At the Detroit Auto Show 2011 Volvo Cars is spotlighting the important issue of electric car safety in an unusual, but distinctive way. On the company's stand there is a Volvo C30 Electric that has undergone a frontal collision test at 40 mph (64 km/h). "Our tests show it is vital to separate the batteries from the electric car's crumple zones to make it as safe as a conventional car. In Detroit we are the first car maker to show the world what a truly safe electric car looks like after a collision with high-speed impact," says Volvo Cars' President and CEO Stefan Jacoby.

The Volvo C30 DRIVe Electric looks like a normal C30 inside and out. The
difference is that it is powered solely by electricity, entirely without Exhaust emissions, and has a range of up
to 150 kilometres. The Volvo C30 DRIVe Electric project has attracted a lot
of international attention with visits from many potential overseas
customers and the first sales contract has already been signed. Volvo Cars'
electric car project currently encompasses about 250 vehicles. The car has
a top speed of about 130 kilometres per hour and accelerates from zero to
one hundred in 10.5 seconds. The first ten C30 DRIVe Electric's will go to

► 2012 Volvo C30 Electric - Winter Tests
The Volvo C30 Electric has been exposed to gruelling winter conditions in
order to ensure that the battery-powered car runs smoothly in temperatures
as low as -20° Celsius. Volvo Cars' requirements on the C30 Electric are
just as stringent as on all other Volvo models and the battery-powered car
is exposed to the same test regime. On top of this, several new test
methods have been developed for the electric vehicles. All in all, over 200
different tests have been performed. The C30 Electric has a innovative
solution that makes it possible to get comfortable heating in cold winter
conditions without compromising the battery driving range. Climate control
in the passenger compartment takes place via a bio-ethanol powered heater
fitted in all cars. The car's ethanol tank can carry 14.5 litres of
bio-ethanol. 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.

New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle
occupants at risk in certain crashes
Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger
vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of
surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes
involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to
prevent potentially deadly underride.

New Volvo C30 Electric Car 2010
Volvo Cars presented a driveable electric car prototype in September 2009.
The C30 now being shown in Detroit takes the company one step further in
the development process. It features both a complete interior and full
instrumentation, as well as enhanced battery packaging. The next step in
2010 is a factory-built series of test cars. Selected users will drive the
test fleet during a two-year trial period in order to provide Volvo Cars
with valuable experience. The Swedish Energy Agency is supporting the
project by contributing SEK 150 million towards its funding.
