The word

Volvo C30 DriveE

The ten vehicles will have specially-equipped advanced measuring instruments to gather data regarding driving habits, charging patterns, and more. This is part of a joint study between Volvo and Goteborg Energi to see how electric cars behave in the real world and how they will affect infrastructure.

The Volvo C30 DriveE has a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack from EnerDel, a range of about 93 miles per charge and a top speed of 81mph.

Volvo is targeting a broad release of the C30 DriveE in 2013.
