Volvo C30 Electric 2012

Volvo has brought good for car and environment lovers alike the introduction of the 2012 Volvo C30 . The use of electricity as the main source of gives this three-door a whole new extension. The car and its engine has designed in such a way that with electric propulsion, the car excellent stability at high thus ensuring a smoother drive experience.

If we take a on the exteriors of this car, find that Volvo take any chance with the of the car. While the front of the car is enough to give this a sporty look, the futuristic of the car imparts a rather luxurious to it.

On the other hand, the interior of the car too been made equally with the inclusion of unconventional and spacious leg and head rooms. The feature classy and contrasting seats and two different displays, central information screen dial display. The displays give a feedback on the speed, consumption and battery charge

If we take a look at the engine of the car, we’d find the car features a 24kWh battery pack at the usual fuel-tank an electric motor capable of 111HP power with a torque of 220Nm, and a 400V system. The battery pack of the car has a time of eight-hours using a 13A socket.

Moreover, at the usual location, the car features a chrome for forward, reverse and neutral Top speed of this vehicle has kept at 80miles/hour. On a single of its batteries, the car can travel a distance of 93 without releasing any carbon the atmosphere.

The Volvo C30 is equipped with a sophisticated system with technical cooperating in order to tackle different challenges:

The Volvo C30 Electric can be preconditioned for the when it is being charged. The timer is programmed via the car’s settings. When activated, an heater (6 kW) uses power the wall socket for warming up the in the climate system.

The heating is for maintaining the battery in good condition — and for pre-heating the compartment.

Volvo Car Corporation has a unique monitoring system to the lifespan of the battery pack. charging, the battery pack is automatically when the temperature — 15 C in the core of the battery.
