Mazda has built up a reputation for always pushing the limits of automotive technology, which is one of many reasons why the brand is so beloved by Tampa and Sarasota drivers. That passion for innovation has led to the development of a whole new kind of brake energy regeneration system called i-ELOOP, which looks to revolutionize vehicle efficiency. But what exactly is i-ELOOP, and what makes it such a big deal? We’ve put together this guide to help explain this impressive piece of tech, as well as how it can make your drive better than ever. Check it out below, then stop by Cox Mazda to browse our expansive vehicle inventory today.

Our Breakdown of the Mazda i-ELOOP

Essentially, the i-ELOOP is a brake energy regeneration system. But what does that mean? Well, when you take your foot off of the gas pedal, the still running engine produces a lot of kinetic energy as it decelerates, energy which usually gets wasted. However, i-ELOOP is able to recover this energy and convert it into stored electricity. This electricity can then be used to power a range of devices, from your audio system to your climate control, lowering the amount of electricity that needs to be produced and, which lowers the fuel consumption as well. The end result is that your Mazda vehicle gets much better mileage, which saves you money at the pump.

Of course, i-ELOOP isn’t the only high-tech feature on offer from Mazda. This innovative brand provides a multitude of advanced technology, including:

  • MAZDA CONNECT™: Bring more functionality and enjoyment to your drive with this infotainment system, which adds communication tools and connectivity.
