Regarding electric cars, about 11,000 were sold, accounting for 22% of all sales for the first time and showing a 14% rise from the previous year. However, use caution since 5,863, or more than half, matched the Volvo EX30, whose commercial debut is still pending.

The Volvo EX30 enters on the right foot

The first version has a motor and 272 HP, with a WLTP range of up to 334 km and a 49 kWh LFP battery; the second version has a larger NCM battery and 480 km of range; and the third version has two motors, 4×4 traction, and 428 HP, with a 460 km electric range.
