It was already known that Mazda’s first electric model MX-30 would be launched with a relatively small battery (35.5 kWh) and a correspondingly modest range of 200 kilometres. Now we know that the manufacturer is taking other measures to ensure that driving an EV won’t feel too different from a standard combustion vehicle.

This choice goes significantly beyond the scope of a simple cosmetic issue, as Mazda engineers went so far to limit the electric motor from delivering too much torque so that the difference to a car with a combustion engine is not too “dramatic”.
