The Mazda Kaan was created for the 2008 LA Auto Show Design Challenge. The 2008 design brief called for a racing car for the year 2025.

The Mazda Kaan is an electric race car designed to compete in E1 racing, a conceptual race series Mazda has dreamed up.

The Mazda Kaan story says that in 2025, California freeways have been resurfaced with a sub-level electro-conductive polymer that powers the electric cars of the modern world. Mazda's electronic tire system uses this technology to power the Kaan concept to reach 250 mph with no harmful emissions!

The vehicles are piloted by individual drivers but teams are made up of thirty cars, all on the track together. Using strategies similar to those in cycling peletons, the tighter the group sticks together, the more aerodynamic and powerful it becomes.

Inspiration for the Mazda Kaan comes from electric fields and textures seen in nature, particularly those in a lightning bolt. The car is uniquely designed around its powerful electric wheels while the cockpit acts as a capsule to safely house the driver, allowing for tighter peloton formations and a team victory.
