Volvo’s got a reputation for building some of the safest cars around, and as Lennart Stegland, President of Volvo special vehicles, tells us that applies to electric vehicles, too. Stegland explains to me that Volvo placed the batteries down the center of Volvo’s C30 to make sure that if a crash occurs the battery will be safe. However, the C30 is by no means a commercial-ready car — it’s still in the prototype phase — but for this week’s episode of the Green Overdrive show we drove the C30 down at the LA Auto Show.

  3. I love the design of the C30 but unfortunately they don’t sell it with any fuel efficient engines in the US. It’s a pity.
