Ongoing restrictions, an

uncertain future and a lack of

The service has been reliant

on the availability of volunteer

drivers and operates through a

pre-booking system administered

by Jeanette Stanley.

Stanley said running the service

became “increasingly difficult”

due to lockdowns, ongoing

It is the first time Tyro

has been picked for the New

it is the second time she will

Said Jack: “It’s just crazy to

Ava agrees: “It’s such an

over the years has paid off,”

Enemy at the Gates

Part of A Mitch Rapp Novel

By Vince Flynn and Kyle Mills

The latest compulsive thriller in the New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series.

America is reeling from the national blackout that swept the nation, continuing to dig out

of the power outage. And the new president is unlike any Mitch has worked with in the

past; he is extremely dictatorial and sees cracks in America’s democratic institutions that

he believes can be exploited to put his family in power permanently.

As Mitch backs away from the new president, he, in turn, questions Rapp’s loyalty. Mitch

decides to take a much needed break and moves to his house in Cape Town, where

he gets pulled into a job with Nicholas Ward, the world’s first trillionaire. It has been

discovered that there is a mole in the CIA who’s been digging through their systems

for information on Ward so, after thwarting an attempt to kidnap him Uganda, Mitch

makes it look like the abduction was successful. The hope is that this will give Rapp the

freedom to track down the person who has been able to gain such deep access into the

CIA’s mainframe.

Rapp, completely cut off from the agency, must uncover the identity of the mole and

deal with him. But the situation is deeper and more complex than he ever could have

imagined, involving the President of the United States himself.

New wharf plan details revealed

A CONCEPT design to replace

the 134-year-old Akaroa Wharf

will be presented to the Banks

Peninsula Community Board on


The concept design, which the

public and stakeholders were

consulted on in January, will see

the wharf rebuilt in the same location

and of the same length as

the existing wharf (155m), with

concrete piles and structure and

timber decking.

Its deck would be raised about

0.60m from the present height

to account for sea level rise and

the width increased from 7.3m

to 8m, whilst an additional

pontoon structure will bring the

total number to three.

It is proposed the wharf would

continue to provide access to

fuel, and future provision for

electrical charging is being considered.

The city council is working

with commercial wharf users on

how they can continue to operate

during the replacement works.

Akaroa Fishermens Association

president John Wright spoke

to the community board about

the issue in a previous meeting.

He said the economic livelihood

of commercial wharf users

is critical to the wellbeing of the


Wright said providing a

temporary structure should have

been a priority and he felt there

was a better alternative to the

city council’s proposed rebuild of

Drummonds jetty.

He put forth an option that

would see the new wharf still

built in the vicinity of Church

St and the Britomart area, but

not in the exact location of the

present wharf. Wright said people

could then make use of the

many existing amenities on the

old wharf while the replacement

work was being undertaken.

Work on a replacement wharf

has been under way since a

structural assessment of the

iconic landmark in late 2018

found it was reaching the end of



its viable life and it was no longer

economical to keep repairing

and maintaining it.

The damage occurred after

We’re sticking to

our game plan


With consultation now open on the Draft

Annual Plan 2022/23, Christchurch City Council

is encouraging people to share their views on

whether its budget strikes the right chord.

The Draft Annual Plan outlines what the Council

plans to spend on projects and day-to-day services

over the coming financial year and how the work

will be financed.

Since our Long Term Plan (LTP) 2021–31 was

confirmed last year, the economic environment

in Ōtautahi Christchurch has been affected by

the same factors the whole world is navigating as

we live with COVID-19 – inflation, supply chain

issues, productivity challenges and more. We

also have significant Government reforms on the


Striking the right balance

Our books are balanced and we’re committed

to doing the basics and doing them well whilst

keeping costs as low as possible for ratepayers.

In line with residents’ feedback we’ve prioritised

spending on our water supply network, our

transport network including roads and footpaths

and our facilities. All this has been considered

through the lens of climate change.

We’re in a changing environment and being

realistic about what we can deliver has been key

to this budget. We’ve reviewed the whole capital

programme with a focus on deliverability and

affordability – if we’re not likely to be able to


the work

in 2022/23,

there’s no

need to charge the ratepayer right now.

The main proposals in the Draft Annual Plan


• An average proposed rates increase for a

typical household of 4.86%. A typical house is

one with a capital value of $508,608.

