Mazda unveils Deep Orange 3 Concept

Japanese automaker Mazda has made an interesting and surprising reveal this week at the Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars in Traverse City, Michigan. It’s called the Deep Orange 3 and was created by students learning at the Clemson University and the Art Center College of Design.

This is a very appealing hatchback wearing a gray paint scheme and featuring a svelte bodywork which is the creation of Frederick Naaman. It adopts a unique 3+3 seating layout and has a “sheet-folding” load-bearing structure.

The 2013 Mazda Deep Orange 3 Concept is motivated by a new type of hybrid powertrain that depending on the road conditions, it can automatically select a front-, rear- or all-wheel drive configuration. There are no details at this moment regarding a production version derived from this interesting concept.
