Mazda MX-30 Owner's Manuals
The Mazda MX-30 is a pleasant electric vehicle in many ways. It has a nice interior and intricate exterior, it’s equipped with a lot of modern technology, and it’s much more fun to drive than many of its competitors. So why is it so far down the rankings with many car enthusiasts? Because the Mazda MX-30 is a small, slow and rather expensive electric car with only 114 miles of range.
The 2022 Mazda MX-30 is a strong bid for success and a return to its former popularity. Until now, Mazda has never had an all-electric vehicle on the market. Now the MX-30 represents the brand’s first step into the world of electric vehicles and what the company calls its “multi-decision electrification strategy”. The MX-30 is a stylish introduction to Mazda’s upcoming lineup of electric vehicles, with sales beginning in California in fall 2021 with expansion into other markets in 2022.
As for the new electric cars, the MX-30, based on the Mazda CX-30 small SUV, offers modest specs. Its electric motor produces 143 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque, making it significantly less powerful than competing electric cars. The Chevrolet Bolt, for example, develops 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque.
The vehicle has some pluses. Like most Mazda’s these days, the MX-30 has a stylish interior and excellent handling. The luggage compartment is decent, too.
