The estimated range for the EX30 is up to 480 kilometers for the single motor variant and up to 460 kilometers for the twin motor variant.
The interior of the EX30 is designed with sustainability in mind, incorporating recycled and renewable materials such as New Zealand wool and denim upholstery made from denim recycling waste fibers. The cabin features a minimalist dashboard equipped with a 12.3-inch tablet screen, offering modern convenience and functionality.
In terms of aesthetics, the EX30 offers five distinctive exterior colors, including a unique Moss Yellow option. The SUV features updated ‘Thor’s Hammer’ signature headlights and a large fixed panoramic glass roof, providing a stylish and spacious interior.
Additional features of the EX30 include a soundbar speaker system, a new 12.3-inch tablet display with built-in Google apps and services, ergonomic seat design for increased comfort, enhanced interior air quality, and smart storage solutions.
