Funny story from my father at the end: He managed to confuse the electric parking brake by accidentally pressing the button while driving. I don't know what he did exactly, because the car overreacted massively and totally hilarious: It desperately wanted to go to a Peugeot dealer, automatically setting the navigation target to the nearest one. One or two reboots of the car got rid of the error and the self-thinking navigation. The next day, someone from the Peugeot assistance called via the phone assistance function in the car and asked why they didn't go to have the car repaired. Welcome to the future...
Which is more due to the accelerator curve / programming that mazda specifically put on the electric motor! 107 kW electric is plenty, even at that weight (more on that below). But mazda specifically tailored the motor response to be more in line of what would be expected in an ICE car. to me, that's dumb. but it may as well be smart in regards to the general population. same with the tiny battery tbh: to me, that's dumb (because the car is neither light nor cheap because of it).So it accelerates like a normal car.
ONLY!? my car is only ~1850 kg in comparison and has more than twice the battery! that mazda abomination is heavy as ****it also means that the car weighs "only" 1750 kg.
This baffles me about the MX-30 and the Honda E as well. They have tiny batteries, yet manage to be similar to or heavier than a SR Model 3, a Kona, a Bolt and a whole bunch of other EVs with much larger battery packs. And at least the Honda is a bespoke EV platform, so it's not even a packaging problem with stuffing EV into a ICE chassis... I don't get it really.ONLY!? my car is only ~1850 kg in comparison and has more than twice the battery! that mazda abomination is heavy as ****
