Volvo EX30 to Introduce Cross Country Variant in 2024!
Volvo announced at the launch event of its new 2025 Volvo EX30 in Italy that it plans to release an electric Cross Country version of the SUV next year. This will be the first time Volvo introduces a fully electric Cross Country and also the first time this feature will be seen in any of its crossovers or SUVs.
The Volvo EX30 Cross Country will feature an updo resembling other Cross Country cars from the brand, boasting a raised ride height and cladding around the wheel arches. The car will come with skid plates to protect the underside, black panels on the front bumper and hatch for decoration, Cross Country branding, and a Swedish flag on the hood.
Volvo has not yet disclosed any information regarding the powertrain specifications of the Cross Country. However, it is highly likely that it will feature the all-wheel-drive Twin Motor Performance EX30 to maintain the Cross Country's off-road capabilities. This powertrain is expected to comprise a 69 kWh battery pack and two electric motors that can deliver 422 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. It remains uncertain if the Cross Country's additional features will affect the EX30 Twin Motor's 265-mile range.
The automaker has confirmed that the EX30 Cross Country model will come with 19-inch black wheels as a standard feature. However, the company also acknowledges the advantages of smaller wheels and stronger tires for a sturdy vehicle like this one. Therefore, 18-inch wheels with unique tires will be offered as an alternative option.
The Cross Country variant of the 2025 Volvo EX30 will be up for pre-order right after its launch, just like the standard version. While the exact date of its availability is not yet confirmed, Volvo anticipates the Cross Country to commence production by the end of 2024.