• An overall average rate increase across all

ratepayers of 4.96% – slightly less than the

4.97% indicated in the LTP.

• Operational expenditure of $527.5 million and

capital expenditure of $615.5 million.

• Borrowing for the capital programme is $54

million less than planned.

We’re also consulting on other matters which affect

our budget, including a proposed rate increase

on vacant central city land, and some proposed

changes to our kerbside collection service.

Finding the right balance together

Creating a budget for a growing city like

Christchurch is always a balancing act – we think

we have that balance right, but before we can say

that, we need to know what the community thinks.

Visit ccc.govt.nz/annualplan for all the details, and

to have your say by 18 April.

All the feedback will be considered by councillors

before we finalise the budget in June.

BUSINESS IN the front, party in the back.

The promise of a mullet is all it took for

Diamond Harbour locals to put hands in


It’s business as usual for Diamond

Harbour Four Square owner James Grant

– but with a new hair cut that has so far

raised $2700 for the Diamond Harbour

Volunteer Fire Brigade, and put a smile on

locals’ faces.

The owners of the small store, Grant and

his partner Laura Palmer wanted to cheer

their customers up with something a little

lighthearted while raising money for the

fire brigade.

Grant was well overdue a haircut and

agreed that firefighter Jeremy Palmer

could cut his hair into a mullet if they hit

the goal of raising $2000 in two weeks.

Donations flooded in as updates

Diamond Harbour fire chief Bob Palmer

felt humbled by the community support.

“It just really shows what a great

community we’ve got. We’re lucky to have

people like James and Laura with their fun

fundraisers,” Palmer said.

The Four Square also donated fresh

oysters to new fish and chip shop Salt,

which battered and sold the oysters then

donated the funds back to the mullet


“It’s the little things like that that make

us so proud of our community,” said

FOUR YEARS of community fundraising

has paid off for the Diamond Harbour

Volunteer Fire Brigade as it welcomes a

new edition to its fleet.

A Toyota Land Cruiser four-wheel-drive

double cab, with a specially designed tray

for all the fire brigade needs, arrived in

Diamond Harbour over the weekend.

Over the past four years, the community

has been working to raise the $120,000

needed for the purpose-built vehicle.

Fire brigade volunteers will now be able

to drive over rugged terrain and reach

areas they have previously had to get to by


Diamond Harbour Four Square owners

James Grant and Laura Palmer were key to

the fundraising efforts, including organising

a ‘Big Quiz’ that kick-started things,

with over $15,000 raised.

This, along with both large and small

donations, funding raising such as cake

stalls, barbecues and mullet hair cuts,

helped to reach the total.

One woman even donated $10,000


“So many people have got on board

over the last few years to support us,” said

Diamond Harbour fire chief Bob Palmer.

“We’re blown away really,”

More equipment will be added over

time with the leftover money, including a

calls to


LPC welcomes the muchanticipated

addition of ZIM

line’s first call to the South

Island. The first vessel in the

service, CONTSHIP ONO,

arrived in February, then

continued its route to Napier.

Lyttelton will be one of five stops for the

line, with the route also including Auckland

and Napier in New Zealand and Australia’s

Sydney and Melbourne ports.

With transshipment available in Sydney

to ports in China and Southeast Asia, it gives

Canterbury exporters a streamlined option to

get their goods to global markets.

LPC’s General Manager Container

Operations Simon Munt says that, as the

busiest South Island container port, the ZIM

service will only enhance LPC’s offering.

“Combined with our ongoing

infrastructure investment, LPC continues to

support freight growth in the region.”

The ZIM service, arriving in Lyttelton

every three weeks, will provide flexibility

and reliability to Canterbury and the wider

South Island market, especially as the effects

of COVID-19 continue to impact global

supply chains. ISS-McKay General Manager

David Mitchell says they are happy to be here

in Lyttelton, wanting to support the

Christchurch market and grow with them.

“Going forward, we are planning to make

our visits more regular. I think a lot of people

just think we are here for the short- term

gain, but we’re here to stay. We’re going great,

and if we had more vessels, then we would

put them into Lyttelton.

“We are agile, we are people-focused

and that resonates with the New Zealand

market,” says David.

The new line, which will service both dry

and refrigerated containers, demonstrates

the power of Canterbury’s growing economy,

and we look forward to what the future holds

for ZIM in the South Island.

