Does the all-new Mazda MX-30 have regenerative braking?

Yes it does. One of the unique features of an electric motor is that it can be both a motor and a generator. When depressing the accelerator the battery powers the motor. However, when off the accelerator, while coasting or applying the brakes, the motor switches into generator mode. This slows the car down just as if you had shifted to a lower gear in a conventional car.

At the same time, energy which would normally be lost is converted into usable energy that can be stored in the car’s battery and used to extend the usable range of the vehicle whilst driving.


What is the range of the all-new Mazda MX-30?

The range is expected to be a WLTP 124 miles* (subject to homologation closer to launch).

Is there a way to optimise the range?

Yes. The range is dependent upon the weather, your speed and the use of electrical features within the car, such as air conditioning or heated seats.

What is the difference between AC and DC charging?

AC (or alternating current) is the type of current supplied to our homes and work by the National Grid. It is most often supplied via a 3-pin socket. Because this current is easily accessible, it is the most common type of current used for electric vehicle charging infrastructure at home and on the public network. To charge using this current, the Mazda MX-30 uses a Type 2 plug. This is the most common plug type in the UK. You can use the Type 2 (mode 3) AC charging cable that comes as standard with the car to charge with your home wall box or AC public charger (if untethered).

DC (or direct current) enables faster charging, because it has a higher voltage. This type of electricity is only accessible via specialised DC chargers, usually found on motorways and some large retailers. All DC chargers will have specialist tethered cables attached to their units. To charge using this current, use a CCS (Combined Charging System) plug.

How does the charging process work?

It’s easy, and the same procedure as with every other electric vehicle. You plug it into your wallbox at home or at any public charging station in your area. Using the wallbox is highly recommended, as it offers you the convenience of charging from the comfort of your own home. You may also plug it into a normal electric socket although this is the slowest method of charging and not recommended as a regular way of charging.

What kind of plug does the all-new Mazda MX-30 use? Can i use any charging station for my vehicle?

This vehicle can be charged at any public charging station equipped with a CCS or type 2 plug. It can also be charged at home using a wallbox or a domestic socket.

How long does it take until the battery is fully charged?

Charging times vary according to how you do it. On the go, you may need only 40 minutes if you use a 50kW fast-charging station. Using a less powerful station (e.g. 22 kW), you may need 4.5 hours*. Overnight charging with your domestic plug at home may be completed in as little as 14.3 hours*, giving you time to recharge your own battery, as well as your car’s.

How do electric cars work?

There are no gears in an electric car, it's direct drive - straight to the wheels. Just press the accelerator pedal and you get smooth power instantly from the electric motor; it's clean, efficient and produces strong performance with zero emissions.

Do electric cars need a gearbox?

Electric cars don't have gears, because they run directly from the electric motor. Speed depends on how much acceleration you demand. No clutch is required, since the electric motor can produce torque from 0 RPM upwards.

Can electric car batteries be recycled?

The batteries that power electric cars (and hybrids) can be recycled. The batteries, with their lighter weight and longer range, are lithium-ion type - just like laptops and mobile phones.

Do electric cars give off emissions?

An electric car doesn't have an exhaust or tailpipe, so it's emission free and can be classified legitimately zero - which is certainly beneficial for an urban environment where local air pollution is a real problem.
