Baz, the newer model has an update that takes it from the advertised "40 ish" to the "50 ish" mark. I always assumed the 40'ish did not take in consideration losses between the supplier and the recipient hence the nearer 36 you state.

"The MX-30's charging ability received a welcome boost in 2022, improving from 40kW to a 50kW capability. Previously, the all-electric small SUV could manage a charge from 10 to 80 per cent in 39 minutes, while the revised system means a 20 to 80 per cent top-up takes 26 minutes"

According to my calculations even the upgrade will not deliver a true 50 but nearer the mid 40's all being well if you take 20 to 80% in 26 minutes based on 35.5 total battery not the 30.5 usable.

Yeah 😟 the upgrade they did is a small step forward for the new buyers.

I’m on a road trip and this is just disappointing. This is the first road trip with it and probably the last. It takes too much time to charge. I’m taking my CX-9 on the next road trip.
It's not a road-trip car unfortunately. The MX-30's max charge rate is around 110 miles per hour charged and it can drive for about 1.5 hours (100 miles, at highway speeds). So for each 1.5 hours of driving it needs almost 1 hour of charging. That is very very far for being road-trip worthy. For me the minimum would be about 2.5 hours of driving (= 200 miles of total range) and 30 mins of charging (a speed of around 350 miles per hour of charging) to be a road trip car. Most modern mid-sized EVs can do 220 miles on a charge and can do 130-150 kW fast charging which would be just enough to take them on long trips (hope Mazda will do at least this much for their dedicated EVs coming out in 2025).

I have not had any trouble taking the mx-30 to several trips from holland to swiss (1000km) and back. We drive max 100kmh and taken a hotel half way. The trip is cut in two times 450km. And 450km a day is easily done with the mx-30. Every 150km my dog wants to get out of the car, and at the same time we take the advantage for fast loading. A roadtrip is not about being the fastest. Off course the infrastructure need to be OK. And it is pretty OK along the way to the Wallis region. Im very thankfull that al lot of the tesla hotspots are open for other EV’s.
