Meet the Volvo EX90: The All-Electric Seven-Passenger SUV
Volvo’s highly anticipated EX90 has been revealed, and with a lot of room and advanced safety technology, Volvo has set this EV apart from the pack. This top-of-the-line vehicle is a seven-passenger, three-row, all-wheel-drive electric SUV and is equipped with all the safety features and technology you expect from a Volvo. The EX90 will compete directly with the Tesla Model X and Rivian R1S, the only other three-row electric SUVs on the market.
The interior has a minimal design, focusing primarily on the 15-inch infotainment touchscreen. Volvo’s new HMI (Human Machine Interface) will deliver real-time, photorealistic 3D graphics with the driver’s digital instruments and head-up display. The rest of the interior feels open and modern. No longer using leather, the seats, door panels, etc., will use sustainable and eco-friendliness. Still, the materials used look high-end, especially the available wool fabric blended with plastic recovered from recycled bottles.
Volvo has always been known for its technology and safety features; this vehicle is no exception. The EX90 is designed to tell if the driver is distracted, falling asleep, or unwell and will alert the driver if they left an animal or small child in the car. It also recognizes as humans, we make mistakes. So if something happens to distract you, the zero collision vision is here to help keep you safe.
The exterior of the new EX90 has several unique design elements to help improve aerodynamics and airflow, including the door handles sitting flush against the exterior. So as you walk up to the car, the EX90 knows you are there and starts with an approach sequins of illumination, and the door handles pivot to pop out. And don’t worry; it has undergone a lot of winter testing to ensure it can handle any cold and icy weather and still pop out. One of the coolest features is the headlights. The daytime running lights open up almost like an eye becoming headlights. These headlights will be the first production headlights ever to incorporate some pop-up or hidden headlight under a lens on any car.
With a combined 496 horsepower and 671 pound-feet of torque and draw energy from a 111-kWh battery, the biggest battery pack that Volvo has ever built. Volvo says the powertrain works in concert with the EX90’s new chassis design to provide a smoother driving experience. The range will extend to 300 miles, with a fast charging time of 30 minutes to recover from 10 to 80 percent battery power.
With an estimated starting MSRP of $80,000, this seven-passenger EX90 will go into production in the U.S. soon at the Volvo plant in Ridgeville, South Carolina, with deliveries starting in early 2024.
