Mazda Ireland announces prices for all-electric MX-30

Mazda has released pricing for its new all-electric vehicle, the MX-30. Prices for the brand’s first all-electric car in Ireland will start at €30,495 including Government grants and VRT rebate, while a range-topping First Edition model has been added to the range. 

The entry GS-L model will come with range of equipment including radar cruise control, windscreen projected head-up-display, front and rear parking sensors, LED headlights and a rear camera. Higher grades such as the GT Sport will add equipment such as a 12 speaker Bose sound system, sunroof and 360° view camera. The First Edition model will be available from February 2021 while the rest of the line-up will be available for sale mid-2021. The range-topping First Edition model adds an array of additional equipment such as 8-way power driver seat with memory setting, adaptive LED signature headlights and a choice of dark or light leatherette and cloth interior for an extra €1,300 on the range starting price.

The Mazda MX-30 also features the latest MyMazda app which is available for free from the Apple AppStore and the Google Play Store. Mazda has added functions that are only possible on an electric vehicle, including notifications if a driver forgets to plug in the charging cable, the ability to control charging using a timer, monitoring charging progress and a range indicator. The MyMazda app also gives MX-30 drivers real-time information on the location and availability of charging points, demonstrates key information such as plug types and opening hours and even sends the destination directly to the navigation system

Exclusively available on the Mazda MX-30, users will be able to choose up to three destinations at once and remotely input the locations directly to the navigation system. This function allows drivers to plan a trip on their device when not in the car, and immediately have the guidance available once the vehicle is turned on. Other features of the upgraded app include being able to control the air-conditioning settings remotely. Users can set the cabin temperature, turn on/off windscreen ventilation and adjust the rear screen heating before entering the vehicle. The ability to pre-warm or pre-cool the car while it is plugged in reduces demand on the battery once driving.

Additional remote commands include door locking and a vehicle finder for added peace-of-mind. Further general functions include the ability to remotely access real time vehicle status information (including tyre pressure and door locking), roadside assistance, service history and service request.
