Did somebody leak the Mazda MX-30 Concept before its official unveiling at the Tokyo Motor Show? Could this be the brand’s first EV?
Mazda announced a new electric vehicle to be revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show. This would be the Japanese manufacturer first mass-produced EV.
A few weeks ago, the carmaker invited a few journalists to test drive the new powertrain in what they called the Mazda e-TPV, or Electric Test Prototype Vehicle. The e-TPV was based on the all-new CX-30.
Since then, Mazda keeps releasing short video teasers of the upcoming EV. Until now.
A leaked image of what looks like a magazine page surfaced today showing the Mazda MX-30 in all its glory. Yes, the concept will be called, apparently, the MX-30.
The latest teaser appeared on YouTube a few days ago with this caption: “Our all-new, all-electric vehicle embodies an expansion of our renowned Kodo design philosophy. Grounded in the beautifully honed, handcrafted forms traditional to Mazda, our EV also explores new directions in design. By rethinking what matters most, the overall form is uncompromisingly simple and adopts a unique door concept, opening your mind.”
The description fits the picture above perfectly even the “unique door concept”, which we can see has some kind of suicide doors.
That being said, the full Mazda MX-30 Concept will be showed in a few days during the press days of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. Stay tuned.
