Volvo Bahrain has unveiled the EX30, the marque’s first small premium SUV and the newest model in its all-electric lineup.

The launch was made during the inaugural edition of EV Forum, Bahrain’s first electric vehicle forum, held at the Gulf Hotel and organized by the Bahrain Insurance Association.

Debuting under the motto ‘Small Yet Mighty’, the EX30 is designed to have the smallest CO2 footprint of any Volvo car to date. The exterior features a long wheelbase, large wheels, equal overhangs, and a digital rendition of the Thor’s Hammer headlights.

Scandinavian Interior promotes sustainable thinking using recycled and renewable materials such as denim, flax, and wool. Customers can choose from three powertrain options and two different battery types. The new model also contains state-of-the-art restraint technology and a robust structural design that meets Volvo’s strict safety requirements.

With an electric range of 476km, the EX30 can go from 0 to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds and charges fully in only 26 minutes. Other features include connectivity through the Volvo app, driver support that includes adaptive cruise with pilot assistance, digital key access, built-in Google services, Harman Kardon premium sound bar, and a 12.3-inch touch screen.

Volvo Regional Business Manager – Middle East, John Duggan said that, “The new all-electric Volvo EX30 is an important enabler for us to facilitate electrification in our markets, including Bahrain. Geographical dimensions and other factors provide a perfect opportunity for fast adoption of electric mobility in the Kingdom and positioning it as a potential regional leader in this field.”

“Sustainability, together with safety and innovation, are at the very core of Volvo DNA, and EX30 combines all these elements and brings them to the next level. We strongly believe that the EX30’s mix of sustainability, safety, and innovation brings a strong value proposition to all our markets and will attract a new audience to the Volvo brand,” Duggan further added.
