Last year Mazda unveiled its first electric car, the MX-30. The small electric crossover is slated to go on sale in several markets in Europe and Asia, but it’s not known if it will arrive in the United States. Well if you like the MX-30, there’s hope that another version will arrive here, since Mazda has unveiled a new mild-hybrid MX-30.
Mazda hasn’t released all the details about the hybrid MX-30, but it will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor. The fuel economy and power specs have not been released. The fully electric MX-30 is powered by a 35.5 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery that gives it a 124 mile driving range on Europe’s WLTP cycle.
On the outside the hybrid and EV versions of the MX-30 are nearly identical, although the hybrid has an e-Skyactiv-G badge on the rear.
For now we’ll have to see if the hybrid MX-30 arrives in the US.
