Mazda SkyActiv Skyactiv-G 1.3:
To help make our environment green, it will start with a clean and efficient engine. One of the top automotive manufacturers, Mazda is one of the most admirable companies in the world as its main concern is not only to produce quality cars, but most of all a car which does not contribute to the degradation of the environment.
To prove their cause, they are now working with their latest Skyactiv-G 1.3” engine that runs equivalently to 70mpg.
Apparently, the engine of this Demio car includes a 1.3 liter direct injection mill, variable transmission and a 30km per liter stop-start tech.
Its compression ratio was raised to 14:1 and revised pistons, other mods, multi-hole fuel injectors were installed to achieve higher efficiency and a more précised and improved combustion.
Add to that, the engine pumps out 83 horsepower at 5,400 rpm and 84-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm.
This is so cool, but we won’t be seeing this newest gasoline and diesel engines of Mazda in North America. However, the Skyactiv 2.0-liter version is expected for the next CX-5.
So far, the Mazda’s work on electric hybrid cars is commendable although it’s quite way behind than the 2011 Nissan Leaf which mpg equivalent is 99, still Mazda is doing well in producing environmentally friendly cars.
One thing that matters in car manufacturing industry is not only the great deal of money that they can get from the consumers, but also the output of their products to the environment and to the people as a whole.
