Europe, the MX-30 is on its way.

We were, and remain, smitten with the Mazda MX-30, tour sapa which also happens to be the company's first electric car. While we still don't know if it'll come to America, tour sapa the MX-30 officially entered production on Tuesday.

As the car rolls off the assembly line in Japan, the first units will ship to Europe before the car goes on sale this fall. Those who pull the trigger on the MX-30 will find a 35.5 kilowatt-hour battery, which should muster 124 miles of range on the European test cycle. That figure could be even lower if the vehicle made its way to the US, based on the EPA's test cycle. One of the reasons Mazda may skip the US likely rests in the low range figure, but rumors of an MX-30 with a rotary engine as a range extender persist. That model could find its way to America with the range extender providing more mileage to American drivers' liking.
