The Evolution of Hybrid

Mazda has always been known for its innovation, and the Mazda M Hybrid technology is no different! Considered a mild hybrid technology, it uses a small Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) to capture energy that would normally be wasted during braking. The energy is then used to power the engine, saving the amount of fuel being used. This means, unlike a plug in Hybrid or electric vehicle – no plug or charging is ever required.

During deceleration, the ISG produces electricity which is stored in a 24 volt battery and is then used for a number of purposes including starting the engine and powering the car’s electrical system. The electric motor assistance also helps make pulling away from a standstill and gear changing much easier, providing you with a smoother drive compared with a non-hybrid engine.

The Mazda M Hybrid comes as standard on all Mazda3 and Mazda CX-30 models, including Skyactiv-X vehicles and it also features on 2020 Mazda2 models with manual transmissions.

Introducing the First All-Electric Mazda

As well as being the first full electric vehicle produced by Mazda, the all-new MX-30 brings a new standard for an electric SUV. The MX-30 couples Mazda’s unique handling with intelligent e-Skyactiv electric drive technology, designed to take you wherever life leads.

The full electric vehicle includes a 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery with a range of 124 miles per charge, easily meeting your daily needs, but also reducing your environmental impact. Charging time will vary depending on the charger being used – on the go at a fast charging DC charger you may only need 40 minutes, and using an AC charging (those found in most households) will take approximately 5 hours.

The battery is also equipped with a special protective structure to fully shield the driver and passengers from the secondary risk of high voltage in the unlikely event of an accident. And what’s more, Mazda are confident in the durability and longevity of the battery, they guarantee it will last for up to 8 years or 100,000 miles, giving you that added peace of mind!

The MX-30 also comes with an exclusive MyMazda app which shows the charging status of the battery and allows you to control the climate settings of the car directly from your phone before you even get in. The app will also notify you if you have forgotten to charge the battery, ensuring a seamless move to full electric.

Sustainability was clearly at the forefront of the design and development process for the first all-electric Mazda, and the MX-30 really does deliver the outstanding driving pleasure that Mazda is known for, along with a good-sized battery that easily meets every driver’s needs.
