Mazda has announced that their new Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid will be outfitted with a 100% plant fiber based "biofabric" which will be used to cover the interior spaces. "The durable biofabric does not contain any oil-based materials and is resistant to abrasion and damage from sunlight, in addition to being flame retardant," GizMag noted. "The 100 percent plant-derived biofabric, will be featured in the Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show. The displayed car will also feature a bioplastic, which Mazda developed in 2006, for the vehicle's instrument panel and other interior fittings."
