Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI)
The SKYACTIV-X implements Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) technology to seamlessly transition between compression ignition and spark ignition. This engine is able to finely balance ignition timing and its air-to-fuel ratio to maximize fuel-efficiency. The result of this engine technology is the combination of the efficiency and torque of a diesel with lower CO2 emissions and greater drivability.
“We are humbled that Edison Awards steering committee and industry leaders selected Mazda’s SKYACTIV-X engine for a gold award,” said Masashi Otsuka, VP of R&D and design, Mazda North American Operations. “Mazda’s goal is to create a sustainable path forward, introducing cars and technologies that enrich people’s lives as well as society. This award means a great deal to the men and women who are building our future throughout Mazda Motor Corporation.”
