2022 Mazda MX-30 vs. Its Competition

2022 Mazda MX-30
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Mazda’s MX-30 will emerge just as automakers ramp up battery range and downsize EV prices.

The rivals for the MX-30 include the marvy Kona Electric and the expensive Niro EV, both of which offer more than double the MX-30’s battery driving range.

The VW ID.4 hatchback handily outpoints the Mazda too, but so far we’re not fond of its buggy interface.

The Mini Cooper SE has an instantly recognizable profile, but gets hamstrung by its 110 miles of electric driving range.

Quick Specs
The 2022 Mazda MX-30 puts the Japanese automaker in the battery-electric race, but it’s already running behind.
6.8
The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is hard to find in some U.S. markets, but it's one of the best affordable long-range electric vehicles.
6.6
The 2021 Niro EV offers a roomy layout and a long driving range, but it might not add up to the stunning value elsewhere in the Kia lineup.
7.0
The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 gives families the right formula for saying farewell to tailpipe emissions, but the cabin tech could use some smoothing over.
