New Mazda Kai Concept Showcases Single Motion Design

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.

New Mazda Concept Cars Dazzle at Tokyo Motor Show

This past October at the Tokyo Motor Show, Mazda unveiled two new concept cars: the Kai Concept and the new Vision Coupe. They both flaunt bodies with futuristic, sporty contours and styling.


The Vision Coupe is a low-sitting, modern sports car that is both elegant and ferocious. It has a beak-inspired front end that is complemented by its wing-like contours on the sides. The side mirrors are replaced by cameras, and the rear end has inset taillights and tailpipes.

Its interior is similarly smooth and luxurious, with rounded finishes in high-quality materials such as leather on the seats and wheel and attractive wood trim. The Vision Coupe’s interior foregrounds the wheel and gear stick, with the console spanning thinly across the dash.

The Kai Concept is similar to the Vision Coupe, with smooth lines contrasting interesting angles, recessed headlights, taillights, tailpipes, and cameras instead of side mirrors. The Kai Concept features Mazda’s innovative and state-of-the-art SKYACTIV-X engine, along with two elegant front-to-back sunroofs, which offer sweeping light from the windshield to the rear of the car.

We at El Dorado Mazda are excited for the future of Mazda cars, and we think you should be too.
