NEW Mazda MX-30 Crossover: Mazda's First Pure Electric Vehicle Unveiled

Today marks the unveiling of the Mazda MX-30 which happens to be the Japanese car manufacturer's first-ever EV! It comes in the form of a classy crossover and we can’t help but compare the similarities and differences against the upcoming CX-30.

For example, where the CX-30 achieves an overall curvaceous physique, the MX-30 takes on a more angular stance with a squarer shoulder line at the top front of the roof and boxy wheel arches. The MX-30 also presents a new unique sleek front grille never seen before on any other Mazda

This aggressive styling is refreshing to see within the brand's line-up and gives you an insight into the diversity of Mazda's Kodo: Soul of Motion design. But before we get into that, you may want to know that one of the most talked-about features of the MX-30 thus far has been the resurrection of freestyle doors as were seen on the Mazda RX-8 back in 2010.

The generous 82-degree opening is both eye-catching and practical and provides you with an easily accessible entry for both front and rear seating.

Mazda has branded the all-new electric MX-30 as "the SUV alternative for people ahead of the times". The pure electric model uses a 35.5kWh battery and promises a driving range of at least 200km (125 miles) completely emission-free. 

By choosing a lighter battery weight, Mazda engineers achieve a near 50/50 weight distribution for a remarkably linear drive. Specially designed e-Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture and G-Vectoring Control Plus further enhance precision and responsiveness in the all-new electric Mazda.

Hybrid and Plug-In versions are rumoured to become available later in the year but for now, it is clear that the Japanese manufacturer is set to release a pure electric model early 2021.

The Mazda MX-30 will come with Mode 2 and Mode 3 charging settings, meaning you will be able to charge your MX-30 via standard mains electricity (Mode 2) as well as connecting it to a wall box (Mode 3). You will also benefit from AC and DC settings which enable both at-home or on-the-go charging.

To put things into perspective, Mazda say you can get up to 80% charge within 30-40 minutes on a 50kW DC charger. Use a 22kW AC wall box charging station and you get can back on the road with full charge within 4.5 hours.

But being electric isn't the only thing that makes the Mazda MX-30 sustainable. The interior of the pure electric crossover utilises rich, high-quality recycled materials to produce an atmosphere never felt before.

Mazda Takumi craftspeople have focussed on creating an environment of natural-feeling: "overall the Mazda MX-30 is characterised by high recyclability, confidently cloaked in modern design".

Take for example the hand-crafted cork surfaces within the floating centre console which has been crafted to be symbolic of Mazda's iconic Jinba Ittai philosophy - that car and driver are one and work in perfect harmony.

The Mazda MX-30 has been designed to create bespoke experiences and that is why you will have the choice of 3 different interior design packages across the range. The Mazda MX-30 should be thought of as an instrument of self-expression and individuality.

The Mazda MX-30 comes with a battery warranty that will keep you covered for 8 years or 100,000 miles - whichever comes first - but that's not all that covers you.

Advanced i-ACTIVSENSE safety features such as Smart City Brake Support, Lane-Keep Assist System, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane-Keep Warning System and Turn-Across Traffic make sure you get the most out of your MX-30 wherever it takes you.
