Mazda Goes Green

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Serra Mazda Birmingham wants to protect the planet just as much as everyone else. Although cars can be blamed for part of today’s problems Mazda has come out with multiple innovations to reduce our carbon footprint. A lot of research and development goes into our cars, and we hope you take a minute to learn about how we’re making a difference.

Mazda is proud of its SKYACTIV® Technology, which strives to improve engines, transmission output, and fuel efficiency without compromising performance. The brand uses cutting-edge technology in its vehicles to help the environment as much as possible. One such material is called bioplastics: a high-strength, carbon-neutral material made from plants instead of petroleum. Building a vehicle with bioplastics decreases CO2 emissions and boosts fuel economy due to lighter cars. It’s something so unnoticeable to the eye, but something extraordinary to those who know about it.

One of the most eco-friendly Mazda cars is the 2016 CX-5. This sporty compact SUV is efficient and should be on your short-list. The 2016 Mazda CX-5 features an impressive fuel economy at an estimated 26 mpg in the city and an estimated 35 on the highway, without any hybrid or electrical capabilities. You won’t even realize the impact you’re making when driving this car. Beyond the CX-5, the company is offering a number of alternatives. Adding to the hybrid and electric models is a focal point for the coming years.

Talk to our Serra Mazda Birmingham staff about how your next Mazda vehicle can help protect our planet. We are more than happy to give the information you’re looking for and answer your questions so you can feel comfortable knowing you’re driving away in an eco-friendly car.
