Mazda's stand at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2009 will adopt the theme: "Driving-oriented environmental technologies for endless driving pleasure." The spirited lineup of exhibits will include the next-generation Mazda Axela (North American spec Mazda3), which is being revealed for the first time in Japan. Other exhibits will include "Circuit Trial" versions of the all-new Mazda Axela, Mazda RX-8, other popular Mazda models, and six customized versions of the new Mazda Biante minivan, which went on sale earlier this year.
Mazda will also present unique environmental technologies that will ensure it can continue to provide all its customers with driving pleasure in a sustainable future. These include the Mazda Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid, which combines Mazda's proprietary hydrogen rotary engine with an electric motor, and i-stop. an engine start-stop system that Mazda has independently developed by utilizing direct injection technology.
