Mazda has confirmed pricing for its first electric car, set to arrive on the market in 2021.
Limited to just 500 UK cars, the MX-30 First Edition is now available to order with pricing kicking off at £26,995 including the £3,500 government plug-in car grant.
Standard equipment on this high-spec grade includes cork-lined centre console trays, an infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, adaptive cruise control and even a free home charger.
Powering the car is a 35.3kWh battery, said to offer a range of around 124 miles between charges. When linked up to a 50kW rapid charger, the EV is said to be capable of being charged from flat to 80 per cent in just half an hour.
Jeremy Thomson, Mazda Motors UK managing director, 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.Mazda MX-30 Deals

“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.”
Pricing and specifications for other trim levels of the Mazda MX-30 will be confirmed later this year.
