🚗💨🇸🇪 “Micro-Might”: Volvo Unveils Its Cutest EV Bad Boy, the EX30!
Volvo’s tinier than tiny all-electric SUV, the EX30, has just made its grand entrance! Not only is it the smallest EV on Volvo’s lot, but it’s also packing an environmental punch with the tiniest carbon footprint of any Volvo vehicle. This Swedish speedster comes equipped with cutting-edge features, a rather cool 275-mile range, and an affordable price tag to boot! And, wait for it…it’s expected to be the fastest Volvo EVER. 🏎️💨
Swedish auto giant Volvo is no stranger to electric vehicles, but its newest creation, the EX30, is making waves for being the smallest yet. Just imagine a Chihuahua with the heart of a Great Dane. That’s the EX30 for you, a compact SUV that’s ready to take the world by storm while being kind to Mama Earth. But don’t let the size fool you; this pint-sized powerhouse is bursting with features and, surprisingly, it’s being touted as potentially the fastest Volvo ever! 🚀
The EX30 is the fourth child in Volvo’s all-electric family, following in the footsteps of the XC40 Recharge, C40 Recharge, and the yet-to-be-released midsize EX90. It’s a symbol of Volvo’s commitment to stop producing gas-guzzling cars by 2030 and further cements its role as a leader in EV innovation. But the real question is, does size really matter when it comes to EVs? 🤔
As you’d expect from any Volvo, the EX30 is all about style. It boasts the classic Thor’s Hammer headlights, Swedish-inspired colors like Cloud Blue and Moss Yellow, and a design that is undeniably Volvo. Remember, all this is coming in a package smaller than any Volvo ever made! The EX30 has got small stature but a big personality. And while we’re on the subject, what’s your take on the trend of small SUVs? Love it or loathe it?
Moving onto the juicy details, the EX30 will be available with two powertrain options. The Single Motor Extended Range version is expected to offer a 275-mile range and uses a lithium, nickel, manganese, and cobalt battery. Meanwhile, the Twin Motor Performance version will use the same battery coupled with a second e-motor for all-wheel drive and is expected to output a whopping 422 horsepower, enough to get from zero-to-60 in 3.4 seconds. Now, who said electric cars can’t be exhilarating? 💥
Volvo hasn’t neglected its reputation for safety with this new model. On top of typical Volvo safety features, there’s a door alert for oncoming cyclists and runners, a more effective seat belt system, and a crash-ready design. The tech inside is equally impressive, with Google built-in as the native infotainment system and a Park Pilot Assist system for those pesky parallel parking moments. Now, wouldn’t that be a game-changer in city parking? 🅿️🌆
Now, we know you’re all dying to know the price. Well, Volvo has listed the EX30 with a starting price of $34,950. If you’re across the pond in Europe, a subscription option, called Care by Volvo, is available for 599 Euros per month. An adventure version, the EX30 Cross Country, will be available to order in 2024. It features higher ground clearance, 19-inch wheels, and an adventurous look for those off-road thrills.
