Mazda’s i-ELOOP regenerative braking system is an unconventional solution to the age-old problem of how to power the car’s electronic systems without sapping engine performance. See how it works in this animated video clip.
Traditional cars constantly route engine power through the alternator to constantly provide electrical power, but Mazda’s i-ELOOP system utilizes a freewheeling alternator which only engages when the gas pedal is released. This configuration provides a considerable gain in fuel economy.
The i-ELOOP regenerative braking system is just one of several innovative performance technologies found in the new Mazda lineup. Experience the next step forward in Mazda engineering and schedule a test drive here at Brown’s Fairfax Mazda by calling (888) 514-3006 today.
