After it announced its intention to unveil a brand new concept during this year 44th Tokyo Motor Show, Mazda finally decided to show its creation.

Anticipated by a teaser image, the all new Mazda RX-Vision Concept is ready to take the central stage in Tokyo.RX-Vision represents a future that Mazda hopes to one day make reality: a front-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car with KODO design-based proportions, powered by the next-generation SKYACTIV-R rotary engine.

Rotary engines feature a unique construction, generating power through the rotational motion of a triangular rotor. Overcoming numerous technical difficulties, Mazda succeeded in commercializing the rotary engine. As the only automaker to mass-produce the rotary engine, Mazda continued efforts to improve power output, fuel economy and durability, and in 1991 took overall victory at 24 Hours of Le Mans with a rotary engine-powered race car.

While mass production is currently on hold, Mazda has never stopped researching and developing the rotary engine. The next rotary engine has been named SKYACTIV-R, expressing the company’s family of SKAYCTIV TECHNOLOGY.
