Mazda's new MX-30 electric vehicle (EV)

Mazda has revealed the pricing and specification details of its first fully-electric vehicle (EV) – the MX-30 crossover.

The Japanese carmaker’s full range of MX-30s will arrive in UK dealerships next March with prices starting from £25,545 (after Government’s plug-in car grant) and the promise of a 124-mile from its 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

Details of the £27,495 (with ULEV grant) MX-30 First Edition – limited to 500 units in 2021 – were revealed as retailers opened order books for the flagship EV model back in March, but Mazda has now revealed full trim details of a range comprising of SE-L Lux, Sport Lux and GT Sport Tech trim levels.

Jeremy Thomson Mazda UKMazda Motors UK managing director, Jeremy Thomson, described the MX-30 as a “stand out addition to the rapidly evolving EV marketplace”, adding: “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.”

He said: “With the announcement of pricing and specification of the three-model UK MX-30 line up, our customers and dealers can see that next year we will have a well-equipped EV range that forms part of an electrification strategy that has already seen Mazda M Hybrid, mild hybrid fitted as standard to the Mazda3, Mazda CX-30 and manual Mazda2s.

“And over the coming months across our digital platforms and our dealer network we will have a range of opportunities for potential customers to get familiar with the MX-30, ranging from answering their questions, to seeing the car and even opportunities for early test drives.”

Each MX-30 comes as standard with a Type 2 AC charging cable and a socket for 50kW rapid charging, which can deliver an 80% battery charge in 36 minutes.

The £25,545 (after ULEV grant) Mazda MX-30 SE-L Lux trim is marked out by 18-inch alloy wheels, black door mirrors and a black grille and comes with a single tone paint design.

The £27,545 (after ULEV grant) MX-30 Sport Lux is expected to be the range’s best seller and adds: electrically-adjustable seats with lumber support and smart keyless entry and an optional three-tone paint design.

The GT Sport Tech MX-30 equipment list also adds a front wiper de-icer, sunroof, a heated steering wheel, a 12-speaker Bose surround sound system and a 360-degree reversing camera.

Mazda has developed a range of sustainable cabin materials for use in its first-ever pure EV.

In what it refers to as “a nod to Mazda’s founding as the Toyo Kogyo Cork Company in 1920”, the MX-30 features cork lined centre console trays and inner side door handles.
