Before the first models have even been able to reach customers, the new Volvo EX30 has already been honoured with its first major awards. The Sun have named it their Car of the Year and it has also been awarded Small SUV/Crossover of the Year by the News UK Motor Awards.

These accolades perfectly highlight the qualities that make the EX30 the benchmark model in its class: a choice of pure electric powertrains, cutting-edge technology, and Volvo quality, safety, and design, all at an accessible price.

Rob Gill, The Sun Motors Editor, said: “The EX30 is everything you expect a modern Volvo to be – safe, Scandi cool and sustainable – at a price you’d never expect…The EX30 is going to be a huge hit. We’re utterly convinced of it. Not only does it take home our Small SUV/Crossover of the Year crown, it is the stand-out winner as The Sun Car of the Year.”

The News UK Small SUV/Crossover award represents the support that thew new EX30 model is already receiving from across the organisation’s publications, including the Sunday Times. Its Motoring Editor, Nick Rufford, commented: “Savvy buyers have been holding out for an electric SUV that’s smart looking, has vim and zest, and doesn’t break the bank. This mini-Volvo’s starting price undercuts not only its electric rivals, but plenty of petrol SUVs, too.”

Kristian Elvefors, Volvo Car UK Managing Director, said: “We could not hope for a better response to our newest model. These awards confirm our belief that the Volvo EX30 will help us reshape people’s perceptions of pure electric motoring with a car that suits their lifestyles, their driving needs and, importantly, their budgets…Its success will be pivotal to the growth of our brand, taking our leadership in electrified motoring to a higher level.”
