Volvo EX30 electric SUV with 439 km range in the works

The Volvo EX30 could be positioned below the XC40 Recharge.

Volvo is said to be working on a small electric SUV called the EX30. The new model could be positioned below the XC40 Recharge.

According to a media report, Volvo has applied for the ‘EX30’ trademark, where ‘E’ stands for electrification and ‘X’ denotes SUV. The number ‘30’ indicates that this will be the smallest electric car in Volvo’s line-up.

The report further states that the EX30 could be based on Geely’s Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA). It’s a modular platform that can support a wide range of vehicles. It will also be used by Volvo’s Polestar sub-brand.

The most compact version of the SEA platform called the SEA-E is currently being used on the Smart #1, which is expected to rival the Volvo EX30. It is powered by a 66 kWh battery offering a range of 439 km on a single charge.
