General Review Cross-Overs Mazda MX-30 MX-30 - (2020) 35.5 kWh e-SKYACTIV (143 Hp) Electric

Mazda's first attempt at an EV is a near miss!


Summary

Mazda has made progress since their first ever all-electric vehicle, the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata. While that car was also a plug-in hybrid for some degree of electrification, it left us with a sweet and fun electric car, rather than a zero-emissions SUV. So when will other automakers follow Mazda’s example? Well this is actually exactly what they are doing. Following up on their successful Active Driving Technology Navigation system and incorporating autonomous driving features into vehicles at different price ranges, automakers continue to upgrade their electronics systems to be future-proof. The 2022 Mazda MX-30 EV is another step in that direction for Mazda. Alongside Lexus’ LFA supercar and Mercedes’ GLC Coupe, the automaker showed off their latest EV concept at the Geneva International Motor Show this past March. Bringing together design cues from the iNext production EV revealed at CES 2019 in January and the CX-9 crossover revealed at Detroit Auto Show in January 2019, we see two key design elements that outline our concept EV: Powerhouse front fascia with recessed headlights as well as large air intakes underneath; and wraparound taillights reminiscent of those found on Audi Q8 eTron SUV unveiled earlier this year and Ford’s new Electric Coaster concept revealed during Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Is the Mazda mx-30 a crossover or SUV?

There’s one key question that Mazda is not yet answering about the new MX-30. What is it? Does it have four or two doors? It does not make sense to be asking this question since the concept car was never meant for production. That doesn’t mean we can’t dream of what the production model will look like though, given the specs and design cues outlined in our EV concept. The electric crossover has a clean design with no real cladding on any panels, save for roof rack and skid plates. The front fascia has a large central power intake flanked by twin LED headlights that provide enough light to illuminate your path when driving at night. The air intakes are located just behind the front wheels and provide plenty of ventilation for the engine cooling system, which would be located underneath the passenger compartment. Mazda could also utilize its active driving technology in this vehicle through an advanced navigation system as well as autonomous-driving features to keep you out of trouble while on the road. This would help make sure that you are always safe while driving and make sure you get where you need to go without having to worry about parking or navigating routes yourself. While there are still many questions surrounding this vehicle, one thing is certain: in terms of performance, size, technology, and styling, it looks like nothing else on today’s market!

2022 mazda mx-30 ev range

While the MX-30 is a concept and not slated for production, we can still get a look at what it might be like. The official range of the MX-30 is quoted by Mazda as being 3,000 km (about 1,864 miles). That’s quite a distance and should be enough to satisfy most who are looking for an all-electric vehicle. However, if you want even more range, you can always pop on an extra battery pack. The battery packs for the iNext and the GLC Coupe were about 2 meters (6 feet) long, so it’s likely that the MX-30 will have larger packs to accommodate its longer range. The price of this EV would likely start around $40,000 USD when it goes into production. We’re not sure if Mazda will stick with that pricing or go up or down from there. Like most EVs on the market today there will be no shortage of charging options out there with home plugs, public networks and probably even dedicated stations to make charging easier than ever before with their proprietary Smart Charging System.

Will there be a Mazda mx-30 ev range extender to increase range?

An additional range extender has been hinted at, and while it is not confirmed yet, the company is considering including a range extender on the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata EV. Mazda is also considering expanding their EV lineup to include another all-electric vehicle, with sources saying that it will be a crossover SUV. The automaker is also interested in electric vehicles for commercial use (think taxis).

What is mazda mx-30 ev price?

The mazda MX-30 EV was first unveiled as part of the company’s vision for the future of electric vehicles. The mazda MX-30 EV is a cross between an SUV and a crossover, with the design similar to that of the CX-9. It is currently not available but is expected to launch in 2022, however no official price has been announced yet.

What are other electric cars Mazda is working on?

Mazda is not just working on an all-electric crossover, it is also working on a diesel-electric hybrid. The automaker has confirmed that the vehicle will have a range of about 500 miles and be built in their Hiroshima plant. Furthermore, its platform is expected to serve as a basis for a smaller electric car. This may seem like a lot of work for one concept, but this release serves as the first of many steps Mazda intends to take with their electric future. Other EVs from Mazda will include the new 2019 MX-5 Miata, which will be revealed later this year. Unlike other concepts such as the iNext and Active Driving Technology Navigation system revealed by Lexus and Mercedes respectively last year at CES, those cars don’t appear to be part of Mazda’s MOE (Modular Electric) platform which acts as the backbone for all their future EVs.
