Volvo EX30 in Moss Yellow

What if we said to you that Volvo has launched it’s fastest accelerating car ever built? On top of that it has one of the lowest lifetime CO2 footprint of any of their cars. So let’s have a little look at the smallest pure electric car ever made by Volvo.

Overview

Hot off the back of the Volvo EX90, the EX30 is the smallest car Volvo has ever manufacturered and they are really pushing how green this car is with the smallest lifetime carbon footprint of any Volvo to date.

On top of this, they are really boasting the performance of this car with their top-of-the-range Twin Motor Performance vehicle accelerating from 0 to 60 in 3.6 seconds.

The car has almost adopted a Tesla Model 3/Y interior, being minimalist. No buttons on the doors, iPad style screen in the centre, no speedo and surprisingly, no speakers in the door. The latter has been replaced by a sound bar across the front of the dashboard.

Interior/Technology

The interior is in-keeping with other Volvo car’s in the range. The main focal point being the large 12.3″ vertically mounted touchscreen that screams iPad. It runs Volvo’s Google-based systems with welcome familiarity with apps like Google Maps. The system is also compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, but no word as yet on the next generation of the Apple CarPlay system.

As already mentioned, you won’t find any speakers in the door, instead, a soundbar that runs the full width of the dashboard. Just like the one you’ve probably got at home.

Strangely, they have centrally mounted the (large) glovebox (probably to give the passenger some leg space) and they have also included a large centre consoles with buttons that operate the electric windows.

As with all Volvo’s you can guarantee that safety is the number one priority with all of the systems to help prevent or predict any incidents that could occur.
