Volvo claims the upcoming EX30 has the lowest environmental impact of all its cars to date.
The automaker said 25% of the aluminium and 17% of steel used in the model is sourced “sustainably”.
17% of plastics in the car are recycled.
Through the combination of multiple functions, fewer parts are required “without compromising on functionality”.
The factory uses 100% climate neutral electricity.
The interior uses eco-friendly materials for seats, dashboard and doors – denim, flax, and a wool blend which includes around 70% recycled polyester.
End of life recovery is estimated to be around 95%.
