The Volvo EX30 Single Motor has a maximum power of 200 KW (272 hp/268 bhp). The total torque is 343 nm (253 ft-lb). It performs the 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) in 5.3 seconds. The top speed is 180 km/h.
Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 51kWh and a net capacity of 49kWh, meaning you have a 2kWh buffer for protection. (3.9%). The Lithium-Ion battery uses LFP technology. This has some benefits and disadvantages from the typical NCA/NCM batteries.
The WLTP range is 344 km (214 mi). The consumption is 14.2kWh/100km for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is 153kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 63 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 24 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 4% to 56%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 84kW. Each charge session would take 18 minutes and 15 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 28kWh/100km, 1000km will take 11 hours and 7 minutes. This trip will require eight charge session(s) charging from 3% to 62%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 167 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the standard onboard charger supports up to 11 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 4 hours and 27 minutes.
The location of the charge port is on the left rear side. This location makes it easy to use charge stations where you need to back up into the charger. The connector types vary between the different markets. This model uses CCS Combo 1 for North America and for Europe, CCS Combo 2. See full specifications for all markets.
