Volvo has been teasing its upcoming entry-level electric SUV, the EX30, for a long time now. The Swedish automaker has teased it several times before the small luxury electric car is set to debut next month. Most recently, the car brand’s online configurator briefly showed the EV before quickly removing it. However, this is enough for us to grab screenshots.
The Volvo EX30 electric SUV is a pure electric model following the C40 and XC40 of the automobile company. The upcoming EX30 will be significantly smaller, even smaller than the XC40 launched in India. However, the Volvo EX30 electric SUV will feature the car brand’s signature styling elements. As the teaser images suggest, the SUV will feature Volvo’s signature Thor’s Hammer LED headlights, a front profile closure panel and vertically positioned LED taillights. Obviously, the car’s design has been influenced by Volvo’s other SUVs.
