Excitement is building in the electric vehicle community as Volvo gears up to unveil its latest masterpiece – the all-new, small yet mighty Volvo EX30 SUV. This highly anticipated electric crossover is set to make its debut at the prestigious Electrify Expo, North America’s largest electric vehicle (EV) festival, taking place on August 12-13 at the iconic Nassau Coliseum in Long Island.


From Ambitious Goals to an All-Electric Horizon

Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that the automotive world is hurtling towards an electrified future. Among the trailblazers in this green revolution is Volvo, a brand known for its commitment to sustainability. Back in 2017, Volvo set an ambitious goal of equipping every new model with an electric motor, and they’re not slowing down. Their sights are now set on putting one million electric cars on the road by 2025. But they’re not stopping there; Volvo has announced its bold plan to produce only electric-powered vehicles from 2030.


EX30: An Affordable EV SUV with Unbeatable Performance

The star of the show is the EX30, a compact fully electric SUV that’s poised to make a big impact. With a starting price of just $34,950, the EX30 is making EV ownership more attainable for a wider audience. But affordability doesn’t mean sacrificing performance. On the contrary, the EX30’s electric motor delivers impressive acceleration, with the single-motor variant clocking 0-60 mph in just 5.1 seconds, while the twin-motor “Performance” model takes a mind-blowing 3.4 seconds.


A Journey Without Range Anxiety

One of the most common concerns for potential EV buyers is range anxiety. Volvo understands this fear and has addressed it head-on with the EX30. In the single-motor “Extended Range” model, drivers can travel up to 275 miles on a single charge, while the “Performance” model offers an estimated 265 miles. With the ability to rapidly charge from 10% to 80% in just 26.5 minutes using DC fast charging (CCS2), the EX30 is ready for the open road.