Permit Office is striving to

take safety to the next level.



a lifelong


When Euan started painting

cranes as a student in 1981,

he didn’t know that would

be the start of a lifelong

career at LPC.

Now our Electrical Foreman, Euan has spent

the past 40 years at LPC and, unsurprisingly,

has seen some great changes.

“I left school to start an electrician

apprenticeship with the Lyttelton Harbour

Board, which took me four years.

“We looked after the electrical reticulation

for the wharves, the offices and our

equipment like the crane and tugs.

“Back then, we still had steam-powered

equipment, with teams shoving coal in to

keep it going,” says Euan.

Euan moved into the foreman role after

the earthquake in 2012, stepping up to help

everyone get through the challenges ahead.

“I think that’s what’s been good about this

position. Understanding the management

side was a challenge at first, but having

worked here for so long, I really understand

both sides of the relationship, which has

helped me a lot,” says Euan.

Another one of Euan’s biggest challenges is

how the industry has advanced.

“Our changes aren’t small. We move

forward in a way that we have leaps and

bounds with technology.

“The Port is always modernising, which

means, new plant, new berths and new


For Euan, that’s one of the things that’s

kept him here all these years.

“There is always something to learn, and

LPC is great at giving myself and the team

opportunities to train and to pick up new

skills,” says Euan.

A highlight for Euan was going to Ireland

for three weeks to learn about our ship to

shore container cranes.

“About 15 years ago, I went over to spend

time at Liebherr to train with their team so

I could support the new crane builds back in


“It felt great when the company chose me

to go over. That was an amazing experience,”

says Euan.

Looking to the future, sustainability has

also become a part of Euan’s role.

“There’s a need to monitor our

consumption to help us understand how we

use power at the Port. It’s been interesting

working with different teams here and

across our stakeholders to help support our

sustainability targets,” says Euan.

Another thing Euan loves about the Port is

the people.

“The team here really

goes the distance.

In what can be a highpressure


we always get the job

done and make things

work – they take a lot

of pride in that.”

As someone who was raised in Lyttelton,

Euan has always had a connection to

the Port.

“It helps drive me to do my best work. I

know how important the Port is, and it’s great

knowing that all the hard work I put in now

will benefit people in the future.

“Knowing that, when you walk away, you’ve

built it to a high standard, built it to last,

that’s a pretty great feeling,” says Euan.

LPC's Infrastructure

Services team provide

a cage for a Port User

to significantly reduce

possible fall risks.

Part of the Authority to Work programme,

our Permit Office is a central hub for all Port

users and contractors who will be completing

work across any of our sites.

Businesses coming on site to carry out

work need to first apply to the Permit Office

so we can have a clear understanding of

when and where the work is taking place.

The concept is rooted in health and safety,

with the new visibility allowing us to work

alongside contractors to make sure best

practice is taking place across LPC’s sites.

Permit Officer Sam Hart says the

Authority to Work programme has made

a huge difference in managing high-risk

activity across the Port.

“The thing to remember is that the Port

is a really busy environment, with multiple

activities happening every day – whether

it’s operating a crane in the inner harbour

or completing pavement works in our new

eastern development.

“This new system allows us to have an

overview of where work will be happening

to prevent conflicts of works and help

businesses complete their jobs safely.”

With 170 permits issued in January alone,

Port users’ uptake to the programme is

pleasing to see.

“At first, there were a few nerves around

the system, but it really has improved LPC’s

relationship with Port users, and now we’re

finding a lot of people are becoming more

proactive, which is awesome to see,” Sam says.

This oversight also allows us to bring in our

subject matter experts when needed and even

stop work happening if we think it’s unsafe.

Health and safety will always be a priority

at LPC, and we are proud to continue to

support our Port users and create a safe

environment for everyone who works here.

first day at Ports of




at red

After 2 years at the helm, CEO Roger Gray has now spent his last


day at LPC. Roger is an important part of the LPC whānau, and

we wish him the best for his next journey as he takes on the

role of CEO of Ports of Auckland.

“I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved

in the two years that I’ve been CEO here at

LPC,” says Roger.

“We have exceeded our targets, which

is a demonstration of the hard work that

happens at the Port.”

Through his time in Lyttelton, Roger has

overseen the beginnings of a workplace

culture transformation, huge investment

in infrastructure including the new eastern

development and record-breaking container

volumes through the terminal.

