We’ve got to go electric but the current technology isn’t exactly on our side as far as the reliability is concerned so there’s still a lot of testing before it happens.
In working towards improving the most tedious aspect of the electric cars, Volvo sent their electric C30 DrivE to the Arctic Circle for some rough stuff.
The Swedish have already been telling us about the Volvo C30 DrivE and their pricing or lease plans for it but it seems like they really want to stand out with this car.
The sub-zero temperatures should provide ample testing conditions for the Volvo C30 DrivE, and especially its lithium-ion battery.
As it is, while they will occupy a large part of the verification process but as this is Volvo there’s a lot of safety systems that are going to be put through their paces.
The electric Volvo C30 DrivE is powered by a motor that’s capable of developing up to 110 horsepower and putting sufficient performance at the disposal of one of the owners.
Acceleration from 0 to 62 is supposed to take just 10.5 seconds and the feeling should continue up to a top speed of 80.7 mph.
