Volvo, the Swedish carmaker that’s promised to skip all the worst trends in the automotive space, is ready to unleash its next all-electric vehicle. On June 7th, it’ll unveil its new compact electric SUV, the Volvo EX30.
While we’re still waiting for the luxurious three-row Volvo EX90 EV to hit the streets, the company isn’t wasting any time showing off what’s coming next. Volvo’s teaser video and press release didn’t share too many details, aside from showing a compact and boxy SUV sitting under a giant hand.
We can’t gather much from the teaser video, but it’s clear that this will be a compact EV. According to The Verge, Volvo targets a younger crowd with this release and thinks it could be the perfect small SUV for the younger generation or first-time buyers.
“Thinking small is one of our biggest ideas,” the company said in its press release. We get a brief glimpse of the curvy front end with an LED lightbar extending the entire body width, a view of the boxy rear, and a quick look at the interior. Again, the video doesn’t reveal much.
However, the all-new, fully electric Volvo EX30 SUV will debut globally on June 7th. Then, depending on the market, it’ll be available for pre-order on the same day.
The small SUV could be ideal for city driving, but it’ll also have to take on the Tesla Model Y, Polestar 4, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and other affordable EVs coming soon, like the Chevy Equinox. Stay tuned for more details in a few weeks.