“We made a commitment to improve

our profitability, and I think we’re doing a

fantastic job towards that. We are seeing

record volumes through the Port, and I’m

deeply confident that we are in the right

position to continue this,” says Roger.

Roger says another highlight was the work

being done around the Maria Dew QC report

and workplace culture changes.

“Culture and the change journey that we’re

on with whanaungatanga is complicated and

challenging. But I’ve been amazingly proud

of the way so many of us have joined in and

said, yes, we want to make this place better

and we can.

“The thing I’m probably most proud of is

our commitment to High Performance High

Engagement (HPHE) and the fact that we

have signed with three of our unions and

we’re committed to moving forward in a

cooperative manner where we work with our

collective interests at heart and we get stuff

done for the benefit of everybody,” says Roger.

“I will thoroughly miss working in the

beautiful harbour, as well as all the people I

have met along the way. Lyttelton is a strong

community, and it’s been fantastic to see their

support for our operations and the work we

do to be a good neighbour,” says Roger.

In his final farewells to LPC employees,

Roger says that the reality is we are all just

stewards of the Port.

“The Port was here long before we arrived,

and it will certainly be here long after we

leave so be proud of our history, be proud of

what you’re doing and also look forward to

the future,” says Roger.

In December, the Board announced then

GM of People and Safety Kirstie Gardener as

acting CEO, and she will continue in this role

while the recruitment process for a new CEO

takes place.

“ The Port was

here long

before we

arrived, and it

will certainly

be here long

after we leave

so be proud of

our history, be

proud of what

you’re doing

and also look

forward to

the future,”

says Roger.

As the national response to

COVID-19 adapts and evolves,

LPC continues to reposition

ourselves to ensure we are

doing everything we can to

protect our workforce and the

wider community.

We recognise our role in Canterbury’s supply

chain, and with the increasing number of

community cases, our COVID-19 response

team works hard to understand how we can

ensure the Port remains operational with

Omicron in the community.

The health and safety of our teams

remains our top priority, with our focus on

reducing the spread. To enable this, we have

separated working groups, reduced contact

between different departments, increased

mask use and supported working from home.

Earlier this year, we also took another

step in our layers of protection by requiring

everyone entering LPC to be fully vaccinated.

Taking effect on 31 January 2022, the new

requirements mean that visitors, contractors,

truck drivers and Port users have to provide

a vaccine pass to be allowed entry across all

our sites.

This requirement comes after the same was

required of all LPC staff in November 2021.

After identifying growing

numbers of marine pest

fanworms in Whakaraupō,

LPC joined with the Whaka

Ora Healthy Harbour project

to put into place an immediate

response action plan.

Three months on, and the swift response has

seen 883 fanworms removed from the inner


The pest poses a significant ecological

threat to native biodiversity, mahinga kai and

commercial marine farming operations.

The response was carried out by a

combination of divers at LPC and Diving

Services New Zealand, who were funded by

Whaka Ora.

Together, they tackled phase one, targeting

five key areas identified in previous surveys.

LPC Environmental Business Partner

Kirsty Brennan says the efforts to date are

going to have a significant impact on the

fanworm population.

“Of the 883 worms that were removed,

83% were of reproductive size, which is the

ideal timing as it makes it difficult for any

remaining worms to be successful.

“It’s been great to get a better

understanding of the spread of the fanworm

to know where we need to target next,” says


With Diving Services New Zealand also

coming on board, the harbour has benefited

from the use of a remotely operated vehicle


The ROV was a great tool for reaching

areas that were unsafe for the dive teams

such as our decommissioned wharves.

Although COVID-19 has slowed down the

response, LPC is gearing up for phase two.

It is important that we carry on this work,

surveying and clearing the remaining areas.

LPC remains committed to the response,

with the long-term surveying led by

Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and

Environment Canterbury.

“A partnership framework for marine

biosecurity that allows for early detection

and response to marine biosecurity issues is

vital in the long-term success of this project,”

says Kirsty.

Having taken the Clean

Marina Pledge, Te Ana

Marina is committed to

keeping the water around

it clean and healthy.

To aid in this, the team has implemented a

new water quality monitoring programme to

learn more about what’s in the water around

the marina.

The pledge is an internationally

recognised standard that dedicates Te Ana to

creating and administering environmental

management systems that promote a healthy

and vibrant environment.

