New Mazda MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV (2023) | Visual Review, Exterior, Interior & Infotainment. Take a look at the new 2023 Mazda MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV that was at the 2023 MIMO Milano Monza Motor Show.
One of the key characteristics of rotary engines makes this possible – they’re compact and don’t take up much space. Although our newly-developed rotary engine generator uses an 830 cm³ engine with a maximum output of 55 kW (74 PS) at 4,700 rpm, it is more compact than a reciprocating engine with similar output.
This is what made coaxial placement and integration of the MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV rotary engine with a thin, high output generator and a 125 kW (170 PS) high output motor possible. It enabled us to achieve a compact set-up that fitted in the engine bay easily and didn’t require any compromise in cabin space.
We then combined this compact drive unit with a 17.8 kW lithium-ion battery and a 50 litre petrol tank. As a result, the MX-30 e-Skyactiv R-EV not only offers an 85 km electric-only driving range for everyday needs, but also, due to an ability to generate power using the rotary engine, longer drives without range anxiety, and the same 140 km/h maximum speed as the MX-30 BEV.
