2023 Mazda MX-30 Preview & Release Date

Model Preview

The Mazda MX-30 will gain a plug-in hybrid variant for the 2023 model year. Although Mazda hasn't released MX-30 PHEV specs or pricing, we do know it will complement the 2022 MX-30 EV set to arrive this fall. When it comes to the MX-30 plug-in's range, we're not particularly optimistic after learning that the EV will have a range of just 100 miles.

In the U.S., the MX-30 PHEV will be the brand's first plug-in hybrid. Mazda says that the plug-in hybrid "combines all the benefits of Mazda's electrification technology with a rotary generator to charge the battery." While this doesn't exactly mark the triumphant return of Mazda's rotary engines, it is a significant nod to the brand's old roots.

For now, Mazda says the MX-30 plug-in hybrid is expected in 2022. By that point, EV buyers will likely have had a chance to see the EV, which has a release date this fall for sale in California only. Next year, the company plans to expand sales to more states, although it's unclear just how easy it will be to buy an MX-30 in the rest of the U.S.

We look forward to knowing more about how the MX-30 PHEV will stand in terms of pricing relative to the EV. That's because EVs are eligible for a larger tax credit, as well as better state incentives like the California Clean Vehicle Rebate and Clean Vehicle Reward. In the case of the MX-30 EV, these can help lower its cost to less than $24,000.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
