On display in Moscow will be a Russian-specification sedan featuring a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter gasoline engine mated to a SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic transmission.  The vehicle also will feature "i-ELOOP," the world's first capacitor-based regenerative braking system.  In real-world driving conditions, which involve frequent acceleration and braking, i-ELOOP, a name derived from "Intelligent Energy Loop," will improve fuel economy by up to 10 percent.

More information on the all-new 2014 Mazda6 sedan will be announced during a press conference on Wednesday, August 29.  The complete lineup of 2014 Mazda6 vehicles will make their global debut in late September at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.  Markets and specific models will be announced at a later date.
