Volvo will start building this EV at its plant in Ghent, Belgium from 2025, in addition to the factory in China where it is already being assembled
The Volvo EX30 is one of the most gorgeous looking small all-electric crossovers that money can buy now. The entire office here is positively surprised by how well it looks, and the visual appeal is joined by one of the best price tags in its vehicle class, making it a rather attractive purchase for customers worldwide. In turn, due to popular demand, even though the EX30 is yet to hit the market, the Swedish brand is announcing that it will start building this EV at its plant in Ghent, Belgium from 2025, in addition to the factory in China where it is already being assembled.
“Our ambition is to sell the EX30 around the world at an attractive price point, easing the transition to driving an electric Volvo car for more people while also contributing to company margins,” Volvo Cars chief executive Jim Rowan said. “Adding production in Ghent is a logical move as we aim to capture the strong demand for our exciting small electric SUV across the globe.”
The first production volumes began earlier this year in Zhangjiakou, China and the first cars built at this site will reach the hands of customers later this year. Volvo considers the EX30 one of the flagship models that will help them attain the goal of 50% of its global sales volume being BEV only by 2025. and to sell only battery-electric cars by 2030. An amazing achievement that we believe is more than attainable for the Swedish carmaker.
Volvo announced the U.S. pricing details for the EX30 were earlier this month. The entry-level model known as the Core will start at $36,245 and comes equipped with a single electric motor with 268 hp and 253 lb-ft (343 Nm) of torque. It can travel up to 275 miles (442 km) on a charge and the same powertrain will be offered in the single-motor Plus ($40,195) and Ultra ($41,895) models.
Volvo will also sell the EX30 with a dual-motor powertrain. This model will be sold in Plus ($46,195) and Ultra ($47,895) guises and delivers 422 hp and 401 lb-ft (543 Nm) of torque. The added power allows it to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.4 seconds but reduces the range to 265 miles (426 km). You can grab a detailed look at the Volvo EX30 in the detailed media gallery right below.
