Volvo C30 Electric production begins
Leasing customers, companies, authorities and government departments in Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands and Norway will be the first to get hold of the pure electric C30.
The C30 Electric is made alongside normal C30s in Ghent, Belgium, but is then transported to Volvo's HQ in Gothenberg, Sweden for the installation of the batteries, motor and electronic systems. The batteries are located in place of the fuel tank and also in a compartment within the central tunnel - there is no change to the luggage compartment.
Volvo has no plans to bring the C30 Electric to the UK at the moment.
