2025 Volvo EX30 makes U.S. debut a year ahead of commencement of deliveries
Swedish car brand Volvo recently announced the opening of order books for the all-electric 2025 Volvo EX30 small SUV in the United States, with a starting MSRP of $36,145. The battery-powered 2025 Volvo EX30 is a small premium SUV, which made its first public appearance in North America at a recently held gala event in New York City (NYC). American consumers can place reservation orders for the small EV now, deliveries of the vehicle to reservation holders won’t start before summer 2024. Earlier in June, the electric SUV made its world debut in Milan.
As already mentioned above, the upcoming small SUV is available at a starting MSRP of $36,145, which includes shipping or destination fee of $1,195. At this competitive price tag, the tech-packed SUV seems to be efficient enough compete with rival brand like Tesla. The Swedish manufacturer believes that it is going to be one the most significant models in the brand’s portfolio.
It is also worth noting here that the 2025 Volvo EX30 SUV will enable consumers to have their hands on a fully electric compact premium SUV for roughly the same price as an internal combustion engine-powered equivalent.
Referring to the small electric SUV, Volvo CEO Jim Rowan said in a recent interview that the compact EV would play an important role in the company’s ambitious sales target of at least 1.2 million cars per year by 2025. This targeted figure represents approximately 72 per cent growth in the brand’s global sales recorded in 2021.
The 2025 Volvo EX30 will is being offer in two powertrain options: a Single Motor Extended Range variant with rear-wheel-drive (RWD) configuration that promises a range of 275 miles on a single charge, and a Twin Motor Performance all-wheel-drive (AWD) variant that promises impressive acceleration.
The dual-motor powertrain of the EX30 AWD SUV is capable of producing 422 hp and 400 pound-feet (543 N.m.) of torque. This model takes just 3.4 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph. In other words, it is the fastest-accelerating Volvo-branded production car ever.
The upcoming small, all-electric SUV will soon expand the Swedish brand’s lineup to four EVs, as the company is already offering the Volvo XC40 Recharge, Volvo C40 Recharge, and the Volvo EX90 flagship. The new SUV is the smallest battery-powered vehicle in the electric lineup. However, the manufacturer says it embodies the brand's Scandinavian design principles, legendary safety, and commitment to sustainability.
