The launch of any completely new vehicle from a major automaker is always something of an event, but the launch of the 2022 Mazda MX-30 EV is even more significant as it’s the first all-electric Mazda to go on sale here in America. There are plenty of ways you can get around or do the daily commute from Tuscaloosa to Birmingham, but none are as quiet, emissions-free, and great for the environment as doing it in an electric vehicle like the Mazda MX-30 EV.
There’s a decidedly futuristic and sporty feel to the MX-30 EV with its sloping roof and rear-hinged doors but it also sits nicely into the existing family of Mazda crossovers too. The front fascia is one area that’s unique to this model which sets it MX-30 EV apart from other Mazda models, but nothing about the way the MX-30 EV looks is going to scare the horses in any way.
As is fairly common in these relatively early days of fully electric mobility, there are just two trim levels to choose between with the 2022 MX-30 EV, which are the entry-level MX-30 EV GS and the top-of-the-range GT model. Both versions come generously equipped with standard features and both share the same electric powertrain.
At least for the moment, whenever you say to someone that you own or you are thinking of buying an electric vehicle the first topic of conversation will be the electric powertrain. The 2022 Mazda MX-30 EV has a system that utilizes a 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor that gives the MX-30 EV some 143 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque to play with. On the face of things, these may sound like relatively modest numbers, but electric motors drive and feel very differently from internal combustion engines and the torque is delivered almost instantly with an EV.
Driving range on a full charge of the battery is also a popular topic of electric vehicle conversation. The MX-30 EV has a range of approximately 100 miles but you can recharge the battery back up to 80 percent of its full capacity in just over half an hour by using a DC fast charger. If you find yourself using a 240-volt Level 2 charger instead, that 80 percent charge will take you somewhere in the region of 2 hours and 50 minutes to achieve, and if you’re recharging from a regular Level 1 120-volt outlet you’ll probably have to charge it through the night.
The most affordable version of the Mazda MX-30 comes with standard 18-inch alloy wheels, tire pressure monitors, an 8-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, navigation, air conditioning, push-button start, advanced keyless entry, LED lights, heated front seats, and even a windshield-projected color Active Driving Display. The all-important infotainment is very well taken care of with a standard 8.8-inch touchscreen system that’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible.
If you’re happy to pay a little more for the MX-30 EV GT trim level you’ll be able to enjoy extra features such as a premium Bose 12-speaker sound system, HomeLink wireless control system, two-tone imitation leather and cloth-trimmed upholstery, a driver’s seat that features 10-way power adjustment, Front Cross Traffic Alert, a 360° View Monitor system and plenty more.
The 2022 Mazda MX-30 EV is a very subtle and user-friendly introduction to the world of full-electric driving. In some ways, it’s just what you would expect from a modern compact crossover SUV, but the electric powertrain is obviously the big difference.
