The Mazda MX-30 e-SKYACTIV R-EV – the perfect solution for flexible motoring

Mazda MX-30 e-SKYACTIV R-EV - Making range anxiety a thing of the past

The MAZDA MX-30 is already proving very popular with Stuarts customers who are looking to combine the environmental and economical benefits of an all-electric drive with the style and performance of a Mazda compact crossover. However, depending on the type of journeys you undertake, and perhaps your access to charging, driving a pure battery EV is not always practical.
With the MX-30 e-SKYACTIV R-EV, Mazda can now offer a solution, combining advanced EV technology, with the Mazda rotary engine. This is a unique plug-in hybrid model that means you can have all the advantages of EV technology, but without the problems of range and charging anxiety.
The MX-30 e-SKYACTIVE R-EV offers 85 km battery electric driving range, which can often be sufficient for everyday needs. For longer distances Mazda has developed a unique and ingenious solution, with the car featuring a compact and light rotary engine generating additional power to extend the driving range. The rotary engine, an innovation perfected by Mazda over several decades, does not power the wheels as in a normal hybrid car, but is used exclusively to generate extra power for the electric motor. This allows the MX-30 e-SKYACTIVE R-EV to have a total driving range of around 640 km without the need to charge or refuel, while also offering class leading emission reduction. 
The car offers excellent flexibility when it comes to charging with both AC and DC options available. The battery can be fully charged in as little as 25 minutes at a rapid DC charging station. The combination of charging flexibility and supplementary power generation means that the MX-30 e-SKYACTIVE R-EV can drive in pure EV mode for the vast majority of journeys. Indeed, through its own analysis, Mazda has found that most drivers average around 42 km per day, meaning that EV mode can be engaged all the time.
When a longer distance has to be covered the newly developed 8C rotary engine provides the additional power required. Ultra compact and efficient, this generation unit not only makes the car lighter in itself, but also means a smaller lighter battery can be utilised, which is better for range and better for the environment. An adjustable regenerative braking system also captures braking energy and feeds this back into the electrical system for added efficiency.
Of course, in its quest to make the MX-30 e-SKYACTIVE R-EV both as environmentally friendly and as practical as possible, including many recycled materials in the stylish interior, Mazda has not forgotten the driving experience. The car features a level of driver engagement that most electric vehicles cannot match with excellent steering feedback, precise handling and outstanding acceleration and performance.
So if you are looking for the environmental, economical and forward thinking benefits of an electric vehicle, but also need the flexibility of the range offered by an internal combustion engine, then the MX-30 e-SKYACTIV R-EV can offer the perfect solution, all wrapped up in a package that also delivers on Mazda style, ingenuity and cutting edge technology.
