About Mazda MX-30
Mazda MX-30 is a compact electric crossover offering only 200 kilometers of range. It is the first fully electric car Mazda ever built. MX-30 has also a plug-in hybrid version.
It comes with 143 HP, 271 Nm of torque and 140 km/h top speed. It can reach 100 km per hour in 9.7 seconds. Front-wheel drive electric SUV only supports 50 kW DC charging. Its 35.5-kWh small battery pack can be charged from 20 percent to 80 percent in 36 minutes.
Mazda has been manufacturing the MX-30 Electric and the plug-in hybrid versions at its Hiroshima plant in Japan since 2019. First electric Mazda is available in the United States, UK, and Europe. It starts at around £26,000 in the UK.
Mazda offers MX-30 with a single electric motor located at the front axle. It produces 143 horsepower and 271 Nm torque. Top speed is limited to 140 km per hour and reaching 100 km/h will take 9.7 seconds. It’s one of the slowest cars on its segment, but driving experience is very smooth and comfortable.
Design and Features
Mazda didn’t choose the futuristic EV design road when designing the MX-30. It is an ordinary looking car; front and back sides are almost identical to its gas-powered sibling CX-30. BMW i3-style clamshell doors (or as some calls it the freestyle doors) definitely give the car a more energetic feeling. But rear seat passengers can’t open their windows and accessing to the rear row is not easy. Styling eliminated the practicality in this case.
It has got an 8.8-inch non-touch infotainment display which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard. There is also a second screen for climate control, a 7-inch touch display contains large UI elements that better to use while driving.
12-speaker Bose sound system, electric front seat adjustments and sunroof all are only available on the highest trim level.
Range and Charging
Mazda provided MX-30 with a rather small battery pack, a 35.5-kWh capacity. It is enough for a range of 200 kilometers according to the WLTP testing cycle. Small electric crossover can be charge with 50 kW DC plugs. It takes 36 minutes to get from 20% to 80%. It can also be fully charged with the 6.6 kW AC on-board charger in 4.5 hours.
