Mazda 2: i-ELOOP

i-ELOOP is a regenerative braking system. When you depress the brake pedal or use engine braking, the kinetic energy that occurs is converted to electrical energy by the power generator and the converted electrical energy is stored in the storage device. The stored electricity is used as power to charge the battery and the vehicle's electrical devices.




High-current electricity fl ows through the following parts, therefore do not touch them.
