The Volvo C30 Electric has been exposed to rough winter conditions to ensure that the battery-powered car runs smoothly in temperatures as low as -20°C (-4 ºF).

Citing a corporate emphasis on vehicle electrification, Volvo Car Corp. has announced that it plans to fill about 1200 mainly technical positions over the next year. The majority of the new recruitments will be engineers within Research and Development. Of the 1000 new hires planned for its Swedish operations, about 900 will be engineers, mainly in product development, according to the company. In Belgium, about 200 people will be recruited to the Ghent manufacturing plant. "This is one of the biggest recruitment projects that Volvo Car Corp. ever has carried out," said Björn Sällström, the company's Senior Vice President Human Resources, in a press release. Volvo Car Corp. is owned by Chinese automaker Geely. Among Volvo's electrification initiatives is the C30 Electric, now under test.
