When designing the Mazda SkyActiv engine, the engineers at Mazda fine-tuned each vehicle component to deliver maximum efficiency and power. To complement the energy-saving technology of the SkyActiv engine, Mazda developed i-ELOOP Regenerative Braking Technology. This innovative regenerative braking system converts the kinetic power created by the brakes into electricity that powers the electric system of the vehicle. Each time you step on the brakes, the i-ELOOP transforms the kinetic energy of the brakes into electricity that powers essential electrical functions such as the lights and navigation system. By transferring the creation of electric energy from the engines to the brakes, the i-ELOOP system improves the fuel economy of a vehicle by up to five percent.
