The Volvo EX90 SUV is the electric incarnation of ICE’s model, the XC90.

In addition to electrification, Volvo is increasingly focusing on connected, safer and autonomous driving technologies. Following the XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge, the EX90 is a key part of the all-electric fleet strategy. The Volvo EX90 is said to be longer and wider than the XC90, while sitting lower to the ground due to the heavier battery pack.

Speaking of design, the EX90 retains signature Volvo styling elements like Thor’s Hammer LED headlights and the XC40 Recharge’s blanked-out grille. It also features recessed door handles, 22-inch alloy wheels, and C-shaped split LED taillights. Volvo claims the EX90 contains 15% recycled steel, 25% recycled aluminum, 48kg of recycled plastic and bio-based materials.

In terms of technology, the Volvo EX90 is equipped with a lidar system that includes eight cameras and 16 ultrasonic sensors around the car. These enable the car to detect small objects as far away as 600 feet away, anytime, anywhere. Inside the cabin, the EX90 has a capacitive steering wheel and camera-based gaze sensors as part of a driver monitoring system that can detect if the driver is alert, distracted or drowsy.

The Volvo EX90 has a large 14.5-inch vertical touchscreen infotainment system powered by Google OS. The car comes standard with 5G connectivity, which supports over-the-air (OTA) updates. It has a panoramic sunroof and a Bowers & Wilkins sound system with speakers integrated into the seat’s headrests.

Power for the Volvo EX90 comes from a dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain that produces two different levels of power output. The base model produces 408 bhp and 770 Nm of torque, while higher versions make 517 bhp and 910 Nm of torque. Both variants are capable of running at a top speed of 180 km/h.
