Mazda Ireland has confirmed that its incoming MX-30 electric crossover will start from €32,295 on the road, inclusive of the SEAI grant and VRT rebate.
Generous First Edition spec
The MX-30 will kick off with a high-spec First Edition launch model, which is actually listed at €42,295 before the rebates. For that, you get the full electric-vehicle (EV) powertrain with its 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery pack, allowing a range of 200km (and compatible with AC charging to 6.6kW and DC rapid charging meeting 125A Combo Charging Standards), as well as a kit list that includes a seven-inch screen for the climate controls, a three-tone exterior design (Brilliant Black roof, Metallic Grey upper-side panels and then a choice of Soul Red Crystal or Ceramic Metallic for the main body), light-grey cloth and stone leatherette upholstery with orange seat stitching, Adaptive LED signature headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, an eight-way electric-adjustable driver's seat, a head-up display, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome trim accents in the cabin, Mazda Connect infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, and Radar Cruise Control, among more.
Customers ordering a Mazda MX-30 First Edition will qualify for the €600 wallbox home-charger SEAI grant, with the car fitted with both a Type 2 mode 2 charge cable for three-pin charging and a Type 2 mode 3 charge cable for AC charging via home or public charge points. The DC socket allowed for rapid charging up to 50kW, which leads to an 80 per cent replenishment of the Mazda's battery in 30-40 minutes.
'Customers will be thrilled'
John Perry, managing director for Mazda Motors Ireland, said: "The Mazda MX-30 will offer a unique proposition to the electric vehicle market. The battery size was strategically chosen to allow for sharp yet comfortable driving dynamics, while staying true to overall CO2 minimisation. This will be one of the most stylish electric vehicles to come out in 2021 and will certainly cater to those who enjoy driving. I'm confident customers will be thrilled."
