Volvo unveiled its new electric flagship electric SUV, the EX90 last November and at the event it also teased a new entry-level EV that’s slated to debut in 2023. Volvo has now confirmed when we’ll get to see the EX30 debut, since he confirmed the June 15 date to Australia’s CarSales.
In an interview, Volvo CEO Jim Rowan confirmed that the EX30 will have “decent range” and that it will be smaller than the XC40. The XC30 is expected to be based on Geely’s Sustainable Experience Architecture and will be closely related to the Polestar 4 crossover.
The EX30 will be built in China. It will also be available via a subscription plan that can be as short as three months, which should help it appeal to a younger audience. “The age demographic that we have at Volvo is a lot older than we would like; we’d like to get some more younger people into the brand,” Rowan stated to the publication. He also expects that the EX30 will appeal to older buyers that want to downsize their vehicle.
