Volvo has revealed the EX30 SUV as the fastest-accelerating vehicle ever produced by the Swedish automotive giant.
Volvo EX30 SUV has been revealed making it one of the most powerful cars ever produced by the Swedish car marque.

In terms of styling, it borrows some elements from the larger and more premium EX90 like the rectangular modules in the LED headlamps with the ‘Thor’s Hammer’ pattern.
