Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology is that rarest of products: a product where the execution of an idea actually surpasses the brilliance of the original idea. SKYACTIV technology encompasses a wide range of adjustments to Mazda vehicles, all of which are designed to improve the environmental impact and safety record of these vehicles without sacrificing the “zoom-zoom” power that’s always made Mazda famous.
Customers have responded in extremely positive ways to SKYACTIV technologies, as more than 1 million vehicles equipped with these technologies have now been produced as of March 2014. Three current Mazdas feature the whole SKYACTIV suite, the Mazda CX-5, Mazda6, and Mazda3. Together, 1,040,000 of these vehicles have been produced as of the end of March.
All three vehicles feature better engines and transmissions and reduced overall weight to improve fuel economy. Plus, with Mazda’s new KODO-Soul of Motion design language, these vehicles look just as good as they drive.
“At Mazda we put everything into developing our SKYACTIV vehicles, and it is because these models have struck a chord with a wide range of customers all over the world that we have reached the one million-unit landmark” Masamichi Kogai, Representative Director, President and CEO of Mazda, said. “On behalf of Mazda, let me express my gratitude to each and every person who bought one of our cars. With our undying challenging spirit and a great deal of hard work, Mazda will continue to make even more appealing cars that will enrich the lives of their owners, and help us build a strong and lasting bond with our customers.”
