This first-ever Mazda EV might be available in 4 or 5 trim levels. We are assuming that the MX-30 will follow other Mazda SUV trims and will come with Select, Preferred, Premium, Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, and/or Signature packages but Mazda USA hasn't confirmed that information yet. There also aren't any details about what will be included with each trim level as far as upgraded technology or added convenience features.

The MX-30 provides a unique driving experience designed for pure driving enjoyment in any situation. Mazda states the MX-30 incorporates a Mazda-unique Jinba-ittai driving performance. The automaker further stated that the Mazda MX-30 will have one electric motor mounted under the SUV's hood. That means it will only come as a front-wheel-drive model but that doesn't mean it won't have driving modes for snowy or other hazardous weather conditions. The Mazda MX-30 powertrain has been dubbed with the name e-SKYTACTIV. We don't know the expected horsepower or torque yet, but expect there will be plenty of acceleration with this Mazda electric model.

The EV battery cell is prismatic with a total voltage of 355v and total electric power (battery capacity) of 35.5kWh. The electric range of the MX-30 is a big mystery, but we assume it will be around 250 miles in order to remain competitive with other electric models.

The MX-30 has a cabin filled with sustainable and natural materials. We don't know how much cargo space to anticipate with the new Mazda EV yet, but if it is comparable to the CX-3, then there should be plenty of space for shopping. There is a digital panel for the climate controls, but also a secondary display for the infotainment features.

2021 Mazda MX-30 Specifications

The Mazda MX-30 looks to be the same size as the CX-3 and CX-30 crossovers. With the MX terminology, however, we anticipate that it will be more performance-focused but it could signal an electric crossover that is built on the MX-5 or at least inspired by the MX-5.