Marina Manager Matt Blythe says the

testing will help us look at the water over

time to ensure we expand on the positive

impact we have.

“We want to protect the coastal and

marine environment and support marine life,

especially as Te Ana continues to grow.

Currently, nine sites are monitored twice

a week.

Environmental Business Partner Kirsty

Brennan says parameters such as dissolved

oxygen and pH levels are measured using

hand-held instruments as well as samples

that are analysed in a lab for suspended

sediment dissolved metals, faecal bacteria,

and nutrients.

“Collecting the results over a long period of

time can indicate when something is causing

the environment to change and will help

identify areas of pollution.”

“There are a range of activities that can

impact water quality, including runoff from

recreational vessels and industrial activities

as well as shipping and tidal movements,”

says Kirsty

“We are also looking to understand more

about how rain events impact the water

quality by delivering sediment, nutrients and

other pollutants into the harbour.”

The Clean Marina Pledge also extends

outside of the water and looks at things like

waste management, pests and weeds, and


“The marina is a wonderful place for the

community to spend time, and I want to

Upsizing to your next home: How to be smart about it

THE HOUSING boom of 2021

has meant many Kiwis have

benefited from huge capital gains,

and now have the opportunity to

capitalise on the equity in their

existing home.

And Covid-19 has certainly

drilled home the need for space.

Upsizing can mean different

things to different people. Some

might want a rumpus room for

a teen who is at uni, while others

might want somewhere with

office space, or perhaps a property

with land where they can add a

self-contained space.

Before you start looking for

a bigger home, ask yourself

how you want to live and what

If for you, upsizing means

you consider separation of space.

This could mean a living room

Club officials are predicting a

big year for the side and other

Sumner teams, which have

Said head coach Jake Mangin:

“Our colts remain our critical

and Ollie Lewis who are

playing for the Wave this season.

Little River sisters going big

on the national stage

For the Bremner sisters Alana and Chelsea, the last

few weeks have been a whirlwind experience. Fresh

from earning 2022 Black Ferns contracts, the two

sisters were also a part of the inaugural Matatū squad

for Super Rugby Aupiki, with younger sister Alana

captaining the side. The Bremners, who grew up in

Little River, have certainly carved an outstanding path

between the two of them.

However, despite being family, their journeys to

playing for Canterbury, Matatū and the Black Ferns

vary considerably. While Alana played junior rugby for

Banks Peninsula, Chelsea played netball as a junior for

Tai Tapu Netball Club.

“We were really lucky growing up as Mum would load

us all in the car to give any sport a go that we wanted

to try.” Chelsea said. She never quite tried rugby as a

junior however, beginning her rugby journey in 2016,

encouraged by Alana to come along to one of Lincoln

University’s first women’s training sessions to help fill

the numbers.

“I went along to training one day because Lincoln University had

just started a team and they were short on numbers, so Alana

convinced me to come along. I went along to my first training and

absolutely loved it!”

Despite the unconventional start to her

rugby career, Chelsea has gone from

strength to strength. “I was really lucky

to be picked up by Canterbury Rugby

and they obviously saw some potential

in me.” said Chelsea. “Another thing is I

have had amazing coaches, which has

really helped.”

Since that first training session in

2016, Chelsea has continued to push

herself through the rugby pathways,

from joining the Canterbury Women’s

High Performance Academy, becoming

a mainstay in the Canterbury Farah

Palmer Cup forward pack and starting

all three Games of the inaugural Matatū

Super Rugby Aupiki campaign. 2022 is

set to be a big year as Chelsea looks to

cement a spot in the Black Ferns World

Cup squad.

“I’m really excited (for the 2022

season), we’ve got a few Black Ferns

camps coming up so it’s a great

opportunity to back up from starting at

such a high level (with the introduction of Super Rugby Aupiki).”

While the season poses to be a big one, Chelsea will remain

connected to her Lincoln University Ewes side as they prepare for

their Canstaff Premier Women’s campaign. “We’ve got a really good

culture at Lincoln University, so I know us

Black Ferns girls will be heading to trainings

to help where we can and stay connected

with the social side of the team.” said


No matter your experience, Chelsea

Bremner provides a great example that

giving it a go can’t hurt, with rugby now

providing experiences for her on a national

and hopefully playing alongside her sister on

the international stage in what is a big year

for women’s rugby.

