Volvo's smallest SUV ever takes the Swedish company directly into the future that is just around the corner. In fact, the new arrival Volvo Ex30, a small premium SUV that expands Volvo's range of fully electric cars, was presented in world premiere today, in Milan.
Everything in the Ex30 is designed to be sustainable, technologically advanced with the aim of making the electric driving experience as pleasant as possible, for the most diverse uses. With a price that will start from 36,000 euros, it places Volvo's premium electric SUV in the cost range comparable to an equivalent vehicle but with a thermal engine. The Ex30 will also be available with the Care by Volvo subscription package, with fixed rates and a transparent and simple ordering process.

Jim Rowan, CEO of Volvo, said: "The all-electric Ex30 may be our smallest SUV ever, but it represents a great opportunity for our customers and for us as a company. We like to point out that the Ex30 is small but powerful, because it offers everything you could want from a Volvo, but in a more compact package."
On the design front, the Ex30 sums up all of Volvo's signature construction principles, but in a smaller format. The long wheelbase and large wheels point to a balance of the exterior, between the closed grille and a 'digital' interpretation of the 'Thor's Hammer' headlights. There are five body tones, from the elegant Cloud Blue to the bright Moss Yellow, the latter inspired by the lichens that grow on the rocks along the Swedish west coast.
Designed to meet every need, even batteries. Volvo has decided to leave customers free to choose the battery technology that best suits their needs, offering the Ex30 with three powertrain variants and two different battery types.
For those who spend most of their time in the city or tend to travel shorter distances, there is the single-motor option with LFP battery, with standard range, more cost-efficient and less resource-intensive for its production.
If you prefer to maximize the range, the Single Motor Extended Range variant with Nmc battery with extended autonomy is the ideal choice. This single-engine, extended range option provides a range of up to 480 km between charges. If performance is your priority, the Twin Motor Performance variant is also available, which combines the NMC battery with an additional electric motor.
The extended range Twin Motor variant has a charging capacity of up to 153 kW, while the standard model has a capacity of 134 kW. This means that you can charge the battery from 10 to 80% in just over 25 minutes. The central display on board the car and the app allow you to set the amperage, the maximum charge level and the time when you want to start charging.
