July 21st, 2022 by

Mazda’s first all-electric vehicle has hit the market with the debut of the 2022 MX-30 EV. You get nimble handling from the small size, making it an excellent option for commuting in the urban jungle. The interior offers a quiet ride and impressive cargo space, although it lacks a frunk like other EVs. The MX-30 is based on the design of the CX-30, a small SUV from Mazda that also offers a classy cabin and sharp handling. Let’s look at the 2022 Mazda MX-30 EV Breakdown.