Clubs throughout the region are looking for

players, with registrations now open across

the region for those wanting to play, coach,

referee or belong this winter!

EVEN THE most modest

looking of artefacts from the Te

Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum

collection can convey important

stories. This piece of baleen is

both a symbol of a significant

early industry in Aotearoa and of

shifting attitudes towards the use

of natural resources.

Baleen is made of keratin, the

same material that human skin,

hair and fingernails are made

of. Whales which use a baleen

filtering methodology to feed

include the blue, bowhead, right,

humpback, minke and grey


The baleen is attached to plates

in their upper jaw creating a

sieve-like mechanism. They

take in large quantities of water

through their open mouths then

force the water out with their

tongues, leaving krill, small fish

and even birds trapped behind

the fringe of baleen to then

be swallowed. Early whalers

referred to baleen as whalebone

– a misnomer that became


Baleen is strong and quite

flexible and, in the era before

plastics, it was used in many

domestic items, including

umbrella frames, corset stays,

crinoline petticoats, collar

stiffeners, back scratchers, buggy

whips, baskets, chimney brooms

and to press paper.

From the 1830s, the first

significant contact between

Maori and Europeans in

Whakaraupō / Lyttelton

Harbour was with American,

French, English and Australian

whalers who plied the waters

off Banks Peninsula to hunt the

many whales which travelled the

coastline from colder to warmer

waters to feed and breed.

As at other early settlements

throughout Aotearoa, mana

whenua traded water, firewood,

pork and potatoes for blankets,

biscuits, firearms and alcohol

and there was intermarriage

between European whalers and

local women.

Numbers of Maori men were

engaged either at shore whaling

stations or onboard ships.

In 1836, a whaling station

was established at the head

of the harbour at Waitata /

Little Port Cooper by Captain

Hempleman of the brig “Bee”.

In spite of not having a jetty, it

was used by ships for respite or

to haul out and process their

catch; rendering down the

blubber into barrels of whale

oil and extracting the valuable

Treasures from the past: Whale of a resource


of baleen from a small whale (date






Several whalers were buried

in this exposed bay with whale

bones used to mark their graves.

Although the bay remains

accessible only by sea or on foot

today, intrepid visitors still occasionally

sight whale bones on the

beach. The heyday for whaling

around the peninsula was relatively

short lived – a period of

about 40 years. Soberingly, this

was due to the fact that whale

numbers had been so decimated

that hunting was no longer a

viable undertaking.

Up to three million whales

were slaughtered worldwide in

the 19th and early 20th centuries

to feed humankind’s insatiable

appetite for oil and other

by-products like baleen.

Whaling in New Zealand

did not completely end until

1965 when Perano station at

Tory Channel closed, having

caught more than 4000 mainly

humpback whales during its 53-

year operation.

The New Zealand Government

was a founding member of

the International Whaling

Commission in 1946. Whales

in New Zealand waters are

now protected by the Marine

Mammals Protection Act 1978.

There is a strong anti-whaling

sentiment in the population, and

Technology blends in Mazda MX-30

WHEN MY SON purchased his

Mazda RX7 turbo it rekindled my

interest in the rotary engine.

You see, I’ve always been

interested in owning an RX8, but

have always wondered how it

would be living with the freestyle

rear doors on a daily basis.

Well, now I know. I had

Mazda’s new MX-30 hybrid sport

utility vehicle for almost three

weeks and learned to accept the

quirks of the rear doors on a daily

basis, I found them to be quite

manageable, even in close confine


Rear hinged doors are a bit

of a departure from the norm,

although you may be interested to

know that even some Rolls-Royce

models are sold with them today.

Mazda has used them to good

effect previously in the RX8 and

some Bounty light commercial

utes, and if my memory was

good enough I should have

remembered that style when my

family had an old Jowett Javelin

in the early 60s, but because I was

only a child at the time I don’t.

The MX-30, though, is a

different concept again, it is a

small-to-medium SUV that

explores new boundaries for

Mazda, it comes fully electric or,

as in the test car’s case, as a mild


I evaluated the EV in

December and enjoyed its ease

of use, practicality and concept.

It’s a model that fits well with

the expectation of the modern

electric vehicle buyer and,

what’s more, it qualifies for the

Government’s clean car subsidy

of $8625, making its $74,990

price tag quite tempting.

