Mazda presented its first full electric car, the MX-30, at the Tokyo Motor Show on Wednesday. The new Mazda is a crossover that is expected to be about 200 kilometers away on a battery charge.

The Japanese Mazda has chosen not to base its first electric car on an existing model, despite the fact that the exterior dimensions match those of the CX-30. The MX-30 is 4.39 meters long and has a wheelbase of 2.65 meters. Striking are the rear doors, which, just like the Mazda RX-8 and recently also the BMW i3, open in the opposite direction.

The car has a relatively small battery of 35.5 kWh. Information about the range of the MX-30 is not yet available, but according to insiders at the Tokyo Motor Show, the model is about 200 kilometers away.

In the Netherlands, the fully electric Mazda MX-30 costs at least 33,990 euros. When the car comes to our country is not yet known.
