda auto-hold function, which keeps the car stopped even after the driver lifts his or her foot off the brake pedal.

Smart Brake Support (SBS) also widens its speed range for automatic braking, in this case from 15-145km/h to 15-160km/h, thanks to the forward sensing camera, which supplements the existing 77GHz microwave radar. SBS monitors preceding vehicles, first sounding an audible warning should it detect a hazardously closing gap and pre-filling the brakes, applying them should the driver fail to respond. Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) also utilises the new camera to identify speed limit and "no entry" signs, immediately notifying the driver via the Active Driving Display. It warns drivers with visual and audible alerts should they exceed the limit.
Libby Wade Mazda, 2017-10-28 10:10:00. The 2017 Mazda 6s comprehensive range of active and pre-crash safety systems includes Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM). Its 24GHz radar keeps track of vehicles approaching from behind (as close as 2m) and in adjacent lanes (up to 8m to the side and 50m behind) at 30km/h and up, visually and audibly altering drivers should they signal a lane change. BSM includes Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), which uses BSM sensors and signals when the car is reversing. Lane-keep Assist System (LAS) monitors the road markings via the forward sensing camera at 60km/h and up, warning the driver of unintentional lane changes (e.g. without using the turn signal) by vibrating the steering wheel. LAS even provides steering torque assistance to return the vehicle to the centre of its lane. Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH), which debuted on the 2015 Mazda 6, combines glare-free LED high beams and wide-range low beams with an auto-levelling function. Each headlamp has four LED blocks that can be shut off individually to avoid impairing other motorists vision. The low beams greatly broaden coverage and with it visibility at places like intersections.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, 2017-10-28 10:02:45. The impression is of a space that reaches ahead as the car navigates the road. The interior of the Mazda Vision Coupe, just like its exterior, has a satisfyingly deep and three-dimensional feel; its lines run smoothly from front to back, exuding a sense of speed. Structural forms such as the center console, door trim and instrument panel intersect with one another without touching, creating a sense of ma inside the car. The spaces that are created encourage the flow of air throughout the car, and the three-dimensional framework makes occupants feel safely ensconced without any sense of confinement. In recent times, car interiors have come to be dominated by large displays. Although considerable amounts of information need to be supplied to the person operating the car, these screens can easily become a barrier that blocks the driver view. This model features a see-through screen developed by Mazda; it functions as a display only at those times when it is required, creating an interior space with perfect visibility for the driver needs.
