2014 Mazda6’s fuel efficiency gets a boost with i-Eloop!

Imagine a mid-sized sedan that gets better fuel efficiency than top selling subcompacts. At Don Mealey’s Sport Mazda, an Orlando new Mazda dealership, auto shoppers can get behind the wheel of the 2014 Mazda6 now equipped with Mazda’s i-Eloop technology! Part of the SKYACTIV technology engineering philosophy set by Mazda, the i-Eloop is a regenerative braking system that converts the raw energy created while braking to charge and store energy to power electronic components in the Mazda6. The benefit of this extra power is that fuel economy receives a slight boost pushing it to 28 mpg city and 40 mpg highway which beats top selling subcompacts!
The regenerative braking technology allows the i-Eloop to power electronic components without wasting fuel.

It’s important to note that this kind of mileage is extremely rare in a mid-sized sedan that is not a hybrid or diesel powered. The i-Eloop is available on the 2014 Mazda6 Grand Touring when equipped with the GT Technology package and has a starting price of $32,570. These past few weeks have been pretty exciting for Mazda especially coming off of the recent wave of interest after the unveiling of the 2014 Mazda3 last month. There is no official word yet that the i-Eloop will be available on the new Mazda3 or CX-5 in the near future, but it would be hard not to speculate since the new Mazda3 has taken a strong lead from the Mazda6.
