Introducing the All-New Mazda MX-30

New Mazda MX-30 | Wantagh, NY

Mazda is making the move to electrify its lineup, and it all starts with the upcoming Mazda MX-30. The Mazda MX-30 battery-electric vehicle will launch in the fall of this year in California before rolling out more widely next year, and it will be joined by a plug-in hybrid that brings an iconic piece of Mazda history into the world of tomorrow.

According to President of Mazda North American Operations Jeff Guyton, the upcoming Mazda MX-30 will be the first phase of its adaptation to a changing world. Among the electrified models that will follow are “a series plug-in hybrid with a rotary generator for the Mazda MX-30, a plug-in hybrid for our new large platform, and a traditional hybrid for our new American-made crossover.”

It’s been confirmed that the Mazda MX-30 plug-in hybrid EV will release sometime next year, and it will likely be one of the next new vehicles to appear in the showroom at Wantagh Mazda in Wantagh, New York. By using a rotary generator to charge the battery, Mazda recalls the classic Wankel engine that powered driver favorites like the Mazda RX-7 and Mazda RX-8.

“The rotary generator will mark the return of our unique rotary powertrain,” Guyton said. “This technology is being engineered for nearly silent operation and will replenish the battery rather than drive the wheels. As a result, the Mazda MX-30 will always drive like the engaging EV that it is, but with freedom to charge from the wall or on the go.”

If you’re interested in going green, stay tuned. It sounds like Mazda has a lot of big plans on the horizon, and you’ll find the results right here at Wantagh Mazda in Wantagh, New York.

Here’s the Scoop on the Mazda MX-30 Battery Pack

If you’re in the market for an eco-friendly vehicle, check out the upcoming Mazda MX-30. Its battery pack will boast the lowest lifetime carbon footprint possible, according to Christian Schultze, the head of research and development at Mazda Europe.

It achieves this by using a smaller battery pack, which takes fewer resources to produce, and consumes less electricity when it’s being charged. For example, long-range batteries require more rare earth metals to manufacture, making them both expensive to replace and less sustainable to produce.

While a smaller battery pack results in a shorter driving range, the MX-30 delivers plenty of power to get you around town. It offers an estimated 130 miles of range, which is more than sufficient for the average driver’s daily commute. If you’re craving more range, Mazda is rumored to be crafting an internal-combustion-powered range extender that should help the Mazda MX-30 stay on the road even longer.

The Mazda MX-30 is expected to enter production in late 2020, although no U.S. release date has been confirmed yet. Only time will tell if we’ll see this innovative EV stateside anytime soon.
