The new Mazda CX-30 and MX-30 have both been recognised in the ‘Red Dot: Product Design 2020’ awards. The CX-30 compact SUV and Mazda’s first all-electric car, the MX-30, join the growing list of award-winning Mazda models designed under the Kodo: Soul of Motion philosophy.
The new Mazda CX-30 is the second production model created with the latest evolution of the Kodo design philosophy – artful design, rooted in traditional Japanese aesthetics. The honing of every element according to the ‘less is more’ principle has resulted in clean, beautiful surfaces on the CX-30 and brought an entirely original look to the compact crossover SUV segment.
The Mazda CX-30’s high quality, human-centric interior combines ergonomic excellence with state-of-the-art technology. The latest developments in Mazda’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture harness people’s inherent balance ability for more natural and intuitive control of the vehicle. And the powertrain line-up features Skyactiv-X – Mazda’s revolutionary petrol engine which delivers diesel-like efficiency.
Though retaining the beautiful, hand-crafted forms of Kodo design, the styling of the Mazda MX-30 represents an exploration of a more modern aesthetic which focuses on the futuristic values and lifestyles that are beginning to emerge.
e-Skyactiv, Mazda’s new electric drive technology, features a 35.5kWh lithium ion battery equipping the Mazda MX-30 with a range of approximately 200km, far exceeding the 48km average daily drive of European customers. Both the new EV’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture and its i-Activsense safety technologies have been tailored to perfectly compliment the vehicle’s inherently smooth, quiet, all-electric driving behaviour.
