Volvo EX30 Details of Swedish electric SUV

Volvo has just officially confirmed its intention to put on the market in 2023 a new small compact electric SUV that will be called EX30. The Swedish manufacturer also plans to carry out its production in China, from where it will be exported globally.

Although at the moment the exact length of this model is unknown, taking into account that the C40 measures 4.44 meters, it seems reasonable to think that the EX30 will be between 4.20 and 4.30 meters long.

The development of this new electric SUV began some time ago, under the command of Hakan Samuelsson, the former CEO of the Swedish firm. Since then there have been some changes in this project; Thus, for example, at that time they worked with the idea of ​​using the XC20 as the name. What has not changed, however, is the platform chosen for this new model.

What can we expect from this compact electric SUV from the Swedish manufacturer?

The Volvo EX30 will be based on the SEA platform developed by Geely, the same one used for example by Smart #1. This can give us an idea of ​​the technical specifications of the Swedish electric SUV. With 4.27 meters in length, the Smart #1 has a 200 kW power propulsion system, with a 66 kWh capacity battery pack that allows it to travel just over 400 km on a single charge.

Volvo EX30

After confirming its launch in 2023, the Swedish manufacturer has indicated that the EX30 will play a fundamental role in the company’s growth strategy. By 2025, Volvo is confident that global sales of the brand’s vehicles will exceed 1.2 million units. A figure that will almost double the sales volume this year, and that will only be possible to achieve through the marketing of more accessible models, such as the EX30.

On the other hand, Volvo believes that the EX30 will not only allow it to attract new customers but also many of them are younger. The company expects the average age of the brand’s customers to drop significantly as a result of the commercialization of this more accessible electric compact SUV.

Enjoy it by paying a monthly fee

Precisely for this reason, Volvo plans to push the subscription model forward with the EX30. The company’s management considers that paying several tens of thousands of euros for an electric vehicle is too high a barrier for many young people while paying a monthly subscription can allow them to enjoy the vehicle. Although the payment that would have to be faced following this model is unknown, some sources indicate that it could be around 600 or 700 euros per month.
