One of the most interesting hybrids of 2023 has just been unveiled. **Mazda** has finally revealed all the details of the new** Mazda MX-30** e-Skyactiv R-EV, the plug-in hybrid version of its electric crossover.

This new version is halfway between the concepts of serial hybrid and electric drive with extended range, as its main novelty lies in the use of a new gasoline rotary engine that acts as a generator. Promising to be able to move up to 100 km in 100% electric mode, let us find out what makes** the Mazda MX-30 E-EV** so interesting.

Previously, **the Mazda MX-30 **was a 100% electric car with an electric motor of 145 CV and 270 Nm, 35.5 kWh batteries and an average range (WLTP) of 200 km. It is therefore a car aimed at urban traffic, a scenario in which it can shine as an electric crossover thanks to its ratio of autonomy, size and weight.

**The Mazda MX-30 Hybrid **can be charged from a wall socket, but also with its gasoline generator

But Mazda wanted an answer to all those who demanded an electric drive for long distances, so it converted the Mazda MX-30 into a hybrid vehicle with some special features.

- For starters,
**the Mazda MX-30 R-EV**uses an electric motor with 170 CV and 260 Nm, powered by a 17.8 kWh battery with 355 volts and capable of covering up to 85 km in 100%**electric mode**, which can be 110 km in city traffic. - Instead of increasing the range by using a larger battery pack, Mazda decided to reduce the size of the main battery and install a new rotary motor that acts as a power generator. De este modo.

una vez agotada la energía de las baterías o en momentos de alta demandand de potencia, el generador se pone en marcha para producir energía eléctrica (como ocurre en un Nissan Qashaqi e-Power), aunque nunca moverá las ruedas ya que no está conectada a ellas (como sí permite un Honda HR -V e:HEV en determinadas circunstancias).

The rotary engine developed by **Mazda **is completely new, located in the bonnet, has a single rotor with 830 cc and can develop 74 CV maximum power at 4,700 rpm and 116 Nm at 4,000 rpm.

- It is also a more modern and efficient Wankel engine than its predecessors in the RX-8 and RX-7, using direct gasoline combustion, exhaust gas recirculation ( EGR) and new materials that ensure less friction between components and greater durability.
- Since the vehicle is designed as a generator that works constantly to produce electrical energy, we estimate that it can achieve a total autonomy of more than 600 km with the 50 litres of gasoline from its depot.
- The final homologation of the MX-30 R-EV is still pending, and Mazda has so far only indicated a mixed consumption of 1 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 21 grammes.
- The Mazda MX-30 R-EV is designed as an all-electric powertrain for everyday use and, unlike most hybrid vehicles, allows the battery to be charged from a power outlet. Thus, it is possible to charge the MX-30 R-EV with a power of up to 11 kW in AC mode or with a power of up to 36 kW in continuous mode.

Optionally, it is also possible to install a bidirectional power supply system with an output of up to 1,500 W.

**The Mazda MX-30** R-EV's performance is very similar to that of the electric MX-30, with acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 9.1 seconds (9.7 s for the MX-30) and a top speed of 140 km/h. Weight is also very low, at 1,778 kg for the MX-30 R-EV and 1,720 kg for the MX-30.

### Price of the Mazda MX-30 R-EV:

**The Mazda MX-30** e-Skyactiv R-EV is already available at a price of 38,050 euros, which represents a price advantage of 1,470 euros over the 100% electric version. A efectos del plan MOVES, la cuantía disponible será menor, si bien sí que disfrutará de la misma etiqueta CERO emisiones de la DGT.
