What Features & Specs Does the Volvo EX30 Have?

While Volvo has yet to confirm the full spec sheet for the EX30 range, we do know most of its initial plans.

Volvo’s EX30 Plus range for example, comes riding on a set of 19-inch alloys and receives LED head & tail lights, adaptive cruise control, a rear-view camera with parking sensors, a powered boot lift, wireless smartphone charging, a two-tone roof, recycled Pixel Knit & Nordico upholstery with a satin silk steering wheel, dual-zone climate control and a set of auto-dimming rear-view mirrors.

Stepping up to the EX30 Ultra range adds a set of 20-inch alloys, a surround-view monitor, a panoramic sunroof, rear privacy glass, a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable front seats with lumbar support and a parking assistant.

Infotainment Features

The Volvo EX30 range comes fitted with a 12.3-inch display mounted vertically on the dashboard which is paired with a Harman Kardon premium sound system.

Does the Volvo EX30 have Apple CarPlay & Android Auto?

The Volvo EX30’s 12.3-inch infotainment system supports both wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as several Android-based Google applications and displays vital vehicle information like your speed, climate inputs and vehicle controls all via the centrally-mounted display.

What Engine Options are Available for the Volvo EX30?

Volvo has split its EX30 range into two camps.

There’s a pair of single-motor variants at the base of the lineup, known as the Single Motor Extended Plus and Ultra, while the Twin Performance Ultra receives an additional electric motor that dramatically increases power figures.

Single motor variants of the EX30 produce a very healthy 200kW of power and 343Nm of torque that is thrown to the rear wheels.

Upgrading to the EX30 Twin Performance increases these figures up to 315kW and 543Nm of torque while offering the added traction of an all-wheel drive system.

Is the Volvo EX30 Energy Efficient?

All members of the EX30 range come powered by a 69kWh nickel manganese cobalt battery pack which offers energy efficiency ratings of around 16.7kWh/100km on a combined cycle.

This means you can expect up to 460km of range in the Twin Performance, rising to a maximum of 480km of range in the Single Motor Extended Plus & Ultra.

  • Single Motor Extended Plus & Ultra Range: 480km

  • Twin Performance Range: 460km

  • Volvo EX30 Energy Efficiency: 16.7kWh/100km

  • DC Fast Charging Speeds: 153kW

Is it Practical and Spacious?

Volvo has long been in the business of minimalist designs, and the EX30 carries on this traditional with a super sleek, spacious interior.

Up front, there’s a super clean aesthetic that positions a large, vertically-mounted central display flanked by a tall set of air vents.

In a common trend for electric vehicles, Volvo has done away with all physical buttons on the dashboard. 

The company has also leaned into the use of recycled textiles throughout the interior, with a unique particle design made from recycled window frames spanning the length of the dashboard, as well as recycled textiles for the upholstery.

The end result is remarkably stylish, as we’ve come to expect from Volvo.

The company has also done well to utilise the added space provided by a bespoke EV platform, which means there’s a tonne of real estate in the front of the cabin.

Storage options include a tray for smartphones at the base of the dash, a large tray sitting beneath the arm rest, a clever retractable pair of cup holders and added storage inside the armrest itself, but no door bins.

How big is the Volvo EX30’s boot?

The Volvo EX30 has a boot measuring in at a relatively compact 318L, though there’s an additional 61L of cargo space on offer underneath the removable boot floor, bringing its combined boot sapce figures to 379L.

Is it Safe?

Safety equipment is one area that the Volvo EX30 is certainly not lacking, building upon Volvo’s heritage as one of the safest manufacturers in the business.

As standard, the EX30 comes fitted with forward and reverse autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection and junction assist, lane-keep assist, front and rear-cross traffic alerts, a rear-view camera with parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign detection.

Does the Volvo EX30 have an ANCAP Safety Rating?

The Volvo EX30 range is yet to be officially tested by ANCAP, meaning that as of publishing, it does not have an ANCAP rating. 

What Warranty Does the Volvo EX30 Come With?

Volvo offers the EX30 range with a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

The company also offers an eight-year warranty for the battery and high-voltage components, as well as eight years of roadside assistance.

Our Verdict: Is the Volvo EX30 Worth it?

While its competition might be fierce, the EX30 looks to stand confidently on its own feet as a stylish, practical and comfortable battery-electric company SUV.

Considering Volvo’s extremely competitive pricing for the base model, the EX30 looks set to play a key role in the company’s expansion in the EV space and is well worth a spot on your shortlist as a result.
