The award-winning Mazda MX-30 is back with an all-new powertrain system that will turn drivers into life-long fans. Introducing the MX-30 R-EV; the next step in compact SUV technology through the brilliant unity of rotary engine and electric motor. This Plug-In Hybrid takes a different approach to exceeding our expectations in that the MX-30 R-EV is driven entirely by the electric motor, with its charging assisted by the rotary petrol engine.
This simple yet intuitive change to how this PHEV is designed truly gives you the best of both worlds. From the smooth and linear acceleration offered by EVs to the reliably powerful and efficient performance brought by petrol motors, the MX-30 R-EV builds upon its predecessors by focusing on what you, the driver, crave. Pure, zero-emission EV driving is at the press of a button, offering up to 53 miles of range which will cover your daily commutes with ease.
Looking for a longer trip? The MX-30 R-EV shines here through a symbiosis of the electric motor and rotary engine. Range anxiety became a thing of the past in the previous models, but here, it’s now forgotten. Up to 400 miles of driving range is available in the R-EV, where the rotary engine acts as an onboard generator to recharge the battery. This incredible range is partly due to the unique, lightweight design of the rotary engine.
Of course, in true Mazda fashion, the handling and design of this already-loved model tick all our boxes and then some. The unique geometric features of the MX-30 come to life through slim, eye-like LED headlights which sense when dusk is approaching. Freestyle doors hinge on opposite ends of the R-EVs body, providing ample space for the whole family to enter. Safety is not compromised on this practical design either, featuring high strength, shock-absorbing steel door framing.
Combining the benefits of a lightweight structure, vibration-free driving, and a fuel economy of up to 282.5mpg, this one-of-a-kind crossover will quickly drive to the top of your watch list. The running costs of the MX-30 R-EV are naturally going to be far smaller than regular combustion vehicles. Attractive upfront prices with reliably long-term guarantees, realistic and manageable monthly payments, government grants, and minimal running costs are but a few persuasive reasons why the MX-30 R-EV will save you big as you fall in love over the long run.
With the option to fully customise your MX-30 R-EV, you can add a flair of individuality to this amazing drive. A personal touch can be made through a pallet of striking exterior colours, alloy wheels and additional accessories. The design of the interior prioritises a driver-centric experience. A toggle-controlled driver display allows you to remain in touch with the R-EV’s drive, while a start/button deepens the easy driving feel. From connective services to Apple CarPlay to steering wheel controls, you can quickly turn the R-EV interior into your personal space.
Passenger-focused engineering hasn’t been diminished either, with a 220V ac power plug in the rear and USB charging ports in the front. This small but important addition turns the journey, not just the destination, into a highlight. The sofa-like rear seating is raised to give passengers a more open view through the large windows, providing comfort and safety in excess.
Further personalisation of the MX-30 R-EV is found in the multiple trim levels available, each gaining additional features which may be exactly what you’re looking for. The entry-level is the Prime-Line, coming with iActivsense safety features, climate control and parking assistance as standard. Next up is the Exclusive-Line, additionally gaining heated seating that is electrically adjustable. Finally, the high-spec model is the Makoto, featuring advanced speaker systems and additional driving safety and parking systems. To celebrate the new release of the rotary engine, a limited-edition model called the Edition R is available, featuring slick, gloss black accents, bespoke materials, and engravings.
