HIROSHIMA: Mazda has started production of the MX-30, the company's first all-electric vehicle, at Ujina plant No. 1 in Hiroshima, Japan.

The new MX-30 five-seater SUV has a front-wheel-drive powertrain that combines a 107kW (145ps) AC synchronous electric motor with a 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery, providing a driving range of 200km (WLTP combined).

The battery can be charged to 80% within 40 minutes using DC rapid charging.

The MX-30 EV (electric vehicle) uses Mazda's award-winning Kodo design philosophy, and features centre-pillarless freestyle doors and a framed glasshouse that hint at the open, spacious feeling of the cabin.

The interior features a driver-centric cockpit, a floating centre console, Mazda's first seven-inch touch-screen air-conditioning panel, and a range of new, environmentally friendly materials such as cork and door trim fabric incorporating fibres from recycled plastic bottles.

Standard equipment includes a windscreen projecting head-up display, 8-way electric adjustable drivers’ seat, a colour 7-inch TFT dial display, a leather wrapped steering wheel and chrome trim accents.

The MX-30 will arrive in the UK in early 2021.
