Autosphere » Fleet » Mazda Unveils SKYACTIV-X Prototype

New engine technology promises to reduce fuel consumption, cut emissions, and boost performance.

Irvine, California – Mazda invited key members of the North American media to the Mazda North American Operations’ R&D centre in California to learn about the next generation of SKYACTIV technologies.

Known as SKYACTIV-X, the innovative engine management technology couples a lean fuel mixture (runs on regular 87 octane fuel) with a 16:1 compression, thereby reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, while boosting fuel economy along with power and torque.

Mazda also had a pre-production prototype vehicle on hand for a test drive.

SKYACTIV-X will be phased in with the 7th generation of Mazda vehicles, starting in 2019. According to the company, SKYACTIV-X will likely be an option in Canada on some of the higher-end trim levels.

Look for a full report in a future issue of fleetdigest.
