Innovative, but I question the need and additional complexity.  Is it really value added?    Hard to be fuel conscious in a sports car.   Maybe for a mini van.

The write-up states that Mazda claims a "five-percent improvement in efficiency", but, is that an improvement in fuel efficiency or in the energy consumption efficiency of the car's charging system?  Do the vehicle's electronics really consume over 5% of the fuel burned?  I agree, Glen... is this really value added in a Miata?
