The Edison Awards are given out by the Edison Universe, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to fostering innovation in both educational and professional worlds. The Edison Awards have been given out since 1987 and honor development, marketing, design and innovation.

Mazda was awarded an Edison Award thanks to its innovative SKYACTIV-X engine that features Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI). SPCCI technology allows a gasoline combustion engine to increase fuel efficiency without sacrificing power or performance.

Mazda says the new SKYACTIV-X engine offers improved engine response, 10-30 percent more output and 35-45 percent more torque (than Mazda gasoline engines manufactured before 2008).

SKYACTIV-X engines combine the best of both diesel (power and torque) and gasoline (efficiency) engines with the “X” in SKYACTIV-X representing the combination of these two powertrains.

Shoppers will first find the new SKYACTIV-X engine on 2020 Mazda3 models. The SKYACTIV-X engine is a part of the Mazda Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030 campaign which features innovation goals for reducing emission, improving safety technology and focusing more on customers.
