2020 Mazda MX-30: First EV has poor range, odd coupe SUV design

The 2020 Mazda MX-30 is the company’s first EV, and it has an odd coupe SUV body, smallish driving range, nice interior, and an MX badge.

Mazda says it designed the MX-30 around the philosophy of “less is more”. It has a compact body, but rear seat access is made easier by rear suicide doors.

The 35.5kWh battery has a WLTP driving range of around 200km (125mi). Maximum AC charging input is 6.6kW.

The interior has eco friendly material including vegan leather and cork for the floating center console. Front suspension is by Macpherson strut, and there’s a torsion beam axle at the rear.

The MX-30 goes on sale in Europe from the middle of 2020, and in the UK from 2021.
