The Auto Trader expert verdict:
The Mazda MX-30 is a pure electric crossover with stylish looks inside and out and plenty of appealingly distinctive features, rear-hinged passenger doors for the back seats included. In style terms it competes with the fashion-conscious Honda E and Mini Electric but is more practical than both and more distinctive than the Peugeot e-2008 or Renault Zoe you might also consider at this level. The small battery and limited range are an issue, though.
Reasons to buy:
- Competitively priced
- Distinctive and stylish
- Fun to drive
