The new Mazda MX-30 is Mazda’s first production vehicle with battery-electric drive. The elegant and versatile crossover will roll into the showrooms of German Mazda dealers on September 25 and 26, 2020 and starts at prices from 32,645 euros.
The limited edition of the Mazda MX-30 with the First Edition package (from 33,134 euros) is particularly attractive. With its extensive range of features, it offers a customer benefit of 2,534 euros and can only be ordered in advance. The environmental bonus of currently €9,480 is also taken into account when the sales contract is concluded. Accordingly, the Mazda MX-30 with First Edition package can be purchased for 23,654 euros.
Mazda calls “rightsizing” the approach of giving an electric vehicle a medium-term electricity mix in Germany and Europe with lower total mileage. The 35.5 kWh strong and therefore relatively light high-voltage battery plays a key role in achieving this Mazda MX-30 range of up to 262 kilometers as per WLTP rating, while at the same time having a positive impact on CO2 emissions over the lifetime.
The Mazda MX-30’s “Human Modern” design concept is expressed in different approaches. The exterior, for example, is characterized by uncompromising simplicity that emphasizes its beauty even more. The styling looks friendly, while the passenger compartment conveys a feeling of lightness – also thanks to the counter-opening freestyle doors. The interior aims to ensure that the occupants feel safe despite all openness. In addition to a “floating” center console there are unique materials that also minimize environmental pollution. The Mazda MX-30 embodies an expressive vehicle design.
With the Mazda MX-30, the company presents the new electric drive technology e-Skyactiv. So that the vehicle immediately follows the driver’s commands, it is equipped with the electric G-Vectoring Control Plus (e-GVC Plus) driving dynamics control. The precise torque control and a suitable sound provide natural feedback that is tailored to human perception and tells the driver how the car behaves.
In combination with the dynamic driving behavior, these factors raise the brand-typical driving pleasure to a new level. The e-Skyactiv engine develops an output of 107 kW / 145 hp between 4,500 and 11,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 271 Nm in the range between 0 and 3,240 revolutions per minute. The front-wheel drive Mazda MX-30 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.7 seconds and top speed is limited to 140 km/h. The power consumption is 17.3 kWh/100 km (NEDC combined).
With a view to ensuring that road traffic is as accident-free as possible, Mazda’s proactive safety concept forms the basis for continuous improvements to safety systems. In addition to an advanced emergency braking assistant (SBS), which now also helps to avoid collisions at intersections, new technologies help to keep the vehicle on course even on roads without lane markings.
Despite the use of freestyle doors and the associated elimination of the fixed B-pillar, the body reliably and efficiently absorbs the energy generated in the event of an accident, thus offering excellent collision safety.
Mazda engineers also use the latest technologies and development concepts, including a carefully developed structure to protect the high-voltage battery. Customers enjoy the Mazda MX-30’s responsive performance without compromising on safety.
