Mazda have released the full pricing for the entire Mazda MX-30 range, revealing that the all-electric vehicle will start at €30,495*. Pricing for the exclusive First Edition model had been previously released which adds an array of additional equipment such as 8-way power driver seat with memory setting, adaptive LED signature headlights and a choice of dark or light leatherette and cloth interior for an extra €1,300 on the range starting price. The GS-L entry grade will come with impressive equipment including radar cruise control, windscreen projected head-up-display, front and rear parking sensors, LED headlights and a rear camera. Higher grades such as the GT Sport will add equipment such as a 12 speaker Bose sound system, sunroof and 360° view camera. The First Edition model will be available from February 2021 while the rest of the line-up will be available for sale mid-2021.
The all new, all-electric Mazda MX-30 is also the first in the range to benefit from the latest MyMazda app which is now available for free from the Apple AppStore and the Google Play Store. It introduces Connected Services across Europe with advanced functionality that removes the barriers between the car and driver to create a seamless ownership experience. In preparation for the MX-30 arrival, Mazda has added functions that are only possible on an electric vehicle. These include notifications if a driver forgets to plug in the charging cable, the ability to control charging using a timer, monitoring charging progress, and a range indicator.
In addition to the latest upgrades, the MyMazda app gives MX-30 drivers real-time information on charging point availability and location, allows them to view key information such as plug types and opening hours, plus send the destination directly to the navigation system within seconds.
Exclusively available on the Mazda MX-30, users will be able to choose up to three destinations at once and remotely input the locations (including from third-party apps) directly to the navigation system. Compatible with both Android and Apple devices, this function allows drivers to plan a trip on their device when not in the car, and immediately have the guidance available once the vehicle is turned on.
Other convenient functions of the upgraded app include being able to control the air-conditioning settings remotely. As no engine is required, users can define the cabin temperature, turn on/off windscreen ventilation and adjust the rear screen heating before entering the vehicle. The ability to pre-warm or pre-cool the car while it is plugged in reduces demand on the battery once driving.
Additional remote commands include door locking and a vehicle finder for added driver peace-of-mind when away from the car. Further general functions include the ability to remotely access real time vehicle status information (including tyre pressure and door locking), roadside assistance, service history and service request.
