2007 Mazda Ryuga Concept

Another zoom-zoomer, this time with gull wings.

Mazda says it's bringing a concept to the 2007 Detroit auto show that's built around the concept of flow. Included in that flow are, if the accompanying sketch is to be believed, a pair of gullwing doors.

The new concept has been dubbed the Ryuga. Paired with the Nagare concept unveiled at last month's Los Angeles auto show, the Ryuga will emphasize richness and luxury. Mazda promises "rich fabrics, engineered fits and hidden details" in the new concept, "portraying unique Japanese beauty."

Chief designer Laurens van den Acker says the new car combines "vibrance, confidence, fun and youth all in one ingenious package."


And in this episode of "so that's why Mazda gets a new Tribute..."

With the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid already rolling on to the Los Angeles auto show floor, you just knew Mazda's Tribute hybrid wouldn't be far behind.

In fact the 2008 Mazda Tribute HEV will be coming to the 2007 Detroit auto show in January. Mazda says the new gas-electric crossover will be its first vehicle "dedicated to clean air." The concept will join the Ryuga gull-wing concept car on the show floor at Cobo.

The Japanese automaker, one-third owned by Ford, says the Tribute HEV will be one of the least-polluting vehicles on the road. Its four-cylinder gas engine and battery pack will combine to produce 155 horsepower while meeting PZEV and SULEV-II emissions standards, the strictest applied to any vehicle sold in the U.S.
