Mazda executives said they did it to make the MX-30 ‘feel more like a gas car’ and continued to explain that “Mazda’s engineers have also tuned the torque delivery of the MX-30’s electric motor to be less frenetic than is often the case with EVs, reasoning that they want the MX-30 to feel less like a dramatic change from a typical internal combustion engine vehicle.”

If you want more, don't expect it as Mazda also says they will never build a 'big-battery' EV.

Did Mazda make the right call here, because think its crazy they limited themselves!

I don't know why Mazda is doing this, especially by saying they won't make a big battery EV. I think this is going to deter a lot of customers that want more range.

If regular car buyers in densely populated locations is their target, then it works.

The EV is perfect for the Europe market. Unfortunately not for sale persons which does a lot of driving. For me i got this one as a fun car and driving me to work daily. It's perfect for me as i don't need more. Just a waste of battery which i would never need for maybe once or twice a year.

It does seem like it was designed with European driving in mind. Would the MX-30 be your first EV? Or have you owned others before?

Nah, the first ev was a jaguar i-pace. But for me personally to expensive for the range i drive. That made my decision for the MX-30 easier.

I haven't driven one before but I've heard good things about it. Do you plan on trading it in for the MX-30?

Hey @ReillyJ ,

Awesome! Great car!
See pictures attached.
Car just feels like a normal car. Driving and steering is completely different with other EV verhicles. I do have videos of driving away and throttle response but can't upload them here

@ReillyJ just by driving. It doesn't feel heavy on the roads like any other EV. i have experienced the jaguar and tesla both before. Backseats are not that big in space. But with my height of 6ft. 3 inch. I am not the regular height to fit in. But a little smaller fits perfect.
