Volvo's EX30 Electric SUV Arriving in 2024

Volvo Car South Africa has announced that the upcoming fully electric EX30 is on its way to South Africa, with the first batch of units already on route. Expected to launch locally in the first quarter of 2024, the EX30 is generating excitement as one of the most affordable electric vehicles on the market, starting at R775,900. By September 2023, over 150 pre-orders for this compact Swedish luxury SUV had been placed.

Greg Maruszewski, Managing Director of Volvo Car South Africa, emphasised the significance of South Africa being among the first countries to receive this new model's initial allocation, highlighting early solid consumer demand. This marks a departure from the usual global launch patterns.

Additionally, the EX30 has been shortlisted for the 2024 European Car of the Year Award, indicating its potential impact on the automotive industry. This follows the success of the XC40 Recharge, which dominated the fully electric premium C-SUV segment in South Africa.

The EX30 plays a crucial role in Volvo's global electrification strategy, excelling in performance, efficiency, sustainability, and safety. The top-tier 315 kW Twin Motor Performance variant can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds, while the extended-range Single Motor (rear-wheel drive) version can cover up to 480 km on the WLTP cycle.

The arrival of the EX30 is set to strengthen Volvo Car South Africa's presence in the rapidly growing new-energy vehicle market, making electric cars more accessible to South Africans. Local orders can be placed on the MyVolvo website.
