The upcoming 2022 Mazda MX-30, the brand's first-ever all-electric vehicle, is now the lowest-cost lease in their lineup. The company just announced the MX-30's current lease deal of $279 a month for 36 months, with $2,999 due at signing in the state of California. The offer is set to end on November 1st.

Even with its MSRP of $34,645, it just edges out the CX-30 for affordability. Comparatively, MX-30 EV carries an effective monthly cost of just $362 to the CX-30's $366. This might not amount to much when you're comparing apples to apples, but the all-new MX-30 is an electric vehicle, which gives it an advantage when it comes to tax credits and clean energy rebates.

The subcompact crossover is arriving later this fall but will only be available in California to start. Limiting availability to the Golden State first could be a smart move by Mazda – the EV will be an attractive offer for some who are looking to a greener future.

The electric vehicle is likely to be able to save qualified buyers up to $11,000 in combined plug-in deals. The Federal EV Tax Credit is good for $7,500, while in California, the Clean Vehicle Rebate (CVRP) can save you $2,000 and the Clean Fuel Reward gets you a rebate of $1,500.

In the same class as the 2022 Hyundai Kona Electric, and Kia Niro EV, the Mazda MX-30 gets far less range – only 100 miles a charge. The Kona Electric gets 258 miles of range, while the Niro EV gets 239 miles. Both vehicles come in at a lower effective cost to lease than the Mazda but lack the upscaled styling we expect from the MX-30. We expect more deals after the EV hits the market later this year.

After its launch in CA, the Mazda MX-30 should arrive in other states next year, with a Plug-in Hybrid version coming in 2023.
