    2022 Mazda MX-30 update

    For the model year 2022, the Europe-spec Mazda MX-30’s three-phase AC charging is now supported at up to 11 kW, up from the previous 6.6 kW. As for DC fast charging support it has increased from 40 kW to 50 kw.

    Mazda claims that with the DC fast charger, the new MX-30 now needs just 26 minutes to charge from 10 to 80 percent, i.e., 10 minutes faster than before.

    In addition, the 2022 MX-30 also gets a revised drivetrain sound. This new sound is supposed to help the driver “recognise the amount of torque being generated by the power unit”. Mazda has also optimised the frequency to make the electric crossover sound more like other cars (wind and road noise).

    No revisions have been made on the battery front, the EV comes equipped with the same 35.5 kW unit. Meaning while there’s no hike in the range (200 km), the customer would benefit from a speedy charge.
