All-electric Mazda MX-30 to cost £26,995

The pure electric Mazda MX-30 First Edition will cost £26,995 (after the UK government plug-in car grant) and the model will arrive in the UK in early 2021.

Mazda’s first battery electric vehicle, the five-seat MX-30 – limited to 500 cars in First Edition form in the UK – can be pre-ordered now, and they come with a free wall box charger.

The Mazda MX-30 crossover features an AC synchronous electric motor and a 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery that delivers a range of approximately 124 miles, and comes with AC charging up to 6.6kW and DC rapid charging designed to meet 125A Combo Charging standards.

UK pricing for the rest of the Mazda MX-30 range is due to be announced later in the year.

The car is equipped with both a Type 2 mode 2 charge cable for 3-pin plug charging and a Type 2 mode 3 charge cable for AC charging via home or public charge points. Additionally, the DC socket allows for rapid charging up to 50Kw. In this charge mode a charging time of 30 to 40 minutes can deliver up to 80 per cent battery charge.

Mazda says that the MX-30 has been designed to deliver an involving driving experience. Electric G-Vectoring Control Plus (e-GVC Plus) enhances chassis performance by using motor torque to optimise the front-rear load shift for improved stability.
