Introduction

What Car? says...

It's fair to say that the Mazda MX-30 electric SUV is quite a curious car, and it doesn't really fit into any of the traditional categories we're used to talking about.

Why? Well, it has the 4.4-metre footprint of a family SUV, but take a closer look and you'll see that its styling is more like that of a coupé SUV. In other words, it sacrifices everyday practicality for a suave, tumbling rear roofline and rear-hinged back doors (those, by the way, are a throwback to the old Mazda RX-8 sports car).

FAQs

  • You can consider the MX-30 an electric SUV due to its elevated driving position and tall stature, but it doesn’t come with the option of four-wheel drive. Read more here

  • Not particularly fast when compared with other electric cars. It’ll still beat many traditional petrol or diesel SUVs away from the lights, though, because of the instant power available from its electric motor. Read more here

  • Pricing for the Mazda MX-30 starts at around the same price as the All-Electric Fiat 500 and undercuts the cheapest Honda e by a considerable margin. The MG4 does cost a lot less, though. Read more here

  • For the moment, the MX-30 is just a battery electric vehicle. However, it will be gaining a range-extender option soon, with a small petrol engine that will run to top up the batteries and allow you to tackle longer trips. Read more here

  • Only if you go for one of the top two trims (mid-range Exclusive-Line or top-of-the-range Makoto). Read more here
