The news sounds amazing until we find out that the manufacturer is in a difficult situation. If he provides updated data in promotional materials, the first charge is that he is misleading consumers.

According to Germany’s Westfallen-Blatt, it is an EC type certificate valid in every EU country. Mazda insists that there is no problem with the vehicles and that less than 1,000 vehicles are affected. The company must stop submitting them until it receives the updated document.

In Germany, the standard subsidy for electric cars only applies until the end of the year, from 2023 it will be reduced, which is why the buyer can lose up to EUR 3,000 (equivalent to PLN 14,000) for each late collection. Fortunately, the German branch of the manufacturer promised customers that it would compensate them for any losses.
