The Mazda MX-30 is the Japanese carmaker's first foray into the electric vehicle market and is tailored to short city commutes and day-to-day motoring. It was first revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2019. Offering a 33.5kWh battery that provides a range of 124 miles, the MX-30 stands out for its unique design features, including rear-hinged 'freestyle' doors and the use of sustainable materials in the cabin.


Mazda MX-30 updates and facelifts

In a growing EV market, the MX-30 faces competition from the likes of the Kia Soul EV, Vauxhall Mokka-e, and Hyundai Kona Electric. While these rivals offer larger batteries and longer driving ranges, Mazda has taken a deliberately different approach that aligns with its broader environmental philosophy. By opting for a smaller battery, the MX-30 aims to minimise its lifetime CO2 emissions, making it a more sustainable choice compared to equivalent models.

Another advantage of the MX-30 is its competitive pricing. Positioned as an accessible entry point into the electric SUV segment, it represents an appealing package for those looking to make the transition to electric driving without breaking the bank. The Mazda MX-30 is also available in multiple configurations to suit various driving needs.

In addition to the pure electric model, Mazda also offers a plug-in hybrid variant, known as the R-EV. This model is particularly impressive, boasting a range of up to 400 miles. This extended range is made possible by the innovative combination of a rotary engine and an electric motor, providing you with the best of both worlds in terms of performance and efficiency.

The Mazda MX-30 saw a subtle update with its 2022 refresh. This brought minor technical revisions and colour scheme alterations to keep the model current, fine-tuning its aesthetics and performance.


Practicality and style of the car

The Mazda MX-30 impresses with its practicality, especially when it comes to boot space. Offering a generous 366 litres, it is more than adequate for a couple of medium-sized suitcases and all your shopping needs. Even in the higher-specification models, which are equipped with the BOSE sound system's amplifier, the boot capacity remains competitive at 332 litres. That’s more than you'll find in rivals like the Vauxhall Mokka-e (310 litres) or the Kia Soul EV (315 litres).

If you need to increase cargo space, the rear seats offer a 60/40 split and can be folded down to expand capacity to up to 1,171 litres. This creates a nearly flat load area that is perfect for accommodating longer items. An added feature relates to the charging cables provided with the model. These can be neatly tucked under the boot floor, ensuring they don't interfere with the boot space on offer.


Running costs

The Mazda MX-30 is a cost-effective option for those looking to transition from petrol or diesel vehicles. Not only does it offer the advantage of lower running costs, but it also comes with tax benefits — the MX-30 enjoys a zero Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) until 2025 — and exemption from ULEZ and congestion charges.

Insurance for the MX-30 is reasonable compared with other electric vehicles, with the model sitting in groups 19 to 23 (out of 50). The Vauxhall Mokka-e sits in groups 21 to 23 and the Hyundai Kona Electric occupies groups 20 to 27.


How a used Mazda MX-30 drives

This electric crossover comes equipped with an e-Skyactiv powertrain that delivers 143bhp and maximum torque of 271Nm, resulting in a 0-62mph acceleration time of 9.7 seconds. The R-EV version features a more powerful 168bhp electric motor, cutting the 0-62mph time to 9.1 seconds.

Range is a crucial factor for any electric vehicle, and while the MX-30 only offers an official range of 124 miles, the smaller battery size has its advantages. Unlike the Nissan LEAF, which takes about 40 minutes to charge from 0-80%, the MX-30 accomplishes the same in under 30 minutes.

Home charging from 0-100% via a 7.4kW wall box will take approximately six hours. The model’s regenerative braking system can also be adjusted via steering wheel paddles, allowing you to choose the level of regenerative braking you prefer.


Features you can expect in a Mazda MX-30

Interior

The interior of the Mazda MX-30 makes extensive use of eco-friendly materials, including cork and recycled plastic bottles for the armrests. The cork is not only sustainable but also pays homage to Mazda's origins as the Toyo Kogyo cork company. This blend of materials adds a unique touch to the cabin, which is further elevated by the sporty 'Kodo' design theme that Mazda has become known for.

The front seats are firm yet supportive, and the driving position is excellent. The driver and front passenger have plenty of head and legroom, while the rear is best suited to children and teens. Storage includes a glove box, a pair of lidded cubbies next to the front armrest, and door pockets that can each hold a 500ml water bottle.

Helping to keep you comfy on the road is a climate control system, which can be pre-conditioned via the MyMazda app while the car is plugged in to charge. The MX-30 is also well-insulated from external noise, making for a quiet and calming driving experience.


Technology

The Mazda MX-30 is equipped with a state-of-the-art infotainment system which features a sleek 8.8-inch screen. This is strategically mounted on the centre console for easy visibility and access. Unlike traditional touchscreen systems, the MX-30 opts for a more tactile approach by incorporating a rotary dial for operation. This makes it effortless to scroll through menus, select options, or adjust settings without taking your eyes off the road.

This engaging infotainment system is not just about ease of use; it's also about connectivity. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come as standard features, allowing for seamless integration of your smartphone. You can manage calls, send messages, or stream your favourite playlists.

In addition to the primary infotainment system, the Mazda MX-30 features a separate 7-inch touchscreen located in the centre of the dashboard. This is dedicated exclusively to managing the vehicle's heating and ventilation systems. For those who are passionate about sound quality, the high specification trims come equipped with a BOSE 12-speaker surround sound system that delivers crisp, clear, and immersive audio.


Safety

The Mazda MX-30 sets a high standard when it comes to safety, boasting a comprehensive suite of safety features. It was awarded a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, due to its robust design and advanced safety technologies. Its adult occupant protection scored an impressive 91%, with child occupant protection scoring 87%. There are ISOFIX points on the outer rear seats for safely securing child seats.

The vehicle is equipped with smart brake support that not only helps prevent vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle collisions, but also includes a turn-across-traffic function for added safety. Additional collision avoidance features include autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection and driver attention alert, which collectively contribute to on-road peace of mind.

The vehicle also comes as standard with lane-keep assist, lane departure warning, and emergency lane-keeping to ensure that you stay on course. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are also included. Front cross-traffic alert is available in the range-topping GT Sport Tech model and is part of Mazda's i-Activsense suite of active safety technologies, designed to keep both you and your passengers well protected.
