Mazda recently announced [2] that it will unveil it’s Kazamai crossover vehicle at the Moscow International Motor Show [3] in August. Specifics on the sporty vehicle’s environmental performance will be revealed next month, but to date the car maker is touting this ride as a car that will “deliver exciting driving dynamics, frugal fuel consumption and greatly reduced CO2 emissions.”

The concept is driven by a compact (by crossover/SUV standards) aerodynamic design and lightweight body. The company claims it is based on their “long-term vision for technology development, Sustainable Zoom-Zoom, which aims to provide a unique balance between sporty driving fun and superior environmental and safety performance.” The car will use a four-wheel drive powertrain with newly developed direct injection engine and transmission.

We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on next month’s show to see just how much of the Kazamai’s promise is delivered in Moscow this year.
