No word on when the launch might happen

In Europe and other parts of the world, cars powered by diesel engines are very common. However, in the the U.S. market, only Volkswagen Group of America (VWoA) has found the great success with its TDI engines. VWoA recently announced that it crossed the 100,000 sales mark for the first time in the U.S. for TDI sales in its Volkswagen and Audi branded vehicles.
 
Mazda is looking to get in on the diesel action as well, but the company has been dragging its feet for quite some time. Early last year, Mazda announced that its Skyactiv-D engine would be coming to the Mazda 6 midsize sedan in the second half of 2013. However, the company announced that it was delaying that launch until Spring 2014 due to a failure to meet emissions regulations.

Now, Mazda has announced that it is delaying the launch of the Skyactiv-D engine in the Mazda 6 yet again, but this time the delay is needed to “deliver the right balance between fuel economy and Mazda-appropriate driving performance.”
 
Since it promised and failed to deliver twice on its Skyactiv-D engine, Mazda isn’t announcing another launch date. The company simply states, “further information on the program, including a timeline of launch for North America, technical specifications and fuel economy will be available at a later date, closer to launch."
