The Volvo EX30 will make its debut in 2025 as the brand’s smallest electric SUV, placing it behind both the C40 Recharge and the XC40 Recharge in terms of both size and cost.
The EX30 with rear-wheel drive and 268 horsepower has a claimed range of 275 miles and starts at $36,145. Additionally, an all-wheel drive model with 422-horsepower is available, but it costs more.
The cabin of the EX30 comes equipped with a single touchscreen measuring 12.3 inches, a multitude of recycled materials, and a sound bar that spans the entire width of the dashboard.

Volvo EX30

Although most people who looked at it with both eyes realised it was a high-riding hatchback, Chevrolet marketed the Bolt EV as an SUV. But the Bolt will be dead and buried by the end of this year, and there aren’t a lot of other tiny, affordable electric hatchbacks—er, SUVs—for Americans to select from. Because of this, the 2025 Volvo EX30 is such a breath of new air.

The most compact Volvo.

When compared to the standard Bolt, the dimensions of the EX30 are 166.7 inches in length and 61.1 inches in height. This makes it a few inches longer and a couple inches shorter overall. However, at 72.3 inches, the Volvo is almost 3 inches wider than the other vehicle. The EX30 is also cheaper and more compact than the completely electric Volvo XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge, which are both located towards the more compact end of the spectrum of SUV sizes. Both of these vehicles are subcompact SUVs. The ground clearance of the EX30 is 6.5 inches, and it rides on a wheelbase that is only 104.3 inches long. Additionally, it has a capacity of towing 2000 pounds, which is the same as the Recharge twins.

Because the EX30 embodies the spirit of electric vehicles (EVs) better than many other electric models that are now available for purchase on these shores, the Swedish automaker is free to promote its smallest model in whatever way it sees fit. It is the polar opposite of massive vehicles weighing four tonnes or more, such as the GMC Hummer EV SUV and the increasing number of electric pickup trucks. Although it is evident that a smaller car requires fewer materials to manufacture, Volvo takes further steps to ensure that the EX30 is environmentally friendly.

Simple Ways to Achieve Sustainability

Volvo claims that it has simplified the production process by increasing the amount of stamped body pieces. This is in addition to the use of more materials that are recyclable and renewable. The bulk of the company’s suppliers are stated to have committed to utilising 100 percent renewable energy by the year 2025, and the company also partners with suppliers who share its mission of achieving climate neutrality. In addition, Volvo utilises blockchain technology to track the origin of essential raw materials used in the production of its batteries.

The EX30 will begin production in China, in a factory that is supposed to be largely powered by climate-neutral energy, but a company representative would to specify whether it would eventually be made in Volvo’s South Carolina plant, as is the intention for the bigger, three-row EX90. Production of the EX30 will begin in China, in a factory that is said to be primarily powered by climate-neutral energy. As a consequence of this, it is currently unknown whether or not the EX30 will ever become qualified for electric vehicle (EV) tax credits under the new federal regulations.

People will be able to see, once inside the EX30, the ways in which Volvo has simplified things for the sake of sustainability. The EX30 comes standard with a full-width sound bar that is located at the base of the windscreen. This is in contrast to the majority of automobiles, which have audio speakers scattered throughout the doors and dashboard. It eliminates the need for as much wiring as it can as well as frees up space for seven speakers inside the door panels, which can then be used to store more items. Adding optional Harman/Kardon components is a natural way to take the sound system to the next level of sophistication.

When referring to the EX30, “minimalist” does not indicate plain, dull, or questionably screwed together like it does when referring to the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y. Instead, it takes inspiration from the stylish interiors of Volvo vehicles and offers a variety of appealing upholstery options, such as wool-blend textiles and recycled denim. In addition to that, it has some unique trim pieces on the dashboard and on the doors, which are highlighted by ambient lighting that can be adjusted.

The centre console provides ample storage space, as well as cupholders that can be retracted and various additional bins that may be used for a variety of purposes for passengers in the front and back seats. Additionally, there is a glovebox that is located directly below the centre stack and benefits from an abundance of space made possible by the level load floor. The EX30 has a storage capacity of 14 cubic feet behind the second row of seats, which may be increased to 32 cubic feet when those seats are folded down.

The EX30, much like the Teslas, has a single display positioned in the centre of the dashboard. From this display, the driver may control all of the essential driving information as well as various vehicle settings and informational and entertainment alternatives. The most recent version of Google’s Android operating system is installed on the touchscreen device with a vertical orientation of 12.3 inches. The most important piece of information is that it at long last has wireless Apple CarPlay. A spokesman for Volvo stated that wireless Android Auto is not included because the native system is capable of performing such duties.

Enhanced in Power

The Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) electric platform was designed by Geely, which is Volvo’s Chinese parent company. This platform is used in the construction of the EX30. There are two different powerplant options for the compact pickup truck. There is a variant available with a single motor that sends power to the rear wheels and generates 268 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. The all-wheel-drive dual-motor model generates a combined output of 422 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. According to Volvo, that amount of power is sufficient to propel the EX30 from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.4 seconds.



Each EX30 comes equipped with a battery pack that has a capacity of 64.0 kWh. The Volvo single-motor model is anticipated to have a range of 275 miles when fully charged, while the Volvo dual-motor model is anticipated to have a range reduction of 10 miles. The EPA has not yet given its stamp of approval to either range rating. When hooked into a DC fast charger at its max charging rate of 153 kW, Volvo claims that it takes the battery of the EX30 around 27 minutes to charge from 10 to 80 percent when the vehicle is in use.

When driven, the EX30 upholds Volvo’s reputation for producing safe and reliable vehicles. It comes with all kinds of standard driver assistance technology, but it also has an alarm that can help you avoid opening a door in the path of incoming bicycles and other potential hazards. There is also a new driver-attention monitor that is available, which is believed to be more capable of determining whether or not a motorist is distracted or sleepy. The EX30 also marks the introduction of Volvo’s latest-generation automated Park Pilot Assist technology, which is designed to assist drivers who have difficulty parking their vehicles. To put it simply, it is able to recognise and carry out a greater variety of parking scenarios, including curved and diagonal fishbone-style places.

Coming Soon: EX30 Cross Country.

Finally, Volvo is going to release an electric vehicle with its rugged Cross Country treatment. Although it is not expected that production would begin until later in 2024, the EX30 Cross Country will have many of the same characteristics as its models that came before it. This features a higher ground clearance and exterior components that have a more robust appearance. Other distinguishing characteristics include a Swedish flag painted on the hood and black panels on the front bumper and tailgate of the vehicle.

There will be a set of 18-inch wheels available in addition to the black 19-inch wheels, and the tread on the 18-inch wheels will most likely be chunkier. According to a representative for Volvo, the aggressive BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tyres that were featured on the vehicle that was pictured above will not be included in the production model. On the other hand, the roof rack will be available as an option for the EX30 Cross Country.

Pre-orders can now be placed for the variant of the 2025 Volvo EX30 that will be sold in the United States. Prices begin at $36,145 for the most basic Core trim level, which comes equipped with a single motor. Despite the fact that the company has stated that a Plus model with a more moderate feature set and an Ultimate model with even more bells and whistles will round out the selection, it has not yet disclosed pricing information. This will take place sometime prior to the summer of 2019, when U.S. models first start arriving in dealerships.
