2022 Mazda MX-30 To Get Updates, Compact Battery But Longer Range

Author: |

Mazda has redesigned its MX-30 electric crossover. The MX-30 has an extremely tiny 35.5 kWh battery, which allows it a range of just 200 kilometers in WLTP testing and only 161 kilometers in EPA testing.

While Mazda hasn't increased the size of the little battery, it has improved its usability by reducing the time it takes to charge it.

The redesigned MX-30 is available in three trim levels and features new interior and exterior colors. The MX-30 Prime-Line is the entry-level model, with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, reversing camera, radar cruise control, navigation, and a head-up display standard on all models.


The MX-30 Exclusive-Line adds power seats, keyless entry, and the option of a three-tone color scheme instead of the single-tone one found on the base car. The Makato is at the top of the tree, with synthetic leather, a wiper de-icer, a sunroof, a heated steering wheel, and Bose surround sound tunes.

The charge time for a bonsai battery has been lowered from 36 minutes to 26 minutes due to technical advancements. The MX-30's powertrain sound has been changed, according to the automaker, to help the driver detect the amount of torque created by the motor.

2022 Mazda MX-30

Mazda hasn't revealed any other information regarding the MX-30, but it did confirm in April that a rotary-powered range-extender version of the crossover would be available later this year, with the engine serving purely to charge the battery. The MX-30 2022 is now available for order in Europe.
