The world’s first mass-production electric Mazda debuted at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. Dubbed the Mazda MX-30, this spacious new crossover builds upon the groundwork laid by the upcoming 2020 Mazda CX-30. Here’s an inside-and-out look at this innovative new EV.

On the outside, it’s easy to see the DNA of the Mazda MX-30. Its sports-coupe good looks give it a high-tech feel. Notice the drastically sloped C-pillar, and how the B-pillar smoothly flows into the rear door. Combine that with a thin, elegant grille, and you’ve got one clean looking driving machine.

Known Details

You can access the cabin through a pair of freestyle doors. This simple switch makes a huge difference — combined with the streamlined design, the cabin boasts an open, airy feeling. Plus, the Mazda MX-30 really earns its eco-friendly street cred thanks to a wealth of sustainable and recycled materials in its cabin. For instance, you’ll find a sleek dashboard made from cork and fabric derived from recycled material.

So far, Mazda hasn’t revealed much about the new vehicle’s powertrain. We know that it’ll boast a 33.5-kWh lithium-ion battery, but nothing has been said about its range estimates or power specs. It will also utilize e–Skyactiv technology, which promises to deliver thrilling driving dynamics and responsive performance alongside excellent efficiency. Further, it’s highly likely that the Mazda MX-30 will receive the much-rumored rotary engine-based range extender at some point in the future.

Currently, the automaker is taking orders for the Mazda MX-30. However, these orders are limited to European buyers. That said, it’s highly likely that the new model will soon be available to American buyers.
