The safety cage, A, B, and C pillars, as well as the roof, have been reinforced to protect occupants in the event of a crash. Additionally, particular attention has been given to the battery integrity with the chassis and safety cage featuring various combinations of high-strength steel to effectively mitigate impact forces.

The EX30 will also get a far-side airbag on the inside of the driver's seat. This feature aims to reduce head and thorax injuries in the case of a side impact. The SUV will also pack in an array of sensors to monitor various driving parameters including one to monitor the driver’s eyes and facial movements to detect drowsiness and distractions.

The EX30 will also feature a new intersection auto brake feature that will automatically apply the brakes if another vehicle unexpectedly crosses the car's path, helping to mitigate or avoid a collision.

The Volvo EX30 will make its global debut on June 7, 2023.
