A small batch of EX30’s deliveries started in January and April this year. Around 35,000 EX30s have been sold but the recall is issued for 71,956 units produced so far.

This full-fledged software fix follows Volvo’s recall with Australia’s Department of Infrastructure, Transport Regional Development, Communications and the Arts issued on May 23, 2024. The recall covers 1,255 units of EX30 models ranging from 2023-2024.

The letter explains that the infotainment unit screen may enter a test mode during the start-up of the vehicle. This may prevent the user from using key functionality such as accessing the vehicle’s speed. It is mentioned that customers can contact their authorized Volvo retailer if the OTA update doesn’t work.
