Mazda has introduced the new plug-in hybrid SUV, the Mazda MX-30 R-EV, and is already making waves in the market. This innovative crossover combines electric driving with an extended range thanks to its unique rotary engine technology. The Mazda MX-30 R-EV is not only an eco-friendly vehicle but also an incredibly safe one. It has received a maximum five-star rating from Euro NCAP, making it a top choice for drivers looking for a vehicle that offers both state-of-the-art safety technology and style.
The Mazda MX-30 R-EV's safety features are impressive and reflect Mazda's commitment to safety. The car comes with a range of active and passive safety technologies, which Mazda calls i-Activesense. These technologies help the driver identify and avoid potential risks, reducing the likelihood of damage or injury. Additionally, the car meets high pedestrian protection standards, which helps mitigate the effects of a possible collision with unprotected road users. One of the key factors behind the MX-30 R-EV's excellent performance in crash safety tests is Mazda's Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture, which features a strong body with high rigidity and well-defined shock-absorbing zones.
The Mazda MX-30 R-EV's unique engine technology is also worth mentioning. It comes with a compact Wankel engine of 830 cm that can produce electricity for the car's electric motor when the battery charge is low. This offers a driving experience similar to the MX-30 electric car. The MX-30 R-EV has a pure electric range of 85 km, making it ideal for city driving. However, the Wankel engine can extend the range up to 370 miles on a single tank of fuel (WLTP combined cycle), making it ideal for long-distance trips.
