The 2022 Mazda MX-30 is the first electric car from the Japanese automaker. It's based on the same platform as the Mazda3 and CX-30, but has unique coupe-like styling and two full front doors coupled with two rear half-doors, and of course the electric powertrain. That powertrain consists of a single, front-mounted electric motor making 143 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque. Power goes through a single-speed transmission to the front wheels only. The 35.5-kWh battery provides about 100 miles of range. To help make up for the limited range, Mazda offers a $500 credit toward buying a Level 2 home charger or for paying for public charging. It also has a program that lets MX-30 owners borrow any other Mazda model for up to 10 days a year for trips that require more range or space. It goes on sale in October in California, with more states coming next year. Mazda will also launch a plug-in hybrid variant in 2022.
