Volvo C30 Electric tested in extreme conditions
The Volvo C30 Electric has been exposed to rough winter conditions in order to ensure that the battery-powered car runs smoothly in temperatures as low as -20° Celsius. All in all, over 200 different tests have been performed. Climate control in the passenger compartment takes place via a bio-ethanol (14.5 liter tank) powered heater fitted in all cars. It is also possible to run the climate unit on electricity from the batteries. In electric mode an immersion heater warms up the coolant in the climate unit.
