The almost all-electric nomenclature was given to this car because of the presence of an ethanol-burning heater inside it to provide the passengers with adequate heat in cold climates.

The company has always highlighted this car’s climate control system which has been specifically designed to maximize the vehicle’s range in cold climates.

The pre-conditioning system uses an immersion heater to warm the battery and passenger compartment when the vehicle is charging. While the system runs on a pre-programmed schedule, it will automatically activate when the temperature reaches -15° C (5° F) in the core of the battery.

The Volvo C30 BEV is currently powered by a highly efficient Lithium-ion battery that can be recharged through a regular A/C power outlet and after eight hours the car is fully ready to travel up to 150 kilometers.

Perfect for the everyday commute to work or even a quiet and carefree Sunday drive, the car is an absolute delight for day-to-day commuting. The electric C30 is limited to 130 km/h and it can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 11 seconds.

Volvo feels that electricity is the fuel of the future and that zero emissions highways are what the next generation of new car buyers will be looking for.
