Japan-based Auto Manufacturer Mazda has finally made it’s entry to the electric cars with the launch of its first all-electric MX-30 Crossover at the Tokyo Motor Show 2019. But the wait was worth waiting for it, the MX-30 Crossover features the eye-catching look with freestyle doors.
Mazda MX-30 specifications:
Mazda MX-30 has Piller-less freestyle doors with custom-designed hinges that allow the front doors to open to 82° and rear doors to open to 80° which the company says makes getting on and off the car easier even it provides easier access for strollers and wheelchairs.
It features an e-SKYACTIV power train with a 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery that generates 131 bhp as reported by AutoCar and it is expected that it can provide a range of up to 131 miles (210 kilometers). The company told AutoCar that Mazda chose to use a smaller battery because it wants to reduce emissions over the total lifecycle of the car and believes it will be used as a second car by some households.
Mazda has not released any range, top speed, or acceleration number for the car but has confirmed that the car will not be available in any higher battery pack variant.
Internally, it features a 7-inch touchscreen display that has been placed just in front of the car’s gear shifter the touchscreen display allows users to control the aircon of the car. The interior of the car is built by using recycled material to keep the car environment-friendly and the console of the car is built with Heritage Cork.
Mazda has plans to start taking pre-orders for the MX-30 from next summer and expects that the car will be shipped in Japan by the second half of 2020, might ship in Europe in the year 2021 and it is also destined to reach the US in 2022 but the prices have not been released.
AutoCar expects that the price of the car could start less than £30,000 (around $38,500).
