Mazda MX-30 is an electric car of Mazda brand, presented in the body of a compact crossover. The electric car is focused on the global car market and is intended to be the company’s pioneer in the industry segment that is new to it.
The Mazda MX-30 features an innovative electric powertrain called e-SKYACTIV, which combines the motor, inverter and junction box into one high-voltage unit that is mounted at the front of the car. The transmission is rated at 105 kW (142 hp) with 265 N⋅m of torque.
The electric car is equipped with a 35.5 kW⋅h lithium-ion battery with a total voltage of 355 V, which offers a range of 210 km on the WLTP cycle. The battery can be charged at 50 kW fast charging stations (CCS Combo or CHAdeMO, depending on the region) as well as from 6.6 kW AC power sources. The Mazda MX-30 battery pack has an advanced refrigerant cooling system.
The exterior design of the electric car cannot be called overly original, as modern Mazda styling can be guessed in every detail. Nevertheless, the car was created in accordance with Mazda’s new design phase, Kodo – Soul of Motion, which positions the car as a piece of art.
The main emphasis in the Mazda MX-30 is on the lightness and compactness of the model, probably the designers of the company associate the car with the electric powertrain with this.
The car is absolutely not brutal, rather friendly and focused on a young audience.
Of the features that are immediately visible in the exterior, we note the hinged half-leaf rear doors. Quite an original solution, which is true already has one of the electric car competitors, and also met earlier in the model range of Mazda itself.
Inside the car, engineers and designers paid attention to the technological aspect of the design. Despite the fact that there are no revelations in the design, in the cabin the car is perceived as an innovative product with well thought-out ergonomics. The developers have proposed a new solution for the torpedo and the central tunnel, allocating them several levels and forming a kind of “floating console”. Taking into account the instrument panel in the electric car as much as 3 displays, a pleasant and understandable layout of control systems.
It is clearly seen that the designers worked in detail on the texture of the interior design, in particular the design of door cards, which are made of fiber material with texture, in order to emphasize the airiness and environmental friendliness of the car. In the console of the central tunnel, a special material Heritage Cork is used to create a special warm atmosphere in the cabin.
Overall, the entire interior is imbued with an eco-friendly spirit and is dominated by natural gray tones. Fibers from recycled plastic bottles are used in the door trim, and the wood décor is made from harvested tree bark without cutting it down.
The MX-30 features the i-Activsense safety system, with the most advanced driver assistance features such as collision avoidance (Smart Brake Support) or keeping the car in its lane (Road Keep Assist and Blind Spot Assist).

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
A public charging station is required to use the highest possible charging rate. The EVSE/charging station’s charging capacity affects how long it takes to fully charge the battery. The table below shows all possible options for fully charging the Mazda MX-30.
In Europe, plugging an electric car into an outlet is often as easy as plugging it into a household outlet, but there are differences from country to country. The table below shows the different ways to charge the Mazda MX-30, but in some countries some chargers may not be available.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)
If you want to enjoy driving an electric car, one of the most important features to consider is the number of miles per hour the car can travel while charged. This is called the “range” of the car. All electric cars have a certain range, even if they are 100% charged. This is because they do not have an internal combustion engine to lean on if you need to drive a long distance.
