With its debut appearance as an all-electric subcompact crossover, Mazda has launched the MX-30, with many promises that can push the EV model series ahead of the stiff competition, in some aspects. Being Mazda’s first electric SUV model, 2022 MX-30 secures an important position on American soil even though it has seen many models of its kind, already. The 2022 Mazda MX-30 EV series shares some DNA with its sibling CX-30, which is a regular SUV launched by Mazda a couple of years back with an all-electric powertrain present in its lineup.
As learned from the staff members of the Riverside Mazda dealership a plug-in hybrid version of the same should join the lineup of the 2022 Mazda MX-30, soon.
The 2022 Mazda MX-30 as an all-electric SUV model wears a futuristic sharp look with a roofline, which we usually find in the sports coupes. Al this implies that Mazda has strictly followed the latest aerodynamic theory while implementing its unique creative proportions. As per the most authentic sources, the 2022 Mazda MX-30 EUV series will present it in Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature trims where several additional feature packages will be offered in the lineup.
All-Electric Range and Performance
To make its debut performance memorable and appreciated by the world, Mazda has equipped its 2022 MX-30 models with a pack of all-new 35.5 kWh lithium-ion batteries. This potent battery pack is capable of gushing out 144 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of max torque. This is also set as the standard drivetrain that comes configured with an FWD setup. If the power numbers could not excite you as much, then you need to see the environmental approach Mazda has taken while manufacturing this EUV. Mazda has also confirmed the fact that the 2022 MX-30 models can also be equipped with an optional 50 kWh battery pack that will come with a Level 2 fast charging technology. This optional power plant can charge up the battery to a sufficient 80% within 36 minutes. If you can wait, a plug-in hybrid version can be your choice, which is yet to join the lineup, sometimes sooner.
The 2022 Mazda MX-30 is not bringing the best power output in the universe of the current EVs, which consists of powerful EV performance by models like the Hyundai Kona EV or the Chevrolet Bolt EV. But, for the same reason, Mazda has kept the price affordable and lower than that of its competitors.
Handling and On-Road Performance
The 2022 model year edition of the newly launched Mazda MX-30 is most likely to share the same chassis that we have seen in Mazda’s CX-30 series. This indicates that handling the 2022 Mazda MX-30 will be as much fun as that of the CX-30 models. Hence, we can expect a similar line of driving dynamics to accompany the 2022 Mazda MX-30 models to get the same responses of a crisp steering and a confident movement on the undulated road surfaces gained because of the tight suspensions. It is expected that the 2022 Mazda MX-30 models will prove themselves equally reliable like that of the Mazda CX-30 models, expressed an auto critic we knew through the Mazda dealer Riverside.
