Mazda’s first-ever electric vehicle is now available to Australian consumers for pre-orders with pricing and specification confirmed.
The manufacturer has promised an impressive list of standard features alongside a five-star 2020 ANCAP safety rating for its Mazda MX-30 Electric to be sold and serviced through a comprehensive network of 100 Mazda dealers across Australia.
Maximum driving range is rated at 200km on the WLTP cycle which remains on the low side compared with other models – though for certain fleets running small trips it could have a valued place.
“The first-ever MX-30 Electric is a bold statement for the brand as Mazda enters its second century of operations,” said Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi.
“We have welcomed the Mazda MX-30 M Hybrid to the Australian market, where it has been welcomed and highly praised for its cutting-edge design, intelligent materials and strong safety attributes.
To be among the first to own a Mazda MX-30 Electric, customers are encouraged to register their pre-order on mazda.com.au to access the initial release of 100 models with deliveries of MX-30 Electric set to start in August.
Mazda MX-30 Electric will be available in top-specification Astina grade and is priced from $65,490. Comprehensively equipped, it boasts 18-inch alloy wheels, 12-speaker Bose premium sound system, windscreen heads up display, 360-degree camera, Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function and an exhaustive suite of safety tech that includes 10 airbags and front cross-traffic support.
“The MX-30 Electric is Mazda’s first-ever pure electric vehicle, building on the benefits of the M Hybrid to deliver a zero emissions driving experience.
“It also proves that you can have a sustainable drive while retaining the fun behind the wheel and unique driver connection that Mazda is renowned for,” he said.
