Default Replacing Stove Top with Range

We are remodeling and will be changing out our stove top with a range. The current wiring is bx cable with one red, one black and one white wire. The current breaker is 2 - 2 pole 30 amp breakers. The installation manual states "You must us a 3-wire, single-phase A.C. 208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60 hertz electrical system." The appliance store sold us a 3 pole -4 wire surface mount range outlet (requiring 2 hot wires, one neutral and one ground) and a 4 wire range power cord. Will we be able to utilize the existing wiring for the new range or should we just run new from the box?

seeing that they used BX cable to run to the old unit, I would recommend running a new ground or hardpiping to the box carrying your new outlet and if hard piping(conduit), ground the outlet to the junction box. everything else sounds fine.
