The first electric car of the brand will appear by the summer of 2020. However, the company runs the risk of huge fines due to new environmental standards from the beginning of next year. The company is ready for this.

Mazda has to take great risks with continued operations in Europe. The introduction of new environmental standards came at a time when the brand was not yet ready to present its own line of electric cars on the new platform, but would already be required to pay heavy fines for exceeding the level of carbon dioxide emissions.

Almost urgently, on the standard units, an electric version of the compact Mazda CX-30 crossover was created. The model is undergoing various tests and is preparing to enter the market. This should happen in the second quarter of 2020. Up to this point, the brand will be forced to pay huge fines. The company noted that they are ready to work the first half of the year at a loss in the European market.

 The Mazda CX-30 electric crossover will be equipped with a modest battery with a capacity of 35.5 kW * hours, which will allow it to travel up to 200 km at full speed. This is enough for most average drivers. The main problem of the company is the cost. They need to keep a price tag of up to 35,000 euros, after which Tesla cars start.

There are no exact specifications yet.
