The Volvo EX90 SUV is based on dedicated EV SPA2 architecture and is the third electric vehicle from Volvo after the XC40 recharge and C40 recharge.
Volvo EX90: Exterior
Talking about the exterior design, Volvo says that it took inspiration from a yacht’s design and incorporated elements to achieve the smoothest flowing surface with a drag coefficient of 0.29. At the front, it gets Thor-hammer headlamps with vertical LED Daytime Running Lamps with a closed-off grille.
Moving on to the rear, it gets a ‘C’ design with the body, and it also gets 22-inch five-spoke aerodynamically designed alloy wheels. In terms of dimensions, at 5,037mm, the EX90 is slightly longer than the XC90.
Volvo EX90: Interior
Moving on to the interior, Volvo claims that they have used recycled bottles to make the fabric inside the car and the wood trims come from responsibly managed forests in Sweden and Finland.
The car features a huge 14.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with built-in Google and Apple services like Google Maps, Google Assistant, Google Play and wireless Apple CarPlay. 5G LTE connectivity is also offered as a standard. The infotainment is paired with Bowers & Wilkins sound system with 25 speakers.
Volvo EX90: Safety
Volvo claims that the EX90 is the safest car they have ever built. The EX90 features a high-resolution LiDAR mounted on the front of the roof that can see 250 meters ahead of the vehicle and there are 16 additional sensors all over the vehicle.
The EX90 also features level 3 autonomous driving and driver assistance. Volvo claims that the vehicle monitors driver behaviour and in any sign of distraction is first gently warned by the system and in case of no response, the EV can pull over automatically.

Volvo EX90: Motor, Battery and Range
The Volvo EX90 will be initially offered with a twin-motor setup and two levels of output. The EV produces 408 bhp of power and 770Nm of torque, with Performance models offering 517 bhp and a massive 910Nm of torque. The power is transferred to all four wheels and the speed is limited to 180 kmph.
Talking about the battery, the Volvo EX90 will be powered by a 111 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and Volvo claims that the EV can go up to 600 Km on one full charge.
The battery supports DC fast charging up to 250 kW. This allows the EV to add 180 km of range by charging the battery for just 10 minutes. Volvo claims that it takes only half an hour to charge the battery from 0 to 80 per cent.
The battery pack will also be compatible with Volvo’s bi-directional charging system, which enables the vehicle to power the house when needed. It can also work as a portable power bank, charging or powering devices while on the go.
Volvo EX90: When will it come to India?
Volvo recently launched the XC40 Recharge to the Indian market and the company also announced that it will bring in the C40 Recharge next year. Aiming to launch one EV every year, we expect Volvo to launch the EX90 sometime in 2024.
