Volvo unveiled its new flagship vehicle to the world, the 2024 Volvo EX90, a seven-passenger electric SUV. It is meant to be the top-of-the-range model showcasing Volvo’s latest technology in the modern era. It features standard Lidar technology and Level 3 autonomous capability and uses sustainable materials in its luxury interior.
The Volvo EX90 exterior design is aesthetically pleasing thanks to a smooth, crisp design with T-shaped front LED lights programmed to blink like eyelids. In addition, a sensor mounted above the windshield serves as the eye in the sky for the vehicle’s pedestrian detection and Lidar system. The rear of the SUV shows a tapered roof line with vertical LEDs flowing down the rear windshield, complementing the Volvo EX90’s C-shaped LEDs. Besides looking good, the EX90’s design cuts through the air with a drag coefficient of 0.29.
As mentioned, the interior of the Volvo EX90 uses sustainable materials to create its simple but elegant decor. Volvo stated that the SUV’s interior uses 106 pounds of recycled plastic bottles, wool bend seat fabrics, and sustainably sourced wood throughout the cabin. You’d never guess upon looking at the interior as the presentation shows expertly stitched seats. The dashboard is Tesla-like in that there is only one center-mounted 14.5-inch vertical touchscreen to navigate the vehicle’s controls, and we mean all controls. So, for example, there’s an icon on the screen to open the glove box.
Dual motors power the 2024 Volvo EX90 all-wheel drive system via a 107 kWh battery pack. The standard EX90 offers 408 hp and 568 lb.-ft of torque. Next in the lineup is the Performance variant with 510 hp and 671 lb.-ft of torque. Volvo states the range of the EX90 is between 300 and 373 miles depending on trim level. Pricing has yet to be announced, but buyers can pre-order a Volvo EX90 in the U.S. before it becomes available in 2024.
