Revealed at the end of last year at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Mazda MX-30 has just taken a new step. This Wednesday, the Japanese brand announced the start of production of the electric car at the factory in Ujina, Hiroshima, Japan. The all-electric Mazda MX-30 will arrive in European dealerships in the second half of 2020.
The Mazda MX-30 is available in four trim levels and sold from 33,490 euros excluding bonuses.
The new Mazda MX-30 is equipped with e-Skyactiv - Mazda's new electric drive technology. The front-wheel drive train combines a 107 kW (145 hp) AC synchronous electric motor with a 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, which enables the Mazda MX-30 to achieve a range of up to 262 kilometres in a pragmatic WLTP cycle. The Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture of the Mazda MX-30 was specially tailored to complement the effortless, fully electric driving behaviour of the car.
Equipped with a Combo charging port, the MX-30 can be recharged to 80% in about 40 minutes on a DC fast-charging station.
In 2021, Mazda plans to add a version with a range extender, and the small electric engine should noticeably increase the range. The Japanese do not yet give technical data or prices for this version.
