Salesmen lie. It's their job.
Thats also no revelation.

Glad you love it like I do.
I feel the same, it's my perfect entry in the world of EV's.
Really digging the look and feel and comfort, also my 6y.o. enjoys the coziness of the back seat.
Loves to read my HUD from out the back and telling me I am speeding too much.
It's this car.. haha.. its so easy

BTW.. Got a letter from mazda..
with a small 1hr recall for an update of the software.
Made an appointment early april.

This is regarding the break lights when in reverse.

And something with the hillassist on slippery roads.

They told me it would take a small hour, and off course its free.

Anyone else get the letter?

When you plan to drive big distances frequently. This car isnt the one.
That was very clear for the people doing their homework.
At least to me it was.

Max charging of 35kwh is not much.. but then again the majority of charger will not give you more than 11-22kwh

Unless you plan to fast charge a lot.. in that case this is also not the car for you.
People should be aware, and not be tempted by the looks and options.

If you worry about 20 extra minutes.. go buy an ICE car please.
Please stop rambling a good bit of kit which obviously isnt for you.
If roadtripping is your thing and you can not entertain yourself and the family for an extra 20 minutes.
DONT BUY THE MX30!!
obviously you are not the target consumers.. walk away.. even though its very nice.

Facts are facts. And doing your homework will point these things out

Gr from a super satisfied user
Don't get me wrong, I am super happy with my MX30, precisely because I do not use it for long distances. I had the car for six months now, and only charged it at home. So none of my trips was long enough to require charging on the go. But I just want to mention that with a charge speed of about 60 KW the car would have been much better for a wider range of users.

Agree.
But in a way I like this car is not for everyone.

If I could I still wouldnt buy a tesla model3.
Simply because every man and his dog is getting one or has one these days.

Mx30 is a niche car, totally agree👍
And we should be glad it fits our needs.
We are the lucky ones

Yes too many people drive the Model 3. I am getting tired of it.

It is a lovable car right?
After 13150 km it seems very predictable and reliable.
But Bert from the NL really does have a point when it comes to charging. You can even argue that with a small battery good charging speed is a must. It kind of lets the car down. But there you have it. Short range, useless well its just not true as most EV owners would tell you. 100 miles daily charge overnight is plenty for most folks. My poor MX-30 puts up with 100+ km almost daily. My girlfriend drives an id.3 and sa
dly to date havnt really bonded with the id.3. My mate from Hiroshima has not let me down- yet🤣🤣🤣

I think a small battery + fast charging = massive degradation.
Thus I think its a conscious decision from mazda

Look up reviews from the old leafs from 2013 etc.
Battery's degraded massively over time.

13150 km in less than 6 months....? Oops, that is really an endurance test :)

I Would have never gotten an mx30 with that mileage in mind. For sure!
Why not? Living in the countryside you drive more or less every day. But that does not mean that you use your MX-30 to travel far afield like Estocolmo or Berlin. It works great! Why spend money on a car and not use it? So my plan is to use it A LOT😃👍.

Why not? Great car, dependable predictable its made to drive and work. If I wanted an ornament for our garden or driveway would have bought a vintage Saab.

Indeed, if you rarely drive long distances spending money on a big-battery car would be a big waste. I have my MX30 for six months now and never charged up outside of my house. So all my trips were < 200 km up and down. But it did help that due to Covid our movements were restricted.
