2025 Volvo EX30 Electric Luxury SUV


This is the Volvo EX30, an electric luxury SUV for under $40k. Today I’m reviewing this Volvo EX30, and I’ll show you all the many quirks and features. I’m also going to get behind the wheel of the Volvo EX30 and show you what it’s like to drive.

Designed to have the smallest carbon footprint of any Volvo car to date, the EX30 uses renewable and recycled materials in new ways.A minimalistic design approach and efficient use of materials helped us reduce or eliminate waste.Exterior materials:Around 25 per cent of all aluminium, 17 per cent of all steel and plastics used in the EX30 are recycled.Interior materials:Around 30 per cent of décor parts use recycled plastic, plus recycled and renewable surfaces.

Base EX30 models come with rear-wheel drive and generate 268 horsepower along with 253 lb-ft. of torque. Acceleration is progressive and lively enough. Volvo claims 0-100 km/h sprints are achieved in 5.3 seconds, while top speed is set at 180 km/h. Adding a motor to drive the front axle increases output to 422 horsepower and 400 lb-ft. of torque.


Volvo says the single-motor version will travel 275 miles between trips to the plug, 10 more than the dual-motor version. The EX30 cockpit dips into another inkwell for inspo. The single, center-mounted touchscreen taps Tesla’s tech-ripe look—but the cabin’s trimmed in all kinds of recycled matter that comes off as the polar opposite to the dreamy birch-white woodgrains and pillowy nappa leathers of Volvo’s upscale SUVs.
