Mazda’s First All-Electric Vehicle: Mazda MX-30
Mazda has taken a leap into the EV market with the brand’s first all-electric vehicle, The Mazda MX-30. An electric SUV made for modern life, prices for the MX-30 First Edition start from £27,495, which is considerably cheaper than its main rivals. This is a limited run of the all-new Mazda MX-30. That said, what else do we know about this new EV? Read on to find out.
The new Mazda MX-30 is beautifully designed, with freestyle doors, 18” Alloy wheels and LED headlights, making it a stylish and sleek car. As for the interior, the MX-30 is tasteful, yet minimalistic, with high quality materials used throughout. In particular, we like the floating centre console, which gives the MX-30 a modern, elegant look, as well as additional storage space below and an integrated power socket. In front of this centre console is an excellent 7-inch touch-screen climate control display. Furthermore, the seat space is reported to be well designed to offer optimum comfort for both the front and rear passengers, along with the driver.
Range & Performance
The new MX-30 offers a smooth and comfortable drive whilst emitting 0 g/km CO2 emissions. Also, it has a combined range of up to 124 miles based on WLTP test cycle. But there’s no need to worry if it runs low on charge as this fantastic EV can also reach 20% - 80% charge in only 36 minutes when using a DC fast charging station. In addition, to give you peace of mind, the Mazda MX-30 has an 8 year/100,000 miles battery warranty, whichever comes first.

The Mazda MX-30 has been designed to offer supreme levels of safety and reliability. During stringent 2020 testing, this car received a 5-star Euro NCAP rating. With an excellent range of advanced safety features, we’re just going to highlight some of the main ones.
1. I-Activsense technologies helping to prevent collisions and raise awareness of hazards.
2. Smart Brake Support automatically applies the brakes if a risk of collision is detected, helping to ensure you have a safe journey.
3. Emergency Lane-Keeping with road keep and blind spot assist.
Another point to consider is the specification you desire. There are three other specs as well as the First Edition. As an entry-level trim, the SE-L Lux is minimalistic, yet stylish with advanced i-Activsense features. The 18” alloy wheels makes the MX-30 look sportier, while the LED headlights are elegant with a bright white light. As a mid-range trim, the Sport Lux offers some extra features such as heated front seats and is priced from £27,545. Although, in reality, it seems there isn’t too much difference between these two trim levels. The top of the range GT Sport Tech trim isn’t much more expensive with prices starting from £29,845. This comes with extra advanced safety technologies, as well as a 12-speaker Bose surround sound system. All these prices include the £3,000 Government OLEV Plug-In Vehicle Car Grant.
