On the 19th May 2020, Mazda began production of the all-new Mazda MX-30, the company’s first all-electric vehicle at Ujina plant No 1 in Hiroshima in Japan. A stylish and versatile SUV, the MX-30 has been created in response to the increasingly high demand for Electric Vehicles amongst the environmentally conscientious in Europe. The new MX-30 is equipped with e-Skyactiv1, Mazda’s new electric drive technology. The front-wheel-drive powertrain combines a 107kW (AC synchronous electric motor with a 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery, equipping the new SUV with a driving range of approximately 200km WLTP combined. The system battery can be charged to 80% within approximately 40 minutes using DC rapid charging.

The MX-30’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture has been specifically tailored to complement the vehicle’s inherently smooth all-electric driving behaviour. In combination with the new SUV’s comprehensive i-Activsense safety systems, it offers customers a uniquely quiet, seamless driving experience which was a critical brief for the engineers

The latest expression of Mazda’s award-winning Kodo design philosophy reinforces this new direction for Mazda in powertrain technology development. Its uncompromisingly simple styling emphasises the MX-30s beauty as a solid mass, while centre-pillarless freestyle doors and a framed glasshouse hint at the open, spacious feeling of the cabin.

The ergonomically excellent interior features a driver-centric cockpit, a floating centre console, Mazda’s first seven-inch touch-screen air-conditioning panel, and a range of new, environmentally friendly materials such as cork and door trim fabric incorporating fibres from recycled plastic bottles.
