Mazda MX-30 is the first EV which is made slower to feel like a gasoline car

Mazda is not in one of the automobile manufacturers who are in the news for their development in electric vehicle technology. However, the Japanese multinational automaker has decided to jump in with the “electric trend” with their first innovative EV, the Mazda MX-30. Though the MX-30 is an all-new purely electric vehicle, but it lags in some of the areas as compared to its rivals. The company has artificially decreased the speed and torque of the EV.

The company believes that the large electrical cells are harmful and that bigger batteries produce more CO2 than their diesel cars. Hence, they tried to compress the size of the battery pack. It directly affects the speed and torque of the electric vehicle. The company claims the Mazda MX-30 has 142 bhp and 264 Nm of torque. The 0-60 mph time is approximately nine seconds, which is a lot more as compared to its rivals.

However, the customizations lead to a lower range. The Mazda MX30 is capable of covering only 210km in a single charge of the 35.5 kWh battery pack. This range is very less as compared to the rivals like Tesla, Tata Nexon, etc.

The second reason for reducing the speed and the torque of the Mazda MX-30 is that the company wanted to give a touch of gasoline car driving experience in the EV. We don’t think that the Japanese automakers are in the mood of bringing something powerful in the coming future. But, the hybrids can be the go-to option for the company. Now we need to wait and see how people will react to all-new Mazda MX-30, which obviously targeting a very unique market.
