Mazda 3 Owners Manual: i-ELOOP

On conventional vehicles, the kinetic energy that is generated when the vehicle is decelerated by applying the brakes or during engine braking ends up being discarded as heat. By utilizing this discarded kinetic energy to generate electricity and use it to power the vehicle's electrical devices and accessories such as the A/C and audio, fuel consumption can be reduced. Mazda's system for generating electricity from this kinetic energy is called the Regenerative Braking System (i-ELOOP).

A capacitor is incorporated as the device for storing the generated electricity, which can store and use large amounts of electricity instantly.
