Volvo has announced that on June 15 it will reveal the EX30, but today we see the first low-quality photo – a leak of the model.
This comes from the Swedish company’s developer, with the EX30 being a small electric SUV, which will be positioned under the XC40 Recharge. It will be released in China and will be offered with several batteries of different capacities.
Volvo CEO Jim Rowan predicts the EX30 will play a “huge role” in achieving the ambitious goal of increasing sales by 70% by 2025. Volvo wants to produce 1.2 million vehicles a year by mid-decade, when on the same day as its presentation, it will also be available for order in selected markets, including the Greek one.
The company says the EX30 was designed to have the smallest carbon footprint of any model to date, and by addressing emissions in the EX30’s production process and life cycle, Volvo has been able to reduce its overall carbon footprint for 200,000 kilometers of driving to less than 30 tons.
This is a reduction of around 25% compared to the all-electric C40 and XC40 and is an important step towards its goal of reducing our total CO2 emissions per vehicle by 40% between 2018 and 2025.
However, to reduce the overall score of the car, the electrification is not enough. The car is not only driven, but also designed, manufactured, manufactured and shipped. All of these measures provide opportunities to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Volvo has reduced the carbon footprint of the EX30 by 75% compared to our current electric models by using recycled materials throughout. About a quarter of all aluminum used in car construction is recycled, while the same is true for about 17% of all steel, which further reduces the environmental impact of these materials.
The same method applies to the interior, as the most suitable part is the part that does not exist. Guided by refinement as a sustainable design principle for the interior of the Volvo EX30, our designers succeeded in bringing together many functional elements in one element.
Around 17% of all plastics in the car, from interior components to bumpers, are recycled, which is the highest percentage of any Volvo car to date.
