Prepare to be amazed: the Volvo EX30 boasts acceleration capabilities that surpass those of a Porsche 911! It's a remarkable combination of Google's advanced technology, rapid charging speeds, and a generously spacious interior. If you're contemplating making the switch from a traditional combustion engine to your first electric vehicle, the Volvo EX30 represents the perfect blend of performance, technology, and affordability.
At a competitive starting price of £33,045.00, the Volvo EX30 from Riverside Volvo offers exceptional value, especially when compared to its counterparts in the EV market. This pricing positions the EX30 as one of the most affordable electric cars, setting a new benchmark in the industry. The EX30's entry into the European market has been met with above-expected order rates, indicating its potential to become a best-seller. Volvo's strategy of offering a high-quality electric SUV at an accessible price point not only makes the EX30 an appealing option for a broad range of audiences but also signifies a significant milestone in Volvo's EV journey. The EX30's affordability, combined with its impressive features and performance, is expected to play a pivotal role in Volvo's growing EV sales, which have already seen a substantial increase. This combination of quality, performance, and affordability underscores the EX30's potential to redefine the electric vehicle market.
The Volvo EX30 stands out for its remarkable blend of performance and efficiency, especially considering its competitive pricing. This model has been designed with a focus on environmental consciousness, using recycled materials in interior components, such as parts of the instrument panel made from old vehicle window frames. It offers a choice of rear- or all-wheel-drive with three different trim levels: Core, Plus, and Ultra.
The Volvo EX30 emerges as a standout in the realm of electric vehicles, balancing exceptional performance with efficiency. It features a powerful twin-motor setup that delivers an impressive 428 horsepower, coupled with a robust 400 lb-ft of torque. This configuration allows the EX30 to swiftly accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, showcasing its remarkable agility and responsiveness. Alongside its dynamic performance, the EX30 also offers commendable efficiency. Its meticulously designed battery system enables a substantial range, ensuring that it meets the practical needs of daily commuting while still providing the exhilarating experience of high-end performance.
In terms of charging, the larger 69kWh battery pack allows the EX30 to reach a 10% to 80% charge in just 26.5 minutes when connected to a DC quick charger. This rapid charging capability complements the vehicle’s performance, making it a practical choice for both daily commuting and longer journeys.
The Volvo EX30 redefines luxury and design in the electric vehicle segment, offering an elegant and modern interior at an affordable price. Inspired by the serene beauty of Scandinavian nature, the EX30 features four distinct interior themes: Breeze, Mist, Pine, and Indigo. Each theme integrates renewable and recycled materials, seamlessly blending environmental responsibility with sophisticated design.
The Breeze interior, for example, skilfully combines recycled Pixel Knit & Nordico upholstery, a smooth material partly made from pine oil, with innovative Particle décor, crafted from recycled plastic waste. The cabin's attention to detail extends to the tailored steering wheel, adorned with luxurious fabric, satin silk trim, and delicate stitching, and the textile inlay mats made partially from discarded fishing nets.
In addition to its commitment to sustainable materials, the EX30 boasts a spacious, airy feel, courtesy of its large panoramic glass roof. The interior is a testament to uncluttered Scandinavian elegance, with smart storage solutions and a generous 318-litre trunk that expands for added convenience.
The vehicle's sound system is equally impressive, featuring a powerful sound bar with five integrated speakers and a Harman Kardon Premium Sound system, complete with a 1040W amplifier and nine high-performance speakers. This state-of-the-art audio setup offers customisable listening experiences, including Dynamic, Soft, or Voice modes.
To enhance the ambience, the EX30 includes Scandinavian ambience themes that can be selected on the centre display. These themes bathe the panel decors, door panels, and front seat storage in slow-shifting colours, complementing the interior design. The movement of the illumination and the activation of ambient sound deepen the immersive experience.
The Volvo EX30's luxury and design are a testament to Volvo's commitment to creating vehicles that are not only environmentally conscious but also exquisitely designed and accessible to a wide range of people.
The Volvo EX30, despite its compact size, is a trailblazer in terms of safety and technology. As Volvo Cars' smallest-ever SUV, it carries the brand's 96-year legacy of safety innovation. Åsa Haglund, the head of Volvo Cars Safety Centre, emphasises the focus on city safety, stating, “With the Volvo EX30 we are taking city safety to the next level, creating a small SUV that is your perfect companion for a comfortable driving experience, while it looks after you and other people on the busy streets of modern cities.” The EX30's safety features are designed specifically for urban environments, including a door-opening alert system that warns drivers about potential hazards, such as passing cyclists, when opening the car door.
The EX30 is equipped with an advanced driver alert system as standard, employing sensors and algorithms to monitor the driver's attention. This system can detect eye and face movements approximately 13 times per second, alerting the driver if they appear distracted or tired. Additionally, the EX30 incorporates advanced technology and state-of-the-art structural design for optimal protection, with reinforced chassis, safety cage, and strengthened pillars. These features demonstrate Volvo's commitment to ensuring the highest safety standards, even in their smallest and most innovative electric SUV.
