2020 Mazda MX-30 goes official with a 35.5 kWh battery and starting price of €33,990Mazda goes electric. No doubt about that. It has already announced its plans to offer an electrified version of each of its model line-ups by 2030. Electrified means hybrid, PHEV or BEV. Either way, the vehicles will be based on Mazda's e-Skyactiv platform created especially for vehicles with an electric powertrain.

The first model is the 2020 Mazda MX-30. The manufacturer has chosen a four-door design without a pillar for the freestyle doors. The front ones open at 82 degrees and the rear ones - at 80 degrees so there's ample space for entry and exit. The 6.6 kW onboard charger is positioned in the right-rear end. The DC fast charging happens via a Type-2 CCS connector for Europe or CHAdeMO in Japan. The model packs a 35.5 kWh battery with prismatic cells. That's good for 200 km of WLTP range (subject to homologation upon launch). Mazda did not yet provide official specs for the motor but the prototype of the MX-30 has a 105 kW motor with 264 Nm of torque.

The interior of the 2020 Mazda MX-30 is adorned with recycled and environment-friendly materials. For example, the doors are made of recycled PET bottles, the center console uses cork harvested from the bark of trees without felling, etc. The dashboard has a clean and minimalistic style that's quite appealing. The driver's screen pop out from it behind the wheel. There's another screen with a 7-inch diagonal size that sits below the dashboard on the center console. It is accompanied by a rotary knob for operating with the MZD Connect infotainment system. The storage compartment houses a 2.5A USB port and an AC outlet with up to 150 W of power.

In terms of technologies, the 2020 Mazda MX-30 will arrive with G-Vectoring Control, e-GVC Plus, Smart Brake Support, Turn Across Traffic, Road Keep Assist, Blind Spot Assist. Most of those depend on the 24GHz millimetre wave radar and a forward-facing camera.

Currently, reservations in Europe are open. Mazda offers only an exclusive special edition which is available only during the reservation phase for online registrations. You can choose from two high-quality interiors. The vehicle will be equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels and 215/55/R18 tires, heated front seats, electronically adjustable seats (8-way for the driver with lumbar support), matrix LED light system with light signature, the Mazda Connect System (Navigation System, Apple Carplay and Android Auto), advanced head-up display, extensive i-Activsense safety systems such as the emergency brake assistant with pedestrian detection, lane change assistant, or parking aid.

The expected price of the Mazda MX-30 First Edition for pre-sale launch in March 2020 is € 33,990. The main 2020 Mazda MX-30 specifications are as follows:
