The Japanese company is staying true to its “never stop challenging” initiatives as evidenced by their development of Skyactiv Technology and now furthering innovation with another rotary powered car.
For those of you that don’t know, this is not Mazda’s first time creating a vehicle featuring the rotary engine. Mazda first released the Cosmo Sport in 1967 with a rotary engine and a victorious rotary powered racecar at the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
The new RX-VISION Concept has a front engine with rear-wheel drive. As could be expected, Mazda chose a slick design and bright red paint job with simple handcrafted leather interior for the Tokyo show.
As of now, it’s still a two-seater concept with no production schedule, says Mazda CEO Masamichi Kogai. That said, if things go well, it seems likely they just might change their minds.
The Mazda RX-VISION Concept is on display and open to the public from October 30 – November 8.
