Mazda has announced it will exhibit its Sassou three-door hatchback concept vehicle, and its futuristic four-seat rotary-engine sports car concept, the Senku at Beijing's Auto China 2006 (press day November 18th, 1006).

Also on display will be the MX-5 power retractable hard top, which makes its China debut and the 5 hydrogen RE hybrid.

This will be the first time Mazda's international motor show stand design will be used at a Chinese motor show.

The Sassou and Senku are two design concept vehicles conceived and developed in Europe and Japan respectively. The Sassou, designed in Germany, will make its Asian debut at this year's Auto China. The Senku, designed in Yokohama, was introduced at the 2005 Tokyo motor show.
