Mazda MX-30 EV using Hitachi Astemo motor and inverter

Hitachi Astemo—a joint venture between Hitachi and Honda Motor—announced that its EV motors and inverters were adopted by Mazda Motor Corporation for its first mass-produced electric vehicle, the MX-30 EV, which was launched in Japan in January 2021 and will be heading to California later this year (earlier post).


The front-wheel drive electric motor of the MX-30 EV will provide an output of 107 kW (144 horsepower) and a maximum torque of 271 N·m (200 lb-ft).

The power module utilizes a direct double-sided cooling structure for improved cooling performance to achieve a compact and high performance inverter.
