The EX90 arrives as the all-electric alternative to the Volvo XC90 SUV.
The Volvo EX90 electric SUV has been finally unveiled. It is equipped with a 509bhp all-wheel-drive powertrain. Exhibited as a family SUV, the EX90 is expected to be available in select European markets. However, any update about its launch in the Indian market is yet to be revealed.
Powered by a 111kWh battery pack and with a WLTP driving range of up to 600km, the Volvo EX90 SUV will be positioned above C40 Recharge and XC40 Recharge. The model will be offered as an all-electric alternative to the XC90 SUV.
The Volvo EX90 includes an array of active safety systems (ADAS), which unceasingly monitor the environment around the SUV. It is fitted with eight cameras, a radar, and a laser-based surround-view sensing system called LiDAR. Thanks to these features, the EX90 can 'see' 250 metres ahead, even at night, alerting the driver about dangers, if there are any. The EX90's roof bump sensor enhances the SUV's driver-assistance features. The electric SUV will arrive with an upgraded driver attention monitoring system, which can stop the SUV and seek help if the driver sleeps or becomes ill while driving.
The Volvo EX90 SUV will go on sale in a single variant, with a dual-motor all-wheel-drive set-up and a power output of 402bhp. It will be introduced in a performance-oriented variant later with power and torque outputs of 509bhp and 910Nm, respectively. The SUV is expected to enter the Indian market, if at all, sometime in 2023. Once here, it will compete with the Mercedes-Benz EQC, Audi e-tron, and BMW iX.
