Volvo C30 Drive Electric Car Displayed at Los Angeles Auto Show
Volvo C30 Drive Electric gets positive reviews; car accelerate to 60 mph in 11 seconds and can travel over 90 miles between charges
Volvo has long been known for producing well-built cars with safety-first features, and now it’s planning to become known for the attractive design and environmental benefits of the stylish Volvo C30 Drive Electric, an electric car that turns heads as easily as it turns corners.
The non-electric version of Volvo C30 is the automaker’s practical yet smart-looking hatchback, a current model with plenty of custom options available. Through November 28 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Volvo is focusing on the more environmentally friendly, electric version of the car. The Volvo C30 Drive Electric is not yet in production here in the US, but Volvo is manufacturing fleet cars for government use in Europe, and is making plans to bring a test fleet of the new Volvo C30 Drive Electric to California.
Early reviews of the Volvo C30 Drive Electric from bloggers and test drivers have been flattering. The C30 Drive Electric is large by European criteria, but it is the smallest and lightest car in Volvo’s lineup. Powered by two lithium batteries in the trunk and under the hood, the all electric car can accelerate to 60 mph in 11 seconds and can travel over 90 miles between charges. Charging takes about 8 hours on a 220-volt household electrical outlet.
So if you’re longing for an electric car with quality components, handsome design, and a hatchback, you may want to drop by the LA Auto Show and view the Volvo C30 electric car. Zero emission cars like this are the wave of the future and should make city driving a whole lot greener than it has been. Let’s hope financial incentives to drive electric cars continue to make the Volvo C30 Drive Electric and others even more attractive to consumers.
