Mazda Helping the Environment with Sky Technology

Current gasoline engines in most cars waste about 70% of fuel's potential energy but Mazda is rethinking the old faithful combustion engine, and is putting something on the road that's better for the environment.
Current gasoline engines in most cars waste about 70% of fuel's potential energy but Mazda is rethinking the old faithful combustion engine, and is putting something on the road that's better for the environment.

They call it Sky Technology.

"We started out with a 2.0 liter, 4 cylinder."

They've raised the compression up, used volcano top pistons, and used a direct injection, and a coil-over system to actually achieve more horsepower, and more efficiency so you get better gas mileage out of it.

This car gets Hybrid mileage on a gasoline engine.  Skyactive Technology goes beyond just their engines.

"They've actually done tons of research to pull this together.  They've redone their transmissions, they've done the body construction as well.  They took higher strength steel and did a loop system in most of our cars now, to where it's got higher strength steel that's lighter weight.  So they've lightened the cars to make them more efficient as well."

There are several alternatives to fuel sources.  Electric, hydrogen, corn, but to really affect global fuel consumption right now, Mazda has found a way to rethink what is already now in production.

"they're trying to get out of the gasoline engine and make it as most efficient as they can, and obviously try to save the earth as well."

On the leading edge of technology, Mazda's redeveloped combustion engine gets more torque, better performance, higher efficiency , and of course, it's better for the environment.
