Hi All
In the last few charges our battery when on full charge isnt charging to the full mileage, infact its getting less miles every time. So 2 weeks ago it charged to 115 miles, last week 99 miles but due to the cold i only managed to get 63 miles on this full charge as it kept dropping every time it was driven and now just charged it and it's only got 90 miles on a full charge. Dread to think how many miles we will actually get.
Has any one else had this problem please?

It's not a problem it's a fact of life with mx30's. Check your info on steering wheel to see what your average driving mile per kwh is. At this time of year it should be in the 3. something range. Combine that with cold weather and a myriad of other factors and hey presto shorter miles per kwh. As I have stated already I am now chilled about it, realise its not a car issue it is what it is and just get on with it. We started with 124 range and that was already low so come this time of year its only going to get lower. I just shrug my shoulders and get on driving.

Hi Kiwal
I would be happy to get 140km but im lucky to get 95 at the minute.
I think your getting confused between miles and kilometres…….. You are correct though, battery performance drops in winter time. Ours currently goes to 106 miles on a full charge. To try and combat it I stay off motorways and dual carriageways and use the brakes as little as possible,using the regen to slow me.
Im hoping I get the full 126 miles back in the spring!
Also, I’m not that fussed by ‘fast chargers’. Unless there’s little or no range left I charge at home or the 7kw free ones👍

@Michelle - I think these are some very low numbers for miles / kilometers distance in winter time.

I do not know the weather in GB at the moment, but I do not remember it as very cold or cold as our friends in Norway, Sweden and Finland have.

We live in Denmark and have recently had temperatures in the range -5 to 10 degrees and our average consumption during this period has been 17.5 KWh per 100 km. (28 KWh / 100 miles). This is what is displayed on the consumption display in the instrument cluster (has not been reset for 2 month now).
However, I can see that if are charging up to 100%, the possible distance will usually be just around 180 km. In summer it is between 195-215 km.

I recently spoke with another owner of an MX30 and they drove significantly fewer kilometers than we can, so I have got the idea that there maybe are differences between the individual cars. It is probably quite essential always to have the latest software updates installed.
But it is still strange that it seems that there can be major differences in consumption figures for 2 identical cars driving in the same area. Yes I know - the driver and driving style does matter :)

Steen, as does the terrain, heating, tyre pressure etc.etc. The list goes on as does conversations about range during winter months. There are too many variables to say what you should or should not get. I think we are too quick to jump to conclusions about "do we have a problem" rather than this is what we were given how do we make the best of it. Sure there will be the very occasional car where there may be a problem but in the main we have to recognise the limits of this beast and try to tame it as best we can. If owners genuinely think they have a problem contact the dealership but I bet the dealer will say what do you want us to do...we can check for error codes but....its winter, its electric, it has a small battery..no Mazda technical issue reports and your s/w is up to date.

It's new to a lot of people so we need be patient, adjust our driving style with the car, recognise the road and weather conditions and the limitations of the mx30 and then just be accepting and chill.

Rant over...it kept me away from strictly come dancing thank god!
