Prices from launch start at £33,795, including three years of free servicing. But it's more likely that you'll be acquiring your EX30 with some kind of subscription package, and these from Volvo will start at £579 per month. There are two trim levels - 'Plus' (which references the price we just quoted) and plusher 'Ultra'. An additional entry-level 'Core' specification level is set to follow at a later date, which will lower the entry price to around £32,000. At the other end of the range, a rugged Cross Country variant with raised ground clearance, front and rear skid plates and bespoke 19-inch wheels will be added to the line-up later.
The 'Plus' version most will be looking at features all the kit you'd want and a bit more - especially in terms of media connectivity. That's taken care of by a large Google-based infotainment system showing on a 12.3-inch central portrait display, complete with wireless 'Apple CarPlay' smartphone-mirroring, plus heat for the front seats and steering wheel, a rear view parking camera and all-round parking sensors. 'Plus'-spec also gives you a Harmon Kardon audio system, 2-zone climate control and Volvo's 'Pilot Assist' semi-autonomous drive assist tech. In addition, you get an 11kW on-board charger; and a heat pump which draws warm from the ambient air to reduce the strain on the climate system. If you can stretch to top 'Ultra' trim, you get bigger 20-inch wheels, a panoramic glass roof, a 360-degree surround view parking camera system, powered front seats and a gutsier 22kW on-board charger.
