The new-generation Mazda3 and the Mazda CX-30 compact sports crossover started well on the market. The both are expected to become global sales drivers of the brand in 2020.
Summing up the sales for three quarters of 2020, Mazda Motor Europe drew attention to a large number of positive reviews for the latest generation Mazda3 and the all-new CX-30 SUV. As noted, both products will well be able to boost the company’s sales worldwide over the next year.
The Mazda CX-30 will soon go on sale in the United States. U.S. pricing has not been announced yet. The crossover has good chances to be liked by Americans, since the compact SUV segment in the country is growing rapidly.
The Mazda3 now comes with an innovative fuel-efficient Skyactiv-X engine that delivers 180 hp and reaches a peak torque of 224 Nm (165 lb-ft). The average Skyactiv-X’s fuel consumption will be about 4.3 l/100 km (54.7 mpg).
Moreover, Mazdas’s first all-electric car – the MX-30 – enters the market in the 2nd half of 2020. Customers in Europe can already make reservations. Mazda hopes the model will be successful.
The MX-30 uses an e-Skyactiv drivetrain. The range is near 200 km (124 miles). An average European driver covers about 48 km (30 miles) per day, an American – a little more, but, in any case, the Mazda MX-30’s driving range is enough. Prices will be announced later.
Both the Skyactiv-X engine and the MX-30 EV contribute in eco-friendly future of the automotive industry.
Mazda reports that it sold 731,000 vehicles worldwide from April 1 to September 30, 2019, including 202,000 sales in the USA and 121,000 – in Europe.
