Volvo to show C30 EV concept at Frankfurt

According to Autocar Volvo has confirmed it is working an all-electric C30, although it currently has no plans to put it into production.

The Swedish firm will demonstrate a fully operational version of the all-electric C30 as part of its Innovation for Life event, which will be held shortly after the Frankfurt Auto Show.

The C30 formed the basis of the Recharge concept shown a few years ago but the wheel motor supplier PML late last year fell into administration (bankrupt) with the wheel motor side of the business splitting off. It is not known if Volvo are still working with PML or Proteanelectric as they are now called.

Volvo say they are using the C30 EV as an evaluation concept. Volvo has pledged to bring a diesel plug-in electric hybrid V70 to market by 2012, and an all-electric C30 is seen as an extension of this project.
