Volvo’s Small SUV with Smallest Carbon Footprint Arrives in UAE
Al-Futtaim Trading Enterprises is known for setting the standard in premium, innovative, environment-friendly driving in the UAE through its distinctive line-up of Volvo models.
Now with the new launch, the automotive distributor takes things up several notches, as the new Volvo EX30 gears up to accelerate EV adoption in the country.
The launch falls against the backdrop of a historic COP28 taking place in the UAE, where sustainability and green mobility are in focus with the mission to drive the transition towards zero emission cars. This was the ideal strategic moment to launch the Volvo EX30 in the UAE.
Available for advance booking now, the EX30 is Volvo’s first small premium SUV and expands the constantly growing, all-electric offering to four models.
A cornerstone of Volvo Cars’ electrification strategy and key in delivering to the brand’s growth ambitions, the EX30 launch comes close on the heels of the Al-Futtaim Group being announced as the Strategic E-Mobility Partner of COP28, running until 12 December 2023, at Expo City Dubai.
A diversified business conglomerate, Al-Futtaim Group’s participation in the historic global gathering at COP28 is a testament to its dynamic leadership across core economic sectors, including automotive, in the UAE and the Group’s long-standing commitment to sustainability.
Oscar Rivoli, Managing Director at Al-Futtaim's Trading Enterprises, said: “We are proud to announce the launch of the Volvo EX30 with Al-Futtaim Group being named COP28’s Strategic E-Mobility Partner.
"The newest addition to Volvo’s fully electric fleet, the Volvo EX30 is a compact SUV with a purpose-driven mission and a mighty green impact, delivering on everything customers want from a Volvo alongside the smallest CO2 footprint of any Volvo car to date.
"Like any Volvo, it’s an outstanding product which is safe and designed around people and their needs, while reinforcing Al-Futtaim’s Group commitment to sustainability and the market’s unwavering demand for the fast-growing EV segment.”
As a small SUV that does big Volvo things, the new fully electric Volvo EX30 is designed to be as safe as you would expect. It is designed to have the smallest CO2 footprint of any Volvo car to date, and to make people’s lives safer, more convenient and more enjoyable through cutting-edge technology and Scandinavian design.
The EX30 embodies all of Volvo’s design values in a smaller format. A long wheelbase, large wheels and equal overhangs bring balance and refinement to the exterior. It’s distinctly electric, with a confident face, closed shield and a digital rendition of the Thor’s Hammer headlights.
