Volvo's first small SUV will also be its greenest electric vehicle yet.
Since announcing in 2019 that it wanted to a climate neutral company by 2040, Volvo Cars has been looking for ways to slash its life cycle carbon footprint.
By tackling emissions across the EX30's entire production and life cycle Volvo reduced the small SUV's total carbon footprint over 200,000 km of driving to less than 30 metric tons.
That is 25 percent below the carbon footprints of the C40 and XC40 EVs.
Volvo aims to cut its overall CO2 emissions per car by 40 percent to 31.8 tons of CO2 per car by 2025 from 53 tons in 2018.
"Our new EX30 is a big step in the right direction for our sustainability ambitions," Anders Kärrberg, Volvo's global head of sustainability, said in a release.
