Mazda TAKERI announced for debut at the next Tokyo Motor Show on 30 November.

The TAKERI previews the next mid-size sedan by Mazda and if you are thinking it looks like the sedan version of the Minagi concept — which resulted in the CX-5 crossover — that’s because this too is based on the KODO design philosophy.

The new design language has let go of the smiley face we still get with the Mazda3, but it still relies on a big front grille as its main characteristic. The TAKERI will also showcase the latest SKYACTIV Technologies, including Mazda’s first regenerative braking system.It converts kinetic energy to electricity during deceleration, stores it in capacitors and then uses it to power the vehicle’s electrical equipment – reducing load on the engine and saving fuel.

The concept car also benefits from the new SKYACTIV-D diesel engine, Mazda i-stop, new lightweight structure, aerodynamic and chassis technologies, to be as green as possible.

Mazda’s theme for the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show is “Environmental Technology, Pushing the Boundaries of the Emotion of Motion.  As long as there are people who love to drive, Mazda will continue to evolve the emotion of motion in harmony with environmental and safety performance.”
