Introducing the all-electric Volvo C30 BEV
Yeah, it looks like a regular Volvo C30 allright, but this is model is a BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) currently evaluated by Volvo. This Lithium-Ion-battery powered and – if you use green electricity – close-to-zero-emissions car ought to look seriously interesting for city drivers and commuters, sporting a range of 150 kilometers, a top speed of 130 km/h and you’re able to recharge the battery via a regular power socket and a full charge takes about 8 hours.
“The consumer must feel that this type of car is attractive both to drive and own. In order to ensure this, we feel that electric cars will have to be as comfortable and safe and offer similar levels of performance as cars with other power sources.” says Paul Gustavsson, Director of Electrification Strategy at Volvo Cars.
