Ever since Volvo announced a teaser for its all-electric EX30 SUV, we have been eagerly awaiting the local arrival of the EV, and now that day has arrived.

This as Volvo Car SA officially launched the vehicle at an event in Johannesburg this week.

“Fittingly unveiled to the media at Johannesburg’s thriving Victoria Yards venue – an urban regeneration ecosystem laid out to foster connection and collaboration, while keeping sustainability chief of mind – the sharply styled EX30 has the smallest CO2 footprint of any Volvo car to date,” the company highlighted in a release shared with Hypertext.

The EX30 also carries the unique distinction of being the fastest accelerating production car that Volvo has made to date, reaching 100km/h from a standstill in just 3.6 seconds.

“We’re excited to launch the new EX30 in South Africa as part of the first wave of this important new model’s global rollout. We believe that the EX30 will become one of our best-selling models as we continue to work towards our local and global sustainability ambitions,” added Greg Maruszewski, Volvo Car SA MD (pictured below).

For those wanting to pick up a Volvo EX30, recommended pricing for the five different models in the range are as follows:

  • EX30 Core Single Motor – R775 900,
  • EX30 Plus Single Motor Extended Range – R865 900,
  • EX30 Plus Twin Motor Performance – R935 900,
  • EX30 Ultra Single Motor Extended Range – R965 900,
  • EX30 Ultra Twin Motor Performance – R995 900.

Volvo Cars SA also notes that the new all-electric SUV comes with a, “5-year/100 000km Volvo Warranty and Maintenance Plan, as well as 5-year/unlimited mileage Roadside Assistance, DataDot and Volvo On Call (SOS Roadside Assistance & 24/7 365 Personal Concierge). The battery pack is further covered by an 8-year warranty.”
