Volvo has recently updated the final production version of the C30 electric, ahead of its market arrival this summer.
According to the Swedish based automaker, the Volvo C30 electric will become available to its future customers in some European markets in a lease system this summer, but before arriving in dealerships, the model has received some updates which will improve its performance. The Volvo C30 electric is now being offered with a quick charger system which can reduce the charging time from 8 to 10 hours to just one and a half hours when using a three-phase socket.
The electric vehicle signed by Volvo is also getting a new motor, which is now producing a total output of 120 HP and it has a peak torque of 250 Nm. This is enough for a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration of 10.7 seconds. Top speed stands at 125 km/h, and this has been electronically limited in order to assure a longer range, which now stands at between 120 and 150 km, with a full battery, in real-world conditions. For short trips, the C30 electric now has a special function, which allows the battery to be filled in 10 minutes. This will allow you to drive the car 20 km.
