Clemson University Engineering Students and College of Design in Pasadena did their best by creating a partnership with 2018-2019 Mazda hatchback concept Deep Orange 3 with six seats. Chassis presented more as part of the show the SEMA- in Las Vegas, but now there was a ready prototype body panels.
Firstly, the concept draws its spectacular appearance. Thank you say is Frederick Naaman painted exterior vehicle in accordance with the design concept of the manufacturer «KODO – Soul of Motion ‘. hatchback length is 4450 mm, width 1905 mm, height 1350 mm. All this when stretched to 2730 mm wheelbase.
Minivan prototype language does not turn to call, but its interior is designed for 6 people with the landing formula 3 + 3. It’s all about the results of the study, showed that the new generation of drivers would like to have a car with the number of seats more than 5. In show car even claimed trunk volume of 300 liters.
Secondly, 2018-2019 Mazda Deep Orange 3 has a unique transmission and a hybrid power plant. As a result, the concept of surprise and even the ability to be different in terms of the drive (front, rear or AWD). The front axle rotates aluminum internal combustion engine capacity of 1.5 liter turbocharged, develops power of 140 horsepower and a torque of 210 Nm.
Rear mounted electric motor with a peak power of 107 horsepower. The total output of the power unit is 208 l / s and 335 Nm. The prototype is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission and accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour (96 km / h) for seven and a half seconds. The maximum speed is limited to 200 km / h.
In the future the automotive industry will use the new, more cost-effective production of innovative approaches. The concept clearly demonstrates 2018-2019 Mazda’s advanced technology and fresh ideas, and for the students it was an opportunity to gain valuable experience in vehicle design with one of the world’s automotive giants.
