Mazda sold only 8 MX-30s in July 2022

Mazda MX-30

The Mazda MX-30 was released to middling reviews, and it is telling in its sales figures. The EV sold a total of 8 units in July 2022 in North America. As a whole, Mazda sold 23,393 in its North American operation.

Mazda’s sales for July were a 28.5 percent decrease from the figures for July 2021. It sold 166,195 since the beginning of 2022, which leaves it 25.1 percent worse than last year.

The electric Mazda MX-30 is the most noticeable, selling significantly less than the 23 units it moved in June.

It is no surprise for people that have seen the car’s spec sheet. Despite having an attractive appearance, the MX-30 offers only a 100-mile driving range, far lower than what many EV drivers expect from their cars. The car is underpowered and posts an underwhelming 0 to 60 mph acceleration time.

While the electric MX-30 is a hard sell, for Mazda, the carbon-fuel-powered CX-30 that it is based on had its best sales in any month of July, selling 6,040 units. Sales of the EV have never been impressive. During its first month on the market in North America, it sold only 55 units. In May, buyers snapped up 35 units.
