The new permanent magnet motor features a better efficiency than the predecessor model. In addition, it offers a higher torque of 250nm, 30nm more than the previous version. Siemens also increased the power from 82kW to 89kW. In addition to the motor, Siemens also provides a new inverter, which offers a higher power density.

The C30electric is, obviously, the electric version of Volvo’s C30 model. The production of the base model has been ceased in December 2012. A Volvo spokesperson explained that the electric version is not intended for serial production. Volvo will build a certain number of vehicles for Siemens’ company vehicle fleet. Here, Siemens hopes to prove the suitability for everyday use and gain further experience in the specific requirements to electric drives.
