Currently reading: Mazda's 'green revolution'
3 and 6 models will have sub-100g/km models by 2015

Mazda has announced a 'green revolution' that will result in all of its 3 and 6 models emitting below 120g/km of CO2 by 2015, and the cleanest falling below 100g/km.

If it achieves this goal, the Mazda 6 will be the first family car to have sub-100g/km CO2 emissions.

This equates to an average 30 per cent improvement in emissions and fuel consumption, which will be achieved using Mazda's new Skytech engine technology and lighter construction techniques.

This technology includes improved aerodynamics, retuned powertrains and the gradual introduction of technology such as i-stop, Mazda's equivalent of stop-start.

Mazda promises each new model it introduces will be at least 100kg lighter than the car it replaces.

The third strand of Mazda’s ‘green’ revolution features the introduction of a new six-speed automatic transmission that will deliver a further five percent fuel economy improvement

I think the author meant "D-sector", which is often refered to as a "family car".

Are the Passat and Prius not "D-Sector"? They both have pretty much the same wheelbase and interior measurements to the Mazda. Passat hits just over 100g CO2 and the Prius just below, a full 5 years before Mazda. It doesn't seem terribly rigorous journalism to me.
