Mazda have announced plans to produce a new range of fuel efficient, dynamic performance power plants they call SKY concept. According to Mazda’s press release the SKY-G (gasoline) and SKY-D (diesel) engines will give significant improvements in fuel economy along with dynamic performance.
With the SKY-D expectations of 43 mpg on a motorway run, it would knock the Ford Fusion Hybrid off its current place as class leader in fuel economy. Meanwhile the SKY-G when mated to the new SKY-Drive six-speed auto-transmission will give 15 percent better fuel economy than the current petrol engines in use.
Mazda’s plan is to increase its fuel economy by 30 percent by 2015 and be able to offer affordable eco-friendly vehicles to its customers. With Mazda upping its game in the fuel economy market what will the other main players come up with? Follow the link to see Mazda’s full press release.
