All-Electric Mazda MX-30 Debuts For Just RM198,780
Malaysian EV enthusiasts will be happy to learn that the new Mazda MX-30 is priced well.
The Mazda brand may be a little behind the competition when it comes to electrification, but now they’ve beaten Toyota, Honda, Subaru and many other rivals with the introduction of an all-electric vehicle in Malaysia.
The Mazda MX-30 may not have stupendous range at just 199KM on a full charge. However, it is priced very well for what it is at just RM198,780 fully-imported from Japan.
For now, Bermaz are only introducing one specification of the Mazda MX-30 in Malaysia for now, the EV High trim level. A EV Mid trim level will be available later on as indicated in the leaked brochure..
The Mazda MX-30 is powered by a single 143hp electric motor with 271Nm of torque being sent to the front wheels. A refrigerant cooled 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery gives it its 199km range. AC Charging is done with a Type 2 plug and DC Fast Charging uses the CCS2 interface. DC Fast Charging of up to 40 kW is supported to recover usable range (80% battery) in 36 minutes.
e-GVC Plus ensures the MX-30 drives like a true Mazda while an electronic shifter and multi-function commander knob, and 8.8″ Mazda Connect display give the driver his/her interface. The MX-30 comes with a 360-degree view monitor, power adjustable seats with 2-position memory function and 12-speaker Bose sound system.
This Mazda MX-30 comes with i-Activsense ADAS, meaning that features such as Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Driver Attention Alert with Driver Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist, and more come as standard. This variant also comes with Adaptive LED Headlights, Front Cross Traffic Alert, as well as Cruising and Traffic Support features.
The Mazda MX-30 will be available in five colours, three of which are dual tone colours with contrasting roofs either in black or in silver.
It is available to book at the Mazda flagship centre in Glenmarie. The vehicle comes with a 5-year manufacturer warranty and an 8-year/160,000km battery warranty. It does not come with a free home charger (though Bermaz will advise on the appropriate charger to install for each customer), Deliveries of the Mazda MX-30 to Malaysian customers who book now are anticipated to be in Q4 2022, assuming no supply delays. There are no CKD plans for the MX-30. For now, the MX-30 can only be serviced/repaired at the Glenmarie HQ and at service centres located in Penang and Johor Bahru. Other dealers will provide 24 hour roadside assistance to all customers nationwide.
