The Mazda5 Hydrogen RE Hybrid concept vehicle will also be on the stand on January 8.
The Kabura was designed at Mazda’s design centre in Irvine, California. It is the third design concept vehicle from Mazda in the last five months following Mazda Sassou (designed at Mazda’s European design centre in Oberursel, Germany) and Mazda Senku (designed at Mazda’s Yokohama design centre near Tokyo). It is fitted with a rear-wheel drive engine.
The five-seater CX-7 features 18-inch aluminium wheels and is powered by the MZR 2.3-litre DISI (direct injection spark ignition), an intercooled 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine, that produces 244bhp at 5,000 rpm.
The specifications of the European version will be revealed in late 2006.
