Mazda unveiled the electric car MX-30 at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, but the battery pack is only 35.5KWh and the standard range is only 200 kilometers. Subsequently, the MX-30 was bombarded by some keyboard electric cars. After all, even the 100-degree model S, which has a 660-kilometer range, still struggles to fully ease mileage anxiety, not to mention the MX-30. In response, Christian Schultze, director of Mazda’s European Institute, expressed his view.
Schultze’s point is interesting, saying Mazda is looking at all carbon footprints that include manufacturing and energy consumption processes. If you have a 90kWh battery pack like Tesla’s, the actual car will actually produce a higher CO2 emissions.
Schultze said the MX-30 of the 35.5KWh battery pack was a reasonable capacity option for environmental protection, and even replacing a new battery pack after 100,000 miles of travel would still have less carbon emissions than the petrol Mazda 3.
Of course, Mr. Schultz’s comments have also been criticised for making the idea that Mazda is not giving consumers the power to cut emissions from factories and power generation, a dangerous and damaging idea for corporate brands.
