In the quest for better environmental performance, the goal was to reduce fuel consumption and emissions without compromising driving performance. To get there, they started with a clean sheet of paper and engineered every major component of the automobile to work together in efficient harmony. The result is something revolutionary.
The Takeri is also fitted with Mazda’s i-stop idling stop system and a unique regenerative braking system called ‘i-ELOOP’ (Intelligent Energy Loop). The i-ELOOP is billed as the world’s first kinetic energy recovery system that uses a capacitor and a 25V to 12V alternator instead of a traditional battery pack.
