Spanish Experts from km77 magazine conducted tests of agility for Mazda MX-30 electric SUV. During the “moose test“, the first electric car of the Japanese brand has demonstrated successful handling at a speed of 75 kilometers per hour.
The “Moose Test” is one of the most challenging tests for cars. During the test, specialists check the stability of models during sharp maneuvers. The car must follow a given trajectory and make abrupt changes without knocking over cones. Such a test is designed to demonstrate the behavior of the car at an unexpected obstacle on the road.
During the first attempt Mazda MX-30 was moving at a speed of 75 kilometers per hour. Electric car made a sharp maneuver almost perfectly, only slightly touching the first cone with the right front wheel. In the second race the speed of the car was reduced to 74 kilometers per hour. This time, the electric SUV performed the exercises without flaw.
Then, Spanish experts decided to make a test more challenging. In the third attempt, Mazda MX-30 was sent to perform “moose test” at a speed of 79 kilometers per hour. At this speed, the car began to enter heavily. And because of aggressive steerage, in the process of movement it began to interfere with the car’s electronics. As a result, the electric car went beyond the limits of the cone-bound track. At the same time, Mazda MX-30 performed the “snake” exercise with exemplary accuracy. At the end of the tests, experts called the results of the electric SUV “satisfactory”.
