China tries out Volvo’s electric car

THE ELECTRIC version of C30 has been named China’s Car of the Year.

International Automotive located at the western outskirts of is much like that in Sta. Rosa City in where automotive companies  and industries are just a stone’s from each other.

known as the Shanghai Auto SIAC is revving up for accelerated and upgrading, having listed vehicles as a crucial component in its deployment.

Within this property (to give one an idea, Rosa City has a

total area of 5,413 ha), 15 individuals will be able to for 100 days, Volvo’s greenest the C30 Electric.

At first, driving all-electric, four-seat, two-door may seem unimpressive considering are already a number of electric car that

have popped up on streets the world.

But the C30 Electric is probably one of the few to be certified crash safe, passed a frontal collision at 64 kph as well as offset collision in which 40 percent of the front hit a at 64 kph.

The car has also undergone, and passed, other accident tests such as side and rear-end impacts.

Same safety level

In all these the C30 Electric prove to offer the same high safety that its gasoline counterpart also earned: The front and distributed the crash energy as both the batteries and the cables are part of the electric system entirely intact after collision; and power is cut within 50 after the collision, at the same the airbags are deployed.

No wonder this car was declared Car of the Year” in China during the 4th China New Energy Mobility as well as earn its inclusion in the pioneering open road project called EV100

The SAIC was one of the Shanghai City key development projects in the 10th development plan period and aspires to be nothing less the largest, most complete vehicle production and showcasing in the world.

15 C30 Electrics

A fleet of 15 C30 Electrics will join EV100 real r

oad test-driving, volunteer test drivers, popular TV anchors from as well as consulate officials Sweden will drive the cars everyday as well

as a driver journals for three

The deployment of these 15 C30 Electrics may be significant since SAIC has a traffic and road condition as as climate. The rest of the 250 C30 Electrics are in Sweden, Norway, Belgium, the France, Germany, and the United

Volvo in a statement, will use the of the drivers to learn more driving habits as well as how the C30 stands up to rigorous daily and climates.

These experiences be used by Volvo should the automaker decides to make a version of the C30 Electric.

READY for the test drive: A fleet of 15 C30 Electrics joined SIAC’s real road test-driving.

The trial will also Volvo engineers insights on issues facing electric car including insurance, maintenance and charging.

The C30 Electric is part of ambitious electrification strategy. It is an car to be included in the SAIC’s EV100 as the is well-equipped, comfortable, sporty and as its standard counterpart.

In fact, it looks like the C30 save for the decals. The difference in the weight as well as what be found underneath.

Because of the two of 24-kWh Lithium-ion batteries tip the scale at 280 kg—the C30 Electric 300 kg more than the standard

Instead of the 227 horsepower 2.5-liter engine, the C30 Electric is equipped an 82-kW electric motor generates 110 hp.

This enables the C30 to modestly accelerate from to 100 kph in about 6 seconds (same as the gasoline-powered C30) and attain a

speed of 130 kph.

150 km on single

With a fully charged to 10 hours using a 220-volt socket—the C30 Electric will run 150 km, is more than enough to get one to (129 km), Lucena in (131 km) if coming from

Volvo stated that 150 km is a longer distance than 90 of all commuters in the world cover per average figure is 45 km/day—which the C30 Electric could be used for commuting.

Interestingly, the C30 Electric is the Volvo to be fitted with brake discs made of aluminum, which not only in weight reduction but also long term reliability the brakes are used less

due to the efficient motor regeneration).

Due to such as increased weight and weight distribution, Volvo’s system DSTC has been in the C30 Electric to ensure that the version has the same high pleasure and safety level as the C30.

Of course, energy-efficiency is the main why the market should be interested in electric car. Drivers be glad to know that electric car is almost four more energy-efficient than a engine.

If this electric car is using renewable energy (if the uses wind, hydro, or power energy to generate the C30 Electric produces virtually no dioxide emissions.
