Mazda unveiled their first all-electric vehicle, the MX-30, late last year at the Tokyo Motor Show.
In a press release this week, the automaker has announced it has officially begun production at it’s Ujina plant No.1 in Hiroshima, Japan.
The MX-30 will feature a 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery and a powertrain delivering 142hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. Range will be approximately 210km for the European model (WLTP standard), which is always higher than the North American EPA standard, so expect a sub-200km once it reaches Canada.
It will be capable of AC charging at up to 6.6kW, comparable to most EVs. It will also support DC fast charging at up to 50kW (CHAdeMO or CCS).
The MX-30 is available for order now in European markets, with the first deliveries expected later this year. Unfortunately no Canadian pricing or availability has been announced by Mazda.
