Back in September 2009, Volvo released their first presented driveable electric C30 prototype with original Volvo wheels on it. There was an updated prototype that appeared at the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, my guess is that it had 2010 Volvo 30 wheels on it… but that’s just me.
The field testing didn’t begin until 2011 in the U.S., Europe, and China. There were about 1000 test cars that were made; do you know how many Volvo rims that they had to make just for the test cars?! The car has a lithium-ion battery that’s supplied by US manufacturer EnerDel. It’s top speed is only 81 MPH with acceleration from 0–60 mph in under 11 seconds. So I guess the car isn’t that much of a sports car… but at least it has the OEM Volvo 30 wheels on it.
Would you buy this car?
