Volvo EX30 review - cheapest, quickest & BEST!



This is the all-new Volvo EX30!

It’s an all-new small electric SUV from the Swedish manufacturers, and we think it may be one of its best releases in year! But what makes it so impressive?

Well for starters, let’s take a look at the design. Being an all-electric car, there’s no grille up front, but the design still reminds us of Volvos from the past. Along the side you’ll find a sloping roofline along with bespoke alloy wheel designs that are able to help improve efficiency. And then around the rear there are some well-designed taillights that really help give the car a bit of personality.

Step inside and the EX30 is really well designed. Nearly all functionality is housed in the central infotainment screen, which although can be annoying at times, has been done to help keep all wiring in one place to help improve costs. There are soft touch materials throughout most of the car, and the seats are super comfortable.

When it comes to performance, there are a couple of editions of the EX30 available. The entry-level car has a 49kWh battery pack and comes with a claimed range of 210 miles. There’s then a larger battery edition with two electric motors, with the range topper being the Performance model, which has a range of around 290 miles.

And it’s not just the range of the Performance model that we’re interested in. The two motors combine to produce 28hp and 543Nm of torque! This makes it one of the most powerful Volvos ever produced!

So this mini Volvo packs a serious punch, and the price starts at just £34,000, rising to only £44,000 for the top-of-the-range edition! Does this therefore make it one of the best Volvos ever? You’ll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!
