is called Mazda MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV The new extended-range electric version of the crossover that uses a new generation of Rotary engine Wankel as generator. It joins the pure electric version called e-Skyactive and in Italy it is offered with a price list 38,150 euros.
The Japanese house, always very unique in its artistic proposals, with Mazda MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV It therefore removes the so-called “recharge anxiety” that characterizes some electric vehicles. The engine consists of a hybrid system Where the thermal part performs a function Electrical generator. Unit Electrician to hand in 170 hp and 260 Nm of torque and is powered by a 17.8 kWh battery The lithium-ion battery is capable of guaranteeing up to 85 km of travel in electric mode. Then the autonomy is expanded through the agreement Rotary engine Wankel of 830 cm3 with 74 hp at 4700 rpm which is reliable 50 liter petrol tank.
With a rotor radius of 120 mm (tropical curve of rotor travel) and a rotor width of 76 mm, its compact size allows for axial positioning andIntegration with the electric motor, decelerator and alternator for a unit with an overall width of less than 840 mm, housed in the hood of the MX-30 BEV without structural modifications. Engineers reduced the weight of the internal combustion engine by more than 15 kg by using aluminum for the side housing section.
The MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV is equipped with three driving modes depending on the situation: Normal, EV and Recharge. there normal mode Offers an electric drive as long as the battery charge is sufficient; If higher power is required, for example in the acceleration phase, the rotary armature-generator is activated. there Fourth situation It is only electric while using Reload mode It is possible to conserve the amount of energy in the battery for certain needs (in the evening and for moving around city centers).
To “fill up”, you can use single-phase, three-phase (alternating current) and fast charging (DC). Using a 36 kW fast charging module, the battery can be It recharges from 20% to 80% in about 25 minutes. With a normal three-phase (AC) 11 kW recharge, the collector can be recharged in about 50 minutes, which becomes 1 hour 30 with a single phase of 7.2 kW.
Three trim levels are available for the Mazda MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV: first lines (38150), private line (39.100) e Makoto (41,400). To celebrate the return of the Wankel engine, the Mazda e-Skyactiv R-EV It will also be available in a limited edition Release R, at a price 45,650 euros. The latter is characterized by some specific aesthetic customization, such as aluminum rims, for example, optimized from an aerodynamic point of view, the body color Maroon Rouge, a metallic color that pays homage to the roof color of the Mazda R360 Coupé, the first car in the house, then also used in the 2020 in a special edition to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Mazda.
Then there are the many “goodies” like the key shell (the front and back shell of the remote control), with the horizontal edges of the front shell designed to have a curvature at the same angle as the sides of the rotors in a rotary motor MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV. Additionally, the remote’s sculpted sides that slope outward are 2.5mm wide (the same width as the grooves on radial seals) and finished in a high-gloss lacquer. Other customizations include floor mats and seats with embroidered headrests. For all customers who decide to book by March 31st, the Japanese home will offer up to 8,500 euros in interest.
