The volvo C30 electronic from 0 to 100 in 10,5 seconds

The Swedish automaker Volvo is set to unveil a complete battery electric Volvo C30 this January at the 2010 North American Auto Show in Detroit. The all new zero emissions vehicle will have a range of 150 km and is Volvo’s next step towards a production version of their Recharge concept car. The safety conscious car builder is currently preparing a test fleet consisting of at least 50 electric Volvo C30s which will be used as real world test beds starting in 2011.

The electric C30 is powered by a Lithium-Ion battery pack that can be recharged via either a standard household outlet or a special high capacity roadside charging station. A fill up will take about eight hours, but will be reduced when connected with a high speed charging station. With the batteries topped off, the Electric C30 can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in 11 seconds while the BEV’s top speed is up around 81 MPH. The electrified C30 has a range of 94 miles and has no gears which means that the motor’s power is delivered seamlessly, and because of the electric motors gobs of torque are available instantaneously.
