Mazda 2: i-ELOOP

Mazda2 Owners Manual

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.

  • A variable voltage alternator is incorporated in the power generator which converts the kinetic energy to electricity and can generate electricity effi ciently according to the vehicle conditions.
  • A capacitor is incorporated in the storage device used for storing the generated electricity, which can store large amounts of electricity instantly and be utilized quickly.
  • A DC-DC converter is incorporated which steps down the stored electricity to voltage useable by the vehicle's electrical devices.
