Mazda MX-30 EV: Full-range pricing and specs revealed
Mazda has revealed full-range pricing and details for its MX-30 electric crossover, which arrives next spring priced from £25,545 (incl. OLEV grant).
Its first battery electric vehicle, the MX-30 brings a range of some 124 miles and is already available to pre-order in First Edition guise, priced from £27,495 (again with the OLEV grant) and limited to 500 units. Complementing this, the three-model line-up will continue the focus on styling, technology, driver-focused dynamics and interior quality.
As with the First Edition, the SE-L Lux, Sport Lux and GT Sport Tech trims all come with a 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery that supports AC charging up to 6.6kW via a Type 2 AC charging cable as standard, while the MX-30 can also be charged at up to 50kW DC rapid charging, giving an 80% charge in 36 minutes. Mazda is also offering packages for home charging solutions from its preferred partner NewMotion.
Standard equipment on all MX-30s includes 7-inch colour touch-screen air conditioning control panel, LED headlights with daytime running lights, reversing camera, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Intelligent Speed Assist, navigation and head-up display. The SE-L Lux also gets 18-inch alloy wheels, black door mirrors and a black grille and single-tone pain design.
The most popular model in the range is expected to be the £27,545 Sport Lux, with bespoke 18-inch alloys and the addition of power seats, lumber support adjustment and smart keyless entry. As with the First Edition, there’s the option to choose three-tone design.
The range-topping GT Sport Tech costs £29,845 with a light grey cloth interior trim and £30,045 when equipped with a dark grey interior and brown artificial leather. It also includes a front wiper de-icer and a power and tilt sunroof plus 360-dgree view monitor, along with a heated steering wheel and 12-speaker Bose surround sound.
All models are also focused on environmentally friendly materials as well as delivering typical Mazda handling. To enhance chassis performance, Electric G-Vectoring Control Plus (e-GVC Plus) uses torque to optimise the front-rear load shift for improved stability while the MX-30’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture has been set up to suit the e-Skyactiv drivetrain.
