Mazda’s first production electric car, the Mazda MX-30, was recently introduced to the public as being extremely environmentally friendly, with its e-Skyactiv package, using ecological materials, and a battery with a range of 200km (125 miles).
The interior features eco-friendly materials and replaces real leather with a vegan alternative. There is also environmentally sourced cork in the floating center console, which provides creative storage space.
Commenting on the premiere of the Mazda MX-30, which will arrive in European dealerships during the second half of 2020 (UK and Ireland 2021), Yasuhiro Aoyama, president and CEO of Mazda Motor Europe, said, “As with all our products, our designers and engineers had a very clear goal for our first battery-electric vehicle. It had to have stand-out design, be great to drive, something that is key part of Mazda’s DNA and makes us unique when compared with competitors, and most importantly, make a positive contribution to reducing emission across the entire lifecycle of the product.”
Aoyama says the new Mazda electric vehicle features a “simple yet functional console” and an interior space “designed to help you focus your mind and feelings” that helps drivers “feel focused and positive” while discovering “their natural selves through the process of living with the car”.
