In 2010, approximately 17,000 all-electric vehicles were on the roads worldwide. By 2019, however, more than 7 million EVs were being driven around the world. Electric vehicle sales have skyrocketed in recent years as consumers have begun to prioritize efficiency and eco-friendliness in the vehicles they drive. Mazda has plans for their sustainable and stylish MX-30.
Most major automakers have responded to the continuously increasing consumer demand for electric vehicles on the mainstream auto market by adding at least one of their own all-electric models to their vehicle lineup over the past few model years. From passenger sedans to crossover SUVs to pickup trucks, models from virtually every vehicle segment have been electrified by various major automakers around the world.
Although it is one of the most reputable and well-known major automakers worldwide, Japanese automaker Mazda has not yet mass-marketed an electric car of their own. That is about to change, however, as Mazda gets ready to release their very first all-electric vehicle—an electric crossover SUV titled the Mazda MX-30. The MX-30 EV is expected to be available for purchase in mid- to late-2021 as a model for the 2022 model year.
Mazda vehicles are renowned as reliable models that are both functional and stylish with artistic and innovative designs that demonstrate a sharp attention to detail. Many Mazda drivers have been eagerly awaiting Mazda’s inevitable release of their very own all-electric vehicle, and that waiting period will soon come to a close with the upcoming release of the Mazda MX-30 EV.
Not all of the specs and details of the MX-30 have been released yet, but there is a lot of information out there about Mazda’s very first EV that will hit the mainstream auto market later this year. Keep reading to learn exactly what you can expect from the Mazda MX-30 EV when it is finally released and becomes available for purchase.
The MX-30 will offer impressive performance on the road. It will come equipped with a single electric motor that delivers the equivalent of 144 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque.
The torque that the MX-30’s motor produces will make this crossover EV more fun to drive and help it maintain speedy acceleration and be more agile on the road.
The 2022 Mazda MX-30 is expected to have a battery range of approximately 124 miles, which means it will be able to travel about 124 miles on a single charge before running out of battery power.
This battery range might not seem very impressive considering the significantly higher ranges of many of the EVs that are currently available on the mainstream auto market, but the MX-30’s quick charging capabilities make up for this crossover SUV’s limited battery range. The MX-30 will be compatible with DC fast-chargers and its battery can charge from 20% to 80% in just 36 minutes when connected to one of these chargers.
To align with its eco-friendly powertrain, the interior of the 2022 Mazda MX-30 will feature unique environmentally-friendly materials inside its cabin.
Among these eco-friendly materials are cork, recycled fabrics, and other renewable materials that help reduce the carbon footprint of the MX-30 even further.
Availability On Select Markets Only
It is worth noting that, when the 2022 Mazda MX-30 becomes available for purchase, it will be available on select markets only—at least at first.
The 2022 Mazda MX-30 is expected to become available for purchase as early as summer 2021, but it will initially only be available in California.
The availability of this crossover EV will most-likely extend to other markets soon after its release as long as it is successful on the North American auto market.
Just the Beginning for Mazda’s EVs
The upcoming release of the Mazda MX-30 is very exciting in and of itself, but what’s even more exciting is the fact that the MX-30 only marks the beginning of what Mazda has in store for the electrified future of their vehicles.
Mazda plans to release multiple electrified models once the MX-30 hits the market and hopefully succeeds on a global scale. This Japanese automaker’s plans for their electrified models include an extended-range plug-in hybrid version of the MX-30 equipped with a rotary engine; a larger plug-in hybrid SUV; and a traditional hybrid crossover SUV.
These planned releases demonstrate Mazda’s holistic approach to the electrification of their vehicles. Mazda understands that not every driver is willing to give up a gas-powered engine for a battery-only EV, so they plan to offer a variety of electrified models ranging from traditional hybrids to full EVs across multiple vehicle segments in order to meet the needs and preferences of as many drivers as possible.
