Mazda’s MX-30 emerges 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, on utility and range.

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

The Nissan Leaf launched with similar range concerns, but the present day version offers over 200 miles now.
