The Mazda MX-30, the automaker’s first all-electric vehicle, is officially coming to Canada.
Mazda Canada Director of Public Relations Sandra Lemaitre told Automotive News Canada the vehicle will arrive in Canadian dealerships in the “latter half” of calendar year 2021.
Few other details are available at this stage. Pricing, the number of units to be allocated for the Canadian market, and whether product rollout will be staggered to give priority to provinces with EV purchase rebates are being discussed but have yet to be confirmed, Lemaitre said.
A decision has also not yet been made on whether Canada will receive the mild hybrid version of the MX-30, which in early August was announced for release in select global markets.
The MX-30 BEV was first revealed at the 2019 Tokyo auto show and has already been released in the European market, which was given priority due to its stringent emissions regulations. There, its 35.5-kWh lithium ion prismatic battery is rated at 200 km of range. No plans have yet been announced for providing a longer-range option.
