Volvo EX30 – Smol But Mighty

From Transport Evolved.

In the last few years, we’ve seen an inexorable push from the auto industry toward ever larger, more complicated (and more expensive) electric vehicles, offering huge ranges, quick acceleration, and the kind of sticker price that is beyond the means of many buyers.

Earlier this week however, Volvo surprised us with the price point of is smallest and smartest electric car to date, the 2024 Volvo EX30 SUV.

And while we think of this car as being nearer to a hatchback than a traditional crossover, we think this could be just what the market has been yearning for – especially in markets where its most affordable variant – with LFP battery pack – will go on sale.
