Unveiling of EX30 Electric SUV Sees Surge in Orders, Says Volvo

In Australia, Volvo’s electric vehicle (EV) sales are booming. In just the first eight months of this year, the company sold close to 3,000 electric SUVs. 

The upcoming EX30 SUV has already received over 800 orders, showing strong consumer interest.

Stephen Connor, the head of Volvo Cars Australia, believes the EX30 will tap into a niche but growing market for compact, luxury electric SUVs. The car’s sleek interior and modern design could be contributing to its popularity, particularly given the limited choices from other brands.

In terms of size, the EX30 is Volvo’s smallest vehicle offering in Australia. Its dimensions are 4,233 mm in length, 1,837 mm in width, and 1,555 mm in height. It is available in three versions, all starting under $60,000. These are as follows:

  • Volvo EX30 Single Motor Extended Plus: $59,990
  • Volvo EX30 Single Motor Extended Ultra: $64,990
  • Volvo EX30 Twin Performance Ultra: $69,990

These models feature a 69 kWh battery. The dual-motor version boasts up to 315 kW of power and 543 Nm of torque and offers a driving range of up to 460 km based on the WLTP standard.

Fast-charging capabilities are another feature that makes the EX30 attractive. The vehicle supports DC fast charging of up to 150 kW, allowing users to charge from 10% to 80% in just about 30 minutes. 

With a burgeoning charging network and the vehicle’s long-range capability, the EX30 is well-suited for a variety of driving conditions, from daily city commutes to longer road trips.

The strong pre-order numbers for the EX30, as well as Volvo’s broader success in the Australian EV market, underscore the increasing consumer interest in electric offerings from European manufacturers. 

As Volvo aims to shift to an all-electric lineup by 2026, it seems to be on a successful trajectory, well-placed to become a major contender in the electric vehicle sector.
