At the Tokyo Motor Show the MX-30 was unveiled with a 35.5 kWh battery and an electric motor capable of producing 142 horsepower (105 kW) and 192 lb-ft (264 Nm) of torque.

The range is expected to be 130 miles (~210km) for the European model, which is likely using the WLTP testing standard. Which means the EPA range could be a bit lower at around 120 miles (~193km).

120-130 miles may not seem like a lot at first glance but I know it’ll be more than enough for my daily commute. However, it might not enough be for others.

With that being said, what does everyone else think about the range?

Not god at all for the money they would ask if true about £30.000. Most of the more established AV makers got their upcoming models with 200 miles and over range on single charge. Saying that those models are smaller city cars and not SUVs but for me with the AV the range covered on single charge is most important and the maker with longest range for around that amount of money will take my money next Year

The MX-30's official range of 130 miles between charges is far less than that achieved by rivals; the Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia e-Niro are both proven to be capable of more than 250 miles in real-world conditions.

17,9kWh/100km out of 4.902 Kilometers driving.
1/4 normal Roads - 3/4 Highway, but mostly behind a Truck to get slipstream ...

Our second MX-30 is used at City-Car and Town to Town Car ... over 3.000km --> 18,9kWh/100km

Outside Temperature is a big factor. Over 10°C its possible to reach 15,9kWh/100km. Got that at my first 2.000km ...

Well, here we are.....We have a 2019 Kona (64Kw) and today we bought a 100th Anniversary MX30, White with Maroon roof. We now have 2 cars at totally opposite range scales. This MX30 is our 4th EV since 2015, so we are not new to electric driving! We had a Kia Soul, Tesla Model S, and a Kona, and all used our wall box for heating up the battery and cabin, therefore not eating into the battery range. But the Mazda uses its own battery for that purpose, even when plugged in. That’s crazy! Not only that, but the Mazda doesn’t seem to warm up the battery either. It doesn’t show anywhere that it does, even at -17c, and the gauge on the screen shows the needle in the cold blue area. What’s going on Mazda? You also contradict yourself by saying that the reason you created a small battery is to save the environment as it’s cleaner to manufacture and that the car’s range falls within the average daily commute. When I asked the dealer why they didn’t make a “Frunk” in the spacious engine compartment, he said that the space was left for a future “Range Extender”....a RANGE EXTENDER? Yes a range extender using petrol which we are trying to get away from. If the MX30 has a range extender it will be useless here in Norway who has the most toll charges in Europe, and only 100% electric cars are exempt from paying tolls. Mazda, why didn’t you create a slightly bigger battery in the first place? Not happy at all...
