The Kai Concept is said to embody the technology, engineering and styling concepts that will define the coming generation of Mazdas.

Refinements in all areas of dynamic performance have produced a considerably quieter, more comfortable ride and enhanced performance. The Kai Concept features muscular, solid proportions in a form brought to life by a delicate flow of reflections over the sides of the body.

Along with the Kai concept, Mazda also revealed another stunner in the form of the Vision Coupe Concept. The coupe features the KODO – Soul of Motion design language that expresses a minimalist Japanese aesthetic, achieving a simple ‘one-motion’ form that conveys a sense of speed.
