2024 Volvo EX30

Not sure how I feel about no leather seats - and then also the fact that there is no instrument panel behind the steering-wheel - having said that, that is probably how they've managed to keep this much tech at that price.

Other than the above, I think it's a brilliant car!
 
Does the Volvo EX30 have a spare wheel, or runflats ?

Else you may be taking your life in your hands by driving on SA roads with this vehicle.

Wife saw one last week at Tom Campher Auckland Park and she said it didn't have a spare wheel - I'll double check this weekend as well if we go for the test drive

That story of rims / tyres is biting me right now - my OEM rims are cracked and cant be fixed by the supa quicks of this world so i now need new rims :-|

Please report back. Ask them if there is an optional marie biscuit spare, and if there is, how much does it cost and how much luggage space do you have left after installing it ?
 
Volvo EX30 Performance review

Verdict

The Volvo EX30 Performance is an exciting car and one that is not necessarily purchased driven by rational thinking. The little EX30 excels in delivering joy when you drive it and that certainly counts for something. The amount of instant power, which kicks you in the back is a sensation that never gets old, and if you are not careful can easily get you into trouble with the law.

Beyonds its pefromance version the EX30 is a perfectly capable daily vehicle, serving its intended purpose of getting you around town. It offers sufficient space, adequate trunk and cutting-edge tech. It isn’t the most efficient vehicle by any means, but its great charging capabilities certainly help reduce the range anxiety.

We totally get those that find the Volvo EX30 too minimalist, but they aren't the target audience for it. Instead the most powerful Volvo yet is intended for people who want Tesla’s simplicity and speed, but in a smaller package and coming from a traditional manufacturer with a fantastic dealership network and proven reliability. As such the EX30 covers a segment that should have no shortage of customers.

There is currently one and only one thing stopping me from buying any electric car right now - and believe me i'm at the tip of readyness to get one.

I am worried the resale value is going to plummet like an anvil over the edge of a cliff.
