Unveiled: Volvo’s 2025 EX30 EV Starting Price Revealed!
Volvo's anticipated new electric crossover, the 2025 Volvo EX30, has made a commendable entry into the automobile market, maintaining its promise of affordability and variety in electric vehicle (EV) offerings. With a starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $34,950, the EX30, even after the inclusion of the $1,295 destination fee, stays beneath the typical transaction cost for new vehicles in the US.
The available trims offer choices between power and economy, ensuring there's something for both speed enthusiasts and those prioritizing distance. Buyers can opt for the Single Motor Extended Range in the Core, Plus, and Ultra trims or, for those who have a need for speed and aren’t as concerned about conserving range, the Twin Motor Performance available in Plus and Ultra trims has an appealing proposition.
Here's a concise price overview of the trims:
|Trim & Powertrain||Price|
|Single Motor Core||$36,245|
|Single Motor Plus||$40,195|
|Single Motor Ultra||$41,895|
|Twin Motor Performance Plus||$46,195|
|Twin Motor Performance Ultra||$47,895|
The substantial $9,950 price gap between the Single Motor Core and the Twin Motor Plus highlights the premium attached to the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive model. However, it's imperative to note that opting for the Single Motor variant doesn’t compromise on drive quality, as it operates on rear-wheel drive rather than front.
Unfortunately, the EX30, assembled in China, does not qualify for the federal tax credit. Despite this, Volvo's blend of style, affordability, and electric efficiency in the EX30 is set to engage potential EV buyers when it hits the dealerships in the first half of 2024. Existing deposit holders will be given the opportunity to configure their orders in the forthcoming months, ensuring they get a piece of Volvo's exciting new venture into the EV market.
This compact car won't make the list of the best 7 seater electric SUVs, but it offers convenience and efficiency.
