Mazda MX-30 R-EV

The Mazda MX-30 R-EV combines the best of both a battery electric vehicle (BEV) and a traditional PHEV. Unlike conventional PHEVs, the petrol engine in the MX-30 R-EV doesn’t directly power the wheels, acting instead as a generator to charge the battery. The lightweight battery, carefully engineered to meet daily needs while minimising environmental impact, contributes to the MX-30’s intuitive handling. The MX-30 R-EV interior features high-quality materials and a spacious layout.

What is a low emissions vehicle?

A low emissions vehicle, also known as an LEV, could refer to a hybrid or plug-in hybrid vehicle. 

A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, or PHEV, combines a conventional internal combustion engine with an electric motor and a rechargeable battery. PHEVs can operate solely on electricity for many miles, and once the battery is depleted, they will switch to using power from their internal combustion engine. 

In a hybrid Mazda, power comes from the hybrid system, which works by recycling energy produced while braking back into the battery. Because of this, you’ll generate zero tailpipe emissions when driving in EV mode. 

How does a hybrid work?

Drive your hybrid like a regular petrol car while the battery charges itself through regenerative braking. Once charged, simply switch to fully electric driving for pure EV miles. Switch between drive modes for the most energy-efficient experience. 

How does a plug-in hybrid work?

A PHEV combines a powerful petrol engine with an electric motor and battery. It also harnesses regenerative braking to change energy typically lost during braking into electricity, storing it in the battery for increased efficiency. 

Benefits of a LEV hybrid and plug-in hybrid

• Produces low CO2 emissions 

• Full EV mode for Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) city driving 

• Drive it like a regular petrol car when the battery is low 

• Enjoy a smooth driving experience
