Jim Rowan, Volvo’s Chief Executive, said, “The fully electric Volvo EX90 is the start of a new era for Volvo Cars – a new era for safety, sustainability, and human-centric technology. The EX90 is proudly manufactured in the USA and reflects our long-term commitment to our people in South Carolina and the broader US market.”

 

The Volvo EX90 started production after a long wait since it first debuted in November 2022. However, plans were delayed after the automaker encountered software issues. The three-row electric SUV will co-exist with the brand’s Volvo XC90. It rides on a new platform drawing power from a 111-kWh battery pack that promises a range of 600 km (WLTP).

Volvo says the new EX90 is the brand’s safest car to date. 

 

Power on the Volvo EX90 comes from the Twin Motor Performance on the top-spec trim, which develops 509 bhp and 910 Nm of peak torque. The luxury e-SUV accelerates from 0-100 kmph in 4.7 seconds. Meanwhile, the entry-level Twin Motor trim develops 402 bhp and 770 Nm and can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 5.7 seconds. 

 

Volvo says the new EX90 is the brand’s safest car to date. It comes with features like a 360-degree camera, five radar sensors, and 16 ultrasonic sensors, all of which help the car see around it and react quickly. There’s a large 14.5-inch infotainment screen with built-in Google apps and services. The new EX90 comes with a powerful core system, which the company says makes it always connected. It can be improved over time via software updates enabled by AI and information collected by real-time data. 

 

The Volvo EX90 will likely make its way to India in the future. The model will be sold alongside the XC90, a popular offering for the Scandinavian automaker in the Indian market.
