Auto fans recognize Mazda for its signature look, which utilizes the brands well-known Kodo design language. There’s no doubt that it’s easy to recognize a Mazda when you’re driving down the street. Now, though, the brand is looking to branch out beyond its usual look—and it does just that with the Kai Concept.
During the New York Auto Show earlier this year, the Mazda Kai Concept introduced a brand-new design language called the Single Motion design—also referred to as “The Speed of Light.” It supplies smooth surfaces, highlighting the way that light and shadow reflects off the vehicle, while also hinting at the model’s athletic performance.
This departure from the previous Double Motion styling, which utilizes strong, accented edges rather than smooth lines, is worth a note—especially since it showcases Mazda’s ability to innovate. It also brings a futuristic feeling to the brand’s lineup, making it easy to get excited to see what the Japanese carmaker has in store down the road.
The Kai Concept itself hasn’t received a production or release date just yet, and we’re not sure if it ever will, but it certainly means that Mazda is taking progressive steps in the design realm. Stop by El Dorado Mazda for more information about this exciting style direction, and to test drive a new Mazda model.
