Mazda is set to offer three battery electric vehicles, five hybrids (HEV), and five plug-in Hybrids (PHEV). This independently owned automaker is positioned to provide affordable EVs for the masses.
And they will be releasing the first one, the MX-30, next year in California. Although it is relatively small compared to its competitors (size and driving range), we believe that the incoming Mazda EVs will find their place in the market.
Speaking about the below-par driving range, Mazda reportedly told some newsmen that they are more concerned about the daily needs of the people in city driving. And they also want to make it affordable for their customers.
They also reported that they are thinking more of the environment and trying their possible best to reduce their carbon footprint.
Mazda is set to launch its first all-electric vehicle, which is great news for anyone hoping to lease a Mazda EV. Mazda’s first EV, the MX-30, is an SUV with a fashionable exterior and simple interior and a small 30kWh battery with an estimated driving range expectations of 100miles per charge. It is similarly sized to the current CX-30. The electric SUV is designed with a coupe-like roofline and rear-hinged back doors, propelled by a 143-hp electric motor, which guarantees excellent handling but doesn’t make acceleration easy.
They reported that the MX-30 might look like the CX-30, but it is different. Everything, from the interior to the exterior, is different. The MX-30 will be launched first in California before it will be made available in other states and countries.
As expected, its chassis is excellent, and the steering is composed. Mazda’s MX-30 also comes with a 143-hp electric motor that propels the front wheels. With a predicted top speed of 90mph, its pace isn’t on par with other competitors like Kia’s e-Niro. But it compensates for this with a fun-to-drive nature and perky handling. However, there are speculations of a plug-in hybrid to be introduced later. It will also feature a rotary gasoline engine paired with its electric motor, which guarantees an all-wheel drive.
Although it will be launched in California, Mazda’s other focuses are China, Europe, and Japan. And it’s expected that by 2030, 25% of her car lineup will be EVs.
Aside from building EVs and HEVs, Mazda is also building a platform that can be used for various electric vehicles. They are also using this platform to build their EV ready for next year: MX-30.
And according to Mazda, they will name the platform Skyactiv EV Scalable Architecture. This platform is said to accommodate several vehicles of different types. And it might be leased out to other automakers at a fee so they can build their cars.
