The Mazda MX-30 will be the company’s first production electric car. Revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show, Mazda claims that it will offer more driving pleasure than other EVs, and this is in part due to what the company calls a ‘right-sized’ 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery, which gives a range of approximately 125 miles.
The five-seat Mazda MX-30 SUV will arrive in European dealerships during the second half of 2020 and the UK in 2021.
The Mazda MX-30’s e-Skyactiv package includes the battery being rigidly integrated into the vehicle body structure which enhances the overall body stiffness.
Mazda engineers have also created an electronic sound system inside the Mazda MX-30, which is synchronised to motor torque in sound frequency and sound pressure.
