Mazda hasn’t quoted EPA or manufacturer-estimated range, so it’s difficult to predict how far the MX-30 will travel on a charge and a tank of gas. Since the battery is half the size of competing EVs, we believe it may only go a little over 100 miles on a charge. The vehicle will support DC fast charging, with the ability to recuperate 80% of the battery in 36 minutes. Mazda will partner with ChargePoint in the US market, with more details to come soon.
No other details have emerged on US-specific pricing but it looks like the MX-30’s funky design remained intact. The MX-30 displays a new “Human Modern” design language concept with unique features like freestyle rear-opening back doors, a floating center console, and renewable materials like cork, a nod to Mazda’s history as a cork manufacturing company more than 100 years ago.
