The core attribute of a vehicle is safety. The Swedish is applying the same commitment to on slow, conservative and rigorous and development—to its electric cars and hybrids.

Why go slow when EV buyers are impatiently waiting? the prospect of a single well-publicized accident in an electric car or plug-in could derail the entire toward vehicle electrification. All the car companies producing plug-in are concerned about such an in keeping with Volvo’s for safety—the company is testing its prototypes perhaps harder and than anybody in the industry.

This conservative approach is in the Volvo C30 EV, the all-electric four-seat sedan unveiled at the 2010 auto show. At first the stats may seem unimpressive: a of about 90 miles, acceleration 0-60 mph in 11 seconds, a top speed of 80 miles per hour, and a leisurely hours to recharge the 24 kilowatt-hour pack from 220-volt outlet.

Volvo push these numbers or race to bring the car to market but it isn’t. Instead, the company is down and chilling out—and sure that customers’ are met. It#8217;s not promising charging, game-changing driving or head-turning speed.

And you won’t see a plug-in Volvo on the this year, next or maybe not the year after. the company will build and 50 electric C30s in Europe—to sure they stand up the test of time and in every crash scenario.

“In order to reduce the effects of a the battery is well protected and from the car#8217;s crumple The battery is also sturdily Steel beams and other of the structure around the battery are to help protect it from affected in a collision.

If the battery is resulting in gas leakage, there are evacuation ducts that the gas out under the car. In the event of heat, the occupants are shielded by the encapsulation. At the very moment of crash sensors linked to the send information about the to the car#8217;s computer, which shuts off the power supply to the risk of a short-circuit.”

The C30 has 600 pounds of lithium ion batteries to Half of them will go in the where the C30’s gas tank is placed (safely placed in of the rear axle), and the other are placed in the middle tunnel Those batteries don’t fit in a C30.

Moreover, some batteries can being crushed and other while some batteries can be safely from one angle but not Therefore, the lion’s share of work on electric cars and hybrids is focusing on completely new and aerodynamic platforms to accommodate the and related electric technology.
