Mazda’s first electric vehicle has been priced for Australia.
The MX-30 Electric will be available in one trim level, priced at $65,490 before on-road costs.
You can pre-order one from today, May 5, 2021, with deliveries beginning in August 2021.
There’ll be an initial release of just 100 models, and the MX-30 Electric will be sold in 100 dealers nationwide.
Mazda is also offering the MX-30 Electric with its Mazda Assure guaranteed future value program through Mazda Finance.
Offered over a four-year loan term, this program gives consumers lower monthly repayments and gives them the option of trading-in, keeping or returning their MX-30 once the loan term ends.
This is subject to the MX-30 not exceeding an agreed mileage or having unreasonable wear and tear.
Mazda is also offering a fixed-rate loan option with a seven-year term, where consumers can opt to trade in or keep the vehicle at the end of the term.
