Full UK specification and pricing has been revealed for the Mazda’s first all-electric production vehicle – the Mazda MX-30. Prices start at £25,545, with initial First Edition models from £27,545. UK customer deliveries start in March next year.
The MX-30 features an AC synchronous electric motor and a 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery that delivers a range of approximately 124 miles and comes with AC charging up to 6.6kW and DC rapid charging designed to meet 125A Combo Charging standards.
Having previously announced pricing of the 500-model limited edition Mazda MX-30 First Edition – Mazda UK has now revealed the price and specification of the full MX-30 line-up. Available across three model grades – SE-L Lux, Sport Lux and GT Sport Tech, the three-model line-up, complements the already revealed First Edition.
Standard equipment on all UK MX-30s includes LED headlights with daytime running lights, reversing camera, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Intelligent Speed Assist, navigation and head-up display. Each MX-30 comes as standard with a Type 2 AC charging cable and a socket for 50kW rapid charging, which can in just 36 minutes deliver up to 80 per cent battery charge. In addition, packages for home charging solutions from Mazda’s preferred partner NewMotion ensure MX-30 owners in the UK will be ready for charging convenience.
The first opportunity to order and take delivery of the MX-30 – the £27,495 MX-30 First Edition – can be pre-ordered now and is available with a choice of free-of-charge Ceramic Metallic or Polymetal Grey Metallic single colours. The First Edition can also be ordered with either £950 three-tone Ceramic Metallic or £1,250 three-tone Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint. This three-tone design further marks out the MX-30’s unique styling with a brilliant black roof and metallic dark grey upper side panels to contrast the Soul Red Crystal or Ceramic Metallic main body colour. Other standard equipment highlights on the First Edition include adaptive LED headlights, satin D pillar trim and signature LED rear lights. Inside, the First Edition features a light and modern cabin ambiance with light grey cloth and stone leatherette combined with orange seat stitching. Eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat and chrome interior details, plus heated front seats compliment the interior style.
With UK deliveries starting in March 2021, the 500 First Edition MX-30s will be the debut cars to arrive in Mazda dealerships followed by the now announced full range, which starts with the £25,545 Mazda MX-30 SE-L Lux.

Commenting on the Mazda MX-30, Managing Director, Mazda Motors UK, Jeremy Thomson, said: “our first all-electric Mazda heralds an exciting start to Mazda’s second century in business. With the First Edition MX-30 order book now open, customers in the UK can reserve a car for just £800 for delivery early in 2021. A battery electric vehicle conceived and created with Mazda’s well-renowned focus on distinctive styling, innovative technology, driver focused dynamics and class-leading interior quality, the MX-30 will be a stand out addition to the rapidly evolving EV marketplace. Part of Mazda’s multi-solution approach to efficient vehicles, the launch of our first pure electric car is a milestone moment for the brand and a landmark moment for our dealers and customers here in the UK.”
Adding, “with the announcement of pricing and specification of the three-model UK MX-30 line up, our customers and dealers can see that next year we will have a well-equipped EV range that forms part of an electrification strategy that has already seen Mazda M Hybrid, mild hybrid fitted as standard to the Mazda3, Mazda CX-30 and manual Mazda2s. And over the coming months across our digital platforms and our dealer network we will have a range of opportunities for potential customers to get familiar with the MX-30, ranging from answering their questions, to seeing the car and even opportunities for early test drives.”
