Bermaz Motor, the sole distributor of Mazda vehicles in Malaysia has opened for booking the fully imported (CBU), fully-electric MX-30 crossover in two variants – Mid and High – with prices starting from RM198,780.

The Mazda MX-30 comes with a 5-year/100,000km manufacturer warranty, whichever comes first along with an 8-year/160,000 km EV battery warranty, whichever comes first.
Built on the CX-30 platform, the fully electric MX-30 is fitted with a 35.5 kWh battery, to power an electric motor that drives the front wheels. The combination produces 143 hp and 271 Nm and is expected to return up to 199 km of electric driving range.
