Mazda M Hybrid is an innovative evolution of hybrid car technology. It uses a small generator to capture energy that is normally wasted during braking. It stores that energy using it to assist the engine, saving fuel in the process by powering the car's electrical systems and optimising your drive. So it's not the same as a plug in hybrid, or a conventional hybrid electric vehicle - no plug or charging is required.
When you decelerate the generator produces electricty which is stored in a 24 volt battery. This electricity is then used for starting the engine and providing engine assistance when you pull away and across gear changes.
With the electric motor assisting, pulling away from a standstill is easier. When you change gear the battery supports the engine, evening out any inconsistencies in your driving.
With engine assist from restart, gear shift assist control, and automatic engine shut off below 6mph you will get improved fuel consumption, lower emissions and an improved driving experience.
