Model Preview

After living by its internal combustion Skyactiv lineup to deliver superior fuel economy without sacrificing performance, Mazda has finally given in and unveiled its first-ever electric vehicle. Here’s what to expect from the 2022 Mazda MX-30.

The 2022 Mazda MX-30 will be a subcompact crossover with proportions similar to the existing CX-30. It’ll boast the slight hood overhang the automaker has become known for, but it’ll use a new, thinner grille. The roofline will be more coupe-like, giving it a slick silhouette, while its backside will feature a set of round taillights to add a futuristic touch. The MX-30’s most unique touch will be its reverse-opening rear doors.

Inside, the 2022 MX-30 will feature a simple yet modern design with many straight lines and minimal drama that’s accented by a floating center console, large infotainment screen, and more. This cabin will also be eco-friendly with its cork door grips and other renewable materials.

Mazda MX-30

Under its hood, the MX-30 will initially come as a full-electric model with 144 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque heading to the front wheels. This electric motor will draw from a 35.5-kWh lithium-ion battery that owners can get to 80% charge in just 36 minutes on a DC fast charger. The MX-30 will offer an EPA-estimated range of 100 miles on a full charge, considerably less than competitors like the Hyundai Kona EV (258 miles).

Safety gear and ratings aren’t determined yet, but Mazda said the MX-30’s “enhanced i-Activsense safety features help cover a wider range of safety scenarios while its high strength body helps protect the space-saving battery and most importantly the MX-30’s occupants.” We expect to see standard automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise at a minimum.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2022 Mazda MX-30 EV is available for order now. Official pricing will start at $34,645 with destination for the base model and $37,655 for the MX-30 with Premium Plus Package.

We expect the MX-30 to qualify for a range of plug-in rebates and incentives such as the federal EV tax credit and state offers like the California Clean Vehicle Rebate. In California, these types of incentives could bring down the cost to buy an MX-30 to less than $24,000.

This compact EV crossover will compete with the Tesla Model Y, Nissan LEAF, and Chevy Bolt EV.
