    Why and how on earth can car manufacturers justify a starting price of £34-35,000 for EVs?

    1. Dreador Avatar

      It’s not just EV’s – base x3 was 37k in 2018 now it’s 47k

      @Dreador Ah that’s true, like the new Civic Type R has a 10 grand premium over the previous model, but the engine is nearly identical?

      @Dreador Jesus! Somehow I don’t think the cost of living really justifies these price hikes!

    Great video! But what type of batteries is there with the EX30? Are they LFP type?

    1. Trevor Heley Avatar

      LFP on entry model and NMC on the others

    Thanks! The core version is already selectable in the German configurator.

    Good informative review. Thank you. The non keyless entry/exit on the cheaper versions seem a bit of a faff. Whilst it may I guess be more secure, even cars that are locked/unlocked with a remote, you don’t need to physically touch the car with it and can operate from inside your pocket. With hands full, keys hiding in the bottom of your pockets etc. seems a backward step? Otherwise looking forward to the reviews and ownership experience of this car as it seems on paper and in this latest review a good car for the money.

    Good to see electric cars becoming more affordable ! That off road model should come to the Uk !

      They’re not affordable.
      That’s what China has on offer in spades

    Even with the bigger battery, it certainly makes the likes of the newly refreshed Corsa look severely overpriced.

    Who will call the Smart #1, “Smart hashtag 1” instead of “Smart 1” ?

    That front is going to be stone chip heaven, the less paint you have on the front the better. Looks great in the showroom, less so in a few months, especially if it’s accelerating at 3.5 secs to 60

    Definitely like to see the cross country model in the UK!

    Spoke to my local volvo dealer about the lack of a head-up display. According to him, looking down and to the left is safer than looking directly ahead?! So every other volvo isn’t safe then? Would respect him more if he said it was a cost cutting exercise. Like it, but won’t be buying one until a head-up display is an option.

    As with every other EV the range is just not good enough.

    1. drxym Avatar

      I have an MG4 and I go 7-10 days between charges for what I use it for. If I *had* to drive long range, then fast chargers exist for that purpose and it might slightly perturb me to think about where to charge on a 300 mile journey but I could still do it. But the reality is that day to day I’m only doing maybe 30-50km so it’s no concern at all.

    Looks really good!… and actually sensibly priced. 👍🏻

    This Chinese car is amazing along with MG4!

    Gorgeous car, and pricewise definitely one of the first Volvos that would be interesting to me. Unfortunately not the short-range one as a real-world usable EV (for me at least) needs +250 miles (+400km) of WLTP range. So the longer range single motor version would be a neccesity… but at (in the Netherlands) €45.000 it would cost a chunk more as well.

    That makes the BYD Atto 3 a lot more interesting. The Atto 3 is bigger, has a roughly equal range but with an LFP battery, has a standard panoramic roof, and is actually a little cheaper as well. Granted, the EX30 looks a heck of a lot better, even objectively speaking. 🙂
