Mazda Delays North American SKYACTIV-D Clean Diesel Launch

January 14, 2014

Mazda North American Operations hasannounced that the launch of its SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine in North America is being further delayed from its announced Spring 2014 debut. 

While Mazda understands its SKYACTIV-D can meet emission regulation requirements without the use of a NOx after-treatment system, the automaker said that it was decided that further development is required to deliver the right balance between fuel economy and Mazda-appropriate driving performance.

Further information on the program, including a timeline of launch for North America, technical specifications and fuel economy will be available at a later date, closer to launch.
