Expected to be out in the European markets probably by the end of this summer, Volvo C30 is all set to hit the markets at large. Currently, 250 cars are proposed to be built in the initial phase.

The Volvo C30 has to its credit many customer friendly features, which will definitely lure many Europeans to it. For instance, it could be charged via a standard household outlet! Besides, the looks of the car make it exactly similar to its gasoline version. The performance might not seem that promising for markets like US, which demands exceptionally high range. No matter, a maximum range of 93 miles (150 km) is apt enough for an average American EV buyer. Further, Volvo C30 can hit a top speed of 80 miles per hour and can accelerate from 0-30 miles per hour (50 kph) in 5 seconds.

So, who do you think will be the next automobile giant to hit the green headlines? Let’s know.
