Volvo C30 Electric Hits The Road

Due to Volvo’s recent agreement with Göteborg Energi, the first fleet of of Volvo C30 Electric cars will be delivered to the Swedish firm as company cars.

Volvo will provide them with 10 C30 eDrive models all equipped with advanced measuring instruments, so Volvo can test the cars in real world conditions.

The Volvo C30 Electric has the same safety, comfort and interior space as the standard Volvo C30. The difference is that the C30 Electric is powered solely by electricity – so it has absolutely no exhaust emissions on the road.

Volvo C30 eDrive’s electric drivetrain includes a lithium-ion battery that is charged from a regular mains power socket. It takes up to eight hours for it to become fully charged, but when it’s full it can cover a distance of 150 Km. It’s not that slow either, as 0 to 100 km/h is done within 10.5 seconds.

“We believe in the future of the electric car and are extremely proud that we will be the first recipients of electric vehicles from Volvo Cars. We work to promote a sustainable society in Göteborg so to participate in the development of new infrastructure for safe electric cars and cooperate with Volvo Cars at such an early stage feels absolutely right,” explains Anders Hedenstedt, President of Göteborg Energi.
