Volvo’s Compact Electric SUV
Volvo Car USA has unveiled the Volvo EX30, its first small premium fully electric SUV. This addition expands Volvo’s electric vehicle lineup to four models, offering customers an attractive entry point into the world of electric luxury vehicles. With a starting price of just $34,950, the EX30 aims to provide a premium electric SUV experience at a competitive cost compared to its internal combustion engine counterparts.

Scandinavian Design Meets Compact Luxury
Described as “an espresso shot of Volvo” by the Volvo Cars Design team, the EX30 embodies the brand’s Scandinavian design principles in a more compact and concentrated form. Customers can choose from five exterior colors, ranging from bold and playful to pure and elegant. Inside, the EX30 offers a minimalist Scandinavian design with a choice of four unique interior expressions and five ambient light themes inspired by Swedish landscapes, allowing for personalization and luxury in a smaller package.

Safety and Sustainability
The Volvo EX30 prioritizes safety with a suite of advanced features, including radars, cameras, and ultrasonic sensors. It draws from Volvo’s extensive research on real-world accidents and injuries to enhance passenger and pedestrian safety. Additionally, the EX30 is designed to have the lowest carbon dioxide footprint of any Volvo car to date, aligning with the company’s goals of becoming fully electric by 2030 and carbon neutral by 2040.

Advanced Connectivity and Features
Standard features in the EX30 include Google built-in with native Google Maps and Google Assistant, wireless Apple CarPlay, and a range of advanced safety systems. Upgrading to higher equipment levels provides premium sound by Harman Kardon, a panoramic roof, and advanced driver-assist features like Pilot Assist with Lane Change Assistance and 360 Camera with 3D View.

Efficient Powertrains for Every Journey
The EX30 offers two electric propulsion options, providing flexibility and efficiency for various driving scenarios. With an EPA estimated range of up to 275 miles, the Single Motor Extended Range variant is available in three equipment levels: Core, Plus, and Ultra. For performance enthusiasts, the Twin Motor Performance variant boasts a rapid 0-60 mph time of just 3.4 seconds, making it the fastest accelerating Volvo ever.

Pre-orders and Delivery
Customers who have placed pre-order deposits can configure their EX30 later in the fall, with deliveries expected to begin in the first half of the next year. Those interested in the Volvo EX30 or other models in the Volvo Cars lineup can contact their local retailer or visit for more information.

In summary, the Volvo EX30 offers an affordable entry point into the world of premium electric SUVs, combining Scandinavian design, advanced safety, and efficient powertrains to meet a range of driving needs. Volvo continues to push the boundaries of luxury and sustainability in its lineup of electric vehicles.
