Prices for Mazda MX-30 EV revealed
Mazda’s first-ever fully electric production vehicle will be priced at £26,995 (including Plug-in Car Grant) when it arrives early next year in First Edition form.
Featuring a 141hp motor powered by 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery, the MX-30 will have a range of around 124 miles and will initially be offered in a run of 500 First Edition models that are available to pre-order now.
The MX-30 will stay in keeping with Mazda’s design language and driver-focused dynamics while also carrying over the carmaker’s claimed class-leading interior quality.
First Edition models will come with standard interior equipment including a windscreen projecting head-up display, 8-way electric adjustable drivers’ seat, a colour 7-inch TFT dial display, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and chrome trim accents.
Onboard technology brings Mazda Connect, navigation, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with Mazda Radar Cruise control.
Customers ordering a Mazda MX-30 First Edition will also qualify for a free wall box home charger. The MX-30 can be charged via 6.6Kw domestic charging while the DC socket allows for rapid charging up to 50Kw, with a 0-80% capacity delivered in around 30-40 minutes.
Jeremy Thomson, managing director, Mazda Motors UK, said: “A battery electric vehicle conceived and created with Mazda’s well-renowned focus on distinctive styling, innovative technology, driver focused dynamics and class-leading interior quality, the MX-30 will be a stand out addition to the rapidly evolving EV marketplace. Part of Mazda’s multi-solution approach to efficient vehicles, the launch of our first pure electric car is a milestone moment for the brand and a landmark moment for our dealers and customers here in the UK.”
