Volvo unveils game-changing EX30 SUV for $35K, set to debut in 2025

The compact SUV features A 200 kW/268 hp single electric motor that powers the rear axle of a standard rear-wheel drive vehicle.

The Volvo five-passenger EX30 may be the first electric vehicle to reach America’s mass market. The Swedish luxury brand’s small SUV will arrive in U.S. dealerships by early 2025. 

The EX30 is primed to transform American’s perception of electric vehicles and make innovative technology accessible to a wide range of consumers. Constructed in substantial quantities in at least two global facilities, the EX30 has the potential to revolutionize the automotive industry, fulfilling GM’s expectations for its Chevrolet Equinox. However, production issues compelled GM to postpone its comparably priced EV until 2024.

Starting at $34,950, the small SUV is more than $10,000 less expensive than the typical new car in the United States and thousands more affordable than the typical EV.

Pricing and trim levels for the 2025 Volvo EX30:

Single Motor Extended Range:

  • Core: $34,950
  • Plus: $38,900
  • Ultra: $40,600

Dual Motor Performance:

  • Plus: $44,900
  • Ultra: $46,600

The compact SUV features A 200 kW/268 hp single electric motor that powers the rear axle of a standard rear-wheel drive vehicle. The 315 kW/422 hp Twin Motor variant can have all-wheel drive by adding an engine up front. According to EPA tests, the RWD Single Motor Extended Range EX30 can travel 275 miles between charges. Due to Volvo’s superior engineering and efficiency, the Twin Motor Performance should only travel 265 miles, which is an impressively modest drop. Additionally, in the Muscle cars, the dual-motor AWD EX30 can reach 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. Given that it’s primarily a grocery getter, the single-motor vehicle reaches 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. For leased EVs, the EX30 is eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit.
