The MX-30 Leads in Design | Style Meets Sustainability
The MX-30, Mazda’s first all-electric vehicle, combines intricate, select sustainable materials and the brand’s latest powertrain technology to create an EV that is uniquely Mazda.
The use of cork and recycled fabrics speak to Mazda’s commitment to both the environment and craftsmanship.
Mazda is known for its design philosophy and that does not change when it comes to the MX-30’s design. The design philosophy is embodied through the vehicles meticulously sculpted and simple yet stunning form.
Inside and out, the MX-30 emphasizes a new “Human Modern” concept that combines the appeal of futuristic design with a sense of familiarity. The exterior proportions give the crossover a feeling of strength and beauty, while the minimalist style offers a sense of sophistication expected of Mazda vehicles. The new freestyle doors provide a unique view and a refreshing way of experiencing a vehicle.
The interior continues Mazda’s minimalist design language with feelings of lightness and openness. The driver-centric approach displays the latest technologies and controls in a way that is welcoming and helps provide a sense of confidence while driving.
The floating center console is a new design that features an electronic shifter, a familiar multi-function commander knob, and shortcut buttons that help occupants safely operate the Mazda Connect infotainment system.
In front of the center console is a new 7-inch touchscreen that displays the climate control panel. The touchscreen is flanked on each side by tactile push buttons that also operate the climate control.
The MX-30’s well-crafted interior extends to its digital experience. Mazda Connected Services allow users to monitor and control that state of the vehicle remotely through the MyMazda App. This includes locking the doors and adjusting the climate control as well as checking the battery status and charging process.
Unique Sustainable Materials
Mazda prides itself on craftsmanship and blending complex, quality materials to develop elegant interiors. This attention to detail is evident in the MX-30.
For the first time ever, cork makes a special appearance in both the new floating center console and the door grips. Its use does more than add texture and visual warmth to the cabin and it is a subtle nod to Mazda’s commitment to the environment as cork is one of the most highly renewable and eco-friendly resources available. Beyond its environmental impact, using cork has an especially significant meaning to Mazda as it also pays homage to our origin as a cork manufacturing company more than 100 years ago.
In creating this open-feeling cabin, Mazda paid particular attention to selecting the right materials for each space. While the console tray is the perfect spot for showcasing cork, the door trim features an airy texture thanks to a material made from recycled plastic bottles. Warm grey upholstery is accented by tan stitching that nods to the earth-toned cork details. Combined, the MX-30’s interior offers a subtle, mature design that is all at once airy and welcoming.
