Mazda Unveils KAI CONCEPT and VISION COUPE at Tokyo Motor Show. Also, the Mazda Motor Corporation unveiled two concept models, the Mazda KAI CONCEPT and the Mazda VISION COUPE at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show. Organized by the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association. The Mazda KAI CONCEPT compact hatchback heralds a new generation of Mazda cars. Featuring the next-generation SKYACTIV-X gasoline engine, SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture and a more mature expression of the KODO design language, the model embodies the technology, engineering and design concepts that will define the next generation of Mazda cars.
Refinements in all areas of dynamic performance have produced a dramatically quieter, more comfortable ride and an enhanced performance feel. The KAI CONCEPT features muscular, solid proportions and its form is brought to life by a delicate flow of reflections over the body sides. The VISION COUPE represents Mazda’s design vision for next-generation models; a more mature expression of KODO applies a Japanese aesthetic to achieve more elegant and premium styling. The exterior features a “one motion” form that exudes a sense of speed and the interior combines three-dimensional depth with a strong longitudinal axis to create a relaxed space that maintains a sense of speed.
Mazda VISION COUPE:
The Mazda VISION COUPE perfectly embodies the elegant and refined atmosphere that is the target of next-generation Mazda design. Within the flowing 4-door coupe configuration the strikingly beautiful silhouette gives stirring visual expression to the vehicle’s high performance. While the sculpted athletic form is free of all fussy or unnecessary elements. A key factor in Mazda’s minimalist design approach. Strong highlights on the shoulders contrast with continuously changing reflections on the body sides to express a new sense of controlled vitality. Giving rise to a uniquely Mazda sense of elegance derived from Japanese aesthetics. The VISION COUPE sets the stage for the introduction of Mazda’s eye-catching, further evolved KODO design.
