All Electric Mazda CX-30 Revealed At Auto Shanghai 2021

The electric CX-30 will be Mazda’s first EV for China


  • It rides on the brand’s SkyActiv platform.

  • It also shares the electric MX-30’s e-SkyActiv powertrain.


The Mazda MX-30 will make its way to our shores by the end of 2021. China, however, an EV-hungry market, will get in its stead an electric version of the popular CX-30 small SUV.

Details about the electric CX-30 are extremely limited for the moment. All indications do point to the fact that it would ride on the same platform and use an identical powertrain configuration to that of the MX-30.

The MX-30 will feature a 35.5 kWh battery that will feed a front-mounted electric motor. The latter will produce up to 144 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque. On a full charge, the MX-30’s range is rated at 200 km according to the generous WLTP cycle.

The electric CX-30 differs visually from the ICE versions as it sits higher and sports more prominent wheel arch flares, larger front spoiler, side steps, and rocker panels. If we didn’t know any better, we’d guess that a CX-30 shell was simply dropped on the MX-30’s platform…

Sales in China of the all-electric Mazda CX-30 are expected to begin later this summer.
