NEXT STAGE: New in 2020
The Mazda MX-30, the automaker's first mass-market electric vehicle, debuted at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. The vehicle lacks a center pillar between the front and rear doors, which swing opposite of each other. The rear doors are only half doors, similar to those in the discontinued RX-8 sports car. The MX-30, slated for sale in Europe and Japan in summer 2020, uses a relatively small 35.5-kWh lithium ion battery and 105-kW electric motor, indicating a rather modest range.
But Mazda is hinting that a hybrid version using a rotary engine may be down the road. A hybrid version that taps an internal-combustion engine as a range extender could broaden appeal in other markets where drivers log longer distances, such as the U.S., by giving the vehicle a wider area of operation.
It remains unclear if and when the vehicle will arrive in the U.S.
