I got my MX30 first edition delivered yesterday. The car replaces a VW e-golf 1.gen, the range is a little bit better in the MX30, otherwise the equipment and standard is quite similar I would argue. The lane assist however is much more passive and does not keep the car in the lane, it just warns you take the control of the car. Otherwise the ACC functions well and the heating of the interior is quicker than the e-golf. The steering and overall setup of the car is more engaging and inspiring in the MX30.

Very happy so far.

Your experience with lane keep assist is as I would have anticipated. I would have been disappointed otherwise. Mazdas have always been for people who enjoy driving. As they move into the new technologies, I expect them to be more of a backup to the driver instead of taking away the responsibility.

Please post some pictures and tell us more about your observations and opinions over the coming days and weeks.

Congratulations. I suspect you will have a lot of explaining when other drivers can ask you about your new car. We are just as interested.

Congrats! 👍

Exciting when these cars reach their owners. I got my MX-30 on the way from Hiroshima to me, expected to be delivered at the very beginning of November. What colour did you choose?

It would be sweet if you feel for reporting some Kw/h consumption averaging different circumstances.. I’m particularly curious about the total range just cruising the highway at 110 km/h.. or I just wait a few weeks to test such myself 😊

Greetings!

Good evening Daniel,
So far I have viewed almost all video Posts on YouTube that I could find about the Mazda MX 30. What strikes me is that the maximum battery level reaches around 200 km. From the WLTP specifications I would have expected a higher range... Would it imply that in city use the range is extracted with 60 extra kilometers just by regeneration? I doubt it.
There is german auto tester that drove the Mazda from full to empty (is a longlasting video). He realised a consumption average of 14,1 Kw per 100km. Look it up yourself at Andreas Haehnel.

Hey @Daniel & @Doleo how are you guys enjoying your MX-30 so far?
Hi!
It’s been really nice, the car is comfortable and feels solid! I have about 600 km on the clock now and testing out the power consumptions under different circumstances. The other day I drove carefully to work (43 km) on smaller country roads and ended up at average 14.3 kWh. Doing the highway steady at 110 km/h gives about 19.4 kWh. The roads are wet and the temperature about 4 degrees C. I use air-condition 19 C and listen to radio. I’m alright with the figures 🙂

A few “problems”,
  • headlights are aiming too high and people are flashing at me all the time.
  • there is a very subtle rattle coming from driver side when going on bumpy roads, about where the seatbelts attach. Not sure what that is yet.
  • the MyMazda app is quite horrible to use, very slow and stops working.
That’s it.

overall it seems good, the car will go to the dealer on Friday to hopefully sort the rattle and the headlights.

Pushing at this area dramatically increasing the rattle.

Sorry to hear about the problems but I'm glad you're enjoying it. Hopefully it's a quick fix for both the lights and the rattle. You're definitely not the only one experiencing issues with the MyMazda app, the reviews are brutal for it.

Interesting to read your experiences of the mx-30.
I didn't have the nerve to buy one, due to the driving range. Ended up with a Hyundai Kona electric 64 kw instead.
I took a test drive once in a mx-30 and the rear seats seemed to be for kids or adults travelling a short distance.
I would have loved to have traded my cx-5 for a electric cx-30 with 450 km drive range.
Well, maybe in a near future.
