Just wanted to mention that on both Car and Driver and Motor Trend, pricing has been released for the various trim levels for the single motor and dual performance EX30.

Single Motor Extended Range EX30:
Core - $36,245
Plus - $40,195
Ultra - $41,895

Dual Motor Performance EX30:
Plus - $46,195
Ultra - $47,895

Core comes standard with the 12.3" tablet central display with Google built-in (Google maps/assistant), wireless Apple CarPlay, and a bevy of advanced safety features
Plus includes Harman Kardon sound system, dual top panoramic roof in Onyx Black, and 19" wheels
Ultra gives the next generation of Pilot Assist with Lane Change Assistance, a 360-degree camera with 3D view, and Park Pilot Assist.


After reviewing this info, I am curious what speakers come standard in the EX30. Depending on that and knowing it is $6,000 more just for the second motor, I might just buy the Single Motor Core level. I don't know if it is worth almost $4,000 for upgraded stereo, panoramic roof, and 19-in wheels. I am also curious what the standard wheels are on the Core, if they are maybe 18". I feel upgrading to Plus just isn't worth the extra money and I'm curious what others think. Basically, if I bought the Core trim level with the $7,500 lease credit, I could own the car for under $30,000 and would be an awesome commuter car. I could forego all of the other goodies in the higher trims and probably be just fine taking this on long road trips. I am open to convincing otherwise if I'm missing something!

Remember the Core can only be had with the Indigo interior, and it doesn't get the Moss Yellow option either.

Core is on 18" wheels as is the single motor Plus.

You need to check out the full list of differences - there are a lot of others. Since the UK doesn't have the Core spec yet, I've downloaded the German brochure and translated it - here's the summary page for the Core and Ultra upgrades:

Thanks for this. I haven't seen any other details other than what the media has been reporting. They also said the single motor Plus will have 19" wheels here in the US so the Core will be the only trim with 18" wheels.

It's also interesting to see that the Ultra has a 22kW charger on board. It makes me curious how slow the onboard charger is for the Core and Plus trim because that could be a gamechanger. Certainly a number of fine details here for the plus and ultra that would make me go Ultra (power seats with memory and lumbar, auto-dimming mirrors, etc.).

Really need to go through it with a fine-tooth comb when they release all of the details for the US models.

That's because only the larger battery will be offered.

In other countries the Plus trim with small battery comes with 18" and the large battery with 19".

Ah, gotta love automatic translators.

"Driver's side interior and exterior mirror with automatic dimming"

is a bit weird. I am scratching my head over what a driver's side interior mirror would be. The phrasing

'Interior mirror and driver's side exterior mirror with automatic dimming'

seems more precise... assuming that's really what's meant.

Agreed. Literal translations are always off. I hope the configurator goes live soon here in the US so I can really dig into the details for what each trim level contains. I'm guessing I will have to get at least the Plus to get the features I really want for convenience and faster charging on road trips.