The hybrid on the other hand,

doesn’t qualify or any discount

although it may become eligible

for a rebate this year when

it is proposed that a range

of discounts and fees will be

introduced by the Government

based on CO2 ratings. It lists at


It’s fair to say the MX-30 hybrid

is only a mild hybrid, the lithiumion

battery pack is charged by

the regenerative energy you get

while braking, and the storage is

only there to power the ancillaries

and assist in acceleration, taking

the load off the engine so that

fuel use is minimised. If you take

into account Mazda’s Skyactiv

programme that has economy

as its ongoing aim, then you can

guarantee the MX-30 hybrid is a

genuinely easy on fuel, and it is

happy to sip away on 91-octane,

which in this day and age of hefty

fuel prices means that savings

over a year are quite real.

Mazda claims a 6.4-litre per

100km combine cycle average.

I was fortunate to be allowed

the MX-30 during the build

up to Christmas, which in the

Kiddie household means a lot of

shopping of provisions for the

ever-groaning pantry and fridges.

That necessitated battling the

inner-city traffic and that is never

good for fuel usage, however the

readouts were constant at around

7l/100km, which I figured was a

good result.

On my highway run the engine

is loping over at just 2250rpm at



rear doors

are well


into the SUV

body style.

100km with the display graphics

registering fuel use of 4l/100km


Mazda claim power outputs of

114kW and 200Nm, which are

about what can be expected these

days from a 2-litre displacement

and are more than adequate

for the MX-30’s role. Drive is

channelled through a traditional

six-speed automatic gearbox

and it, too, is a beauty through

its simplicity and undetectable

changes; there are also paddle

shifters should the driver so

desire to take control over the

gear change process.

Other figures that are worth

noting are those of acceleration.

The MX-30 hybrid will tackle a

standstill to 100km/h run in 9sec

and will complete that highway

overtake in 6sec (80-120km/h).

A sport mode will liven engine

ability, but it also makes the

gearbox reluctant to accept top

gear, and that is not want you

want if you are cruising at the

legal road speed limit and trying

to maximise fuel use.

On my highway run the

MX-30 cruised quietly and

efficiently as distance was covered

comfortably. It sits stable on the

road and leans just ever so gently

as the corners are met, the spring

and damper rates set so that

suspension absorption is keen

along with arresting most of the

gravitational force.

Not only does the MX-30

hybrid tick all the boxes of

performance, economy and

handling, it also has all the

• Price – Mazda MX-30

hybrid Limited, $46,790

4395mm; width, 1795mm;

200Nm, six-speed


• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 6.4l/100km

goodies that a buyer would want

from a new generation model.

To simplify Mazda’s

specification levels for both the

hybrid and EV, it goes something

like this, the EV has Takami

specification which means it gets

everything Mazda has in terms of

kit. The hybrid has Limited spec

that is without leather. I’m all for

that, I’m not a big leather trim

fan and the cloth interior of the

hybrid is comfortable and hardwearing.

It must be noted too,

that Mazda as a company

has sustainability as a key

manufacturing ingredient and

the MX-30 has areas of a tasteful

cork-type interior trim material

that I like and Mazda says it is


Elsewhere there is satellite

navigation, head-up display,

keyless entry and ignition,

electric sunroof and radar cruise

control. The latter is part of a

beefy Mazda Safety Sense suite

of kit that easily earns the MX-



system for those

who don’t want

a fully electric


30 a five star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program safety


The MX-30 isn’t a big car, but

it is big on value and what it

does do is convert its compact

proportions into practicality.

Cargo load space is listed at

370-litres, if you fold down the

rear seats that area extends to

a generous 1308-litres, and I

can report that utilising that

entire area will easily house a

hefty supermarket shopping


In terms of rear seat occupant

comfort, well, that is really an

area for those slight of build.

Sure there are three seat belts,

but access through the freestyle

doors requires some technique,

and leg room once in there is at

a premium. Nevertheless, the

MX-30 suited my wife and I well

during the lengthy evaluation.

I particularly enjoyed its

simplicity while knowing

underneath all of the mechanical

elements were working together

to give you the most efficient

driving experience.

If the MX-30’s technical aspects

aren’t tempting enough – EV or

hybrid – there is something else

about buying a Mazda that offers

much peace of mind, and that is

having the company’s three aftersale

packages all included in the

price. They offer free servicing for

up to 100,000km, an unlimited
