The 2025 EX30 Is Affordable Electric Volvo We’ve Been Promised

Volvo's 2025 EX30 may simply be the bite-size crossover that catapults Volvo's sales into new territory. In addition to a trove of images and information we have the base MSRP whichat $34,950 certainly raises hopes and eyebrows. As will the performance numbers.

The EX30 uses comparable styling to the EX90 in a much smaller package. At 166 inches long, this is a couple of inches more compact than a Mini Compatriot. Also intriguing: despite EX30 sounding awfully crossover like, there will also be a Cross Nation variant. That one includes body cladding, Cross Country graphics, 19" black wheels (or optional 18s with tougher rubber), skid plates all around, and more ground clearance.

At the start Volvo will provide just one battery with a usable capacity of 64 kWh powering a 268-hp rear motor. That one will get you 275 miles of range and 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. Desire more power? Volvo will add a 154 HP motor in the front that will drop 0-60 sprints to 3.4 seconds making this the fastest Volvo ever made. It likewise won't drop your range much with a 265 mile predicted variety. DC fast charges pea at 153 kW, which indicates 10% to 80% in about 27 minutes.

Pre-orders are open now, should we purchase a base model? Volvo Cars And Truck U.S.A.

    This is really interesting. Hopefully there won’t be too much price gouging at launch. The base one is intriguing, all EVs should start with RWD

      I kinda always figured FWD is a good base offering being regen ability tends to be a bit better than having the motors on the rear axle.

      @ALMX5DP true, but stability is greater coming from the rear.

      @N C what kind of stability are you referring to?

      It’s made in China, so hopefully there’s a large tariff smacked on top of it in the US.

    Terrific assessment of the new offering. Thanks for the information. I just watched the premiere on the Volvo channel and your video fills in all the questions I had. This is going to slay the small SUV space, I imagine. Exciting times!!!

    Thanks for the preview Alex – this looks like a very solid offering from Volvo and, if available at that price point, I see cars like this representing the tipping point for EVs, allowing them to become serious mainstream vehicles.

    Volvo does it again. This is a gorgeous and well thought out design. The industry should really be looking at Volvo when it comes to timeless design.

      Right? A/Ts and a factory lift? Take my money!

    Looks like a good replacement for the Bolt. Although from your description it sounds like be somewhat smaller.

      Looks like it’s bigger than the bolt EUV inside, but it’s hard to say. The EX30 is more upright and boxy

    If they hit that price point, it will put a lot of pressure on the other automakers. The $30k-$40k ev space needs way more models so more people can access them

    Volvo design always does it for me, especially that Cross Country trim!

    This is an exciting product for me!
    I will seriously consider trading in my i3s for this! 🤔

    I like the design, waiting on the price for the AWD and interior dimensions.

    This might be the most compelling new EV and CUV for me. The price almost sounds too good to be true. I am not a crossover enthusiast personally, I do my best to ignore the segment generally speaking. This thing looks awesome though, I love the design language from Volvo (and Polestar) and the small size is intriguing as a city dweller. If my money were on the line, I’d get the off-road trim.

    Okay. This is VERY interesting 🤔

    It’s all about the PRICE and RANGE.

    The GM Equinox EV is the real game changer. 511+ KM range. ✅

    That’s a lot of checkboxes done for the price. I’m looking forward to your review.

    Looks great, my only concern is how tight that back row is. Looks like it could hold a lot of stuff with the back row down.

    This looks awesome for the price IMO. Hopefully they can hit the price target.

    If these price points hold… this might be a serious contender for my commuter/city runner

    *gasp* that looks fantastic. I’m still a HUGE proponent of the PHEV, but that is a solid little vehicle
