The Volvo EX90: A testament of Volvo’s EV ambition

The Volvo EX90: A testament of Volvo’s EV ambition

Taking a step closer to its ambition, the 2024 Volvo EX90 is a commitment to its pledge to become a fully electric car company by 2030. Built around the same platform as the 2024 Polestar 3, the new flagship SUV falls under the brand’s premium category, positioning above the petrol-powered Volvo XC90.

Taking inspiration from the Concept Recharge show car from 2021, the futuristic-looking EV is nothing short of impressive with its attention-riveting appearance. The pristinely clean outlook is elevated with a pair of brightly illuminated, dreamy LED headlamps that call to mind “Thor’s Hammer”. The streamlined silhouette is further animated with graceful lines and an immaculately cut rim.

The Volvo EX90’s interior design is characterised by a minimal and clutter-free approach, exuding a feeling of stepping into Scandinavian architecture. The frills, like the physical buttons and switches, are eliminated and replaced with a large touchscreen infotainment system that gives access to the Volvo EX90’s controls. The hallmarks of Nordic aesthetics are also evident with the incorporation of roomy space and a large glass roof that invites natural light. Upholstery-wise, the Swedish marque banishes the use of leather and opts for eco-friendly materials made of wool fabric blended with plastic recovered from recycled bottles — a testimony to its cornerstone of sustainability.

What about its powertrain offering? Two options, namely the Twin Motor and Twin Motor Performance, will deliver 408 PS and 770 Nm and 517 PS and 910 Nm, respectively. Powered by a lithium-ion battery with 111 kWh of capacity (107 kWh usable), the estimated range for the Twin Motor is 600 km, and that of Twin Motor Performance is 590 km. With the Twin Motor variant, the electric vehicle will go from 0-100km/h in 5.9 seconds, while the more powerful Twin Motor Performance variant can easily chalk up the benchmark sprint in just 4.9 seconds.
