We previously informed you that Volvo plans to increase its car prices in India by 2% beginning in January due to rising input costs and fluctuating foreign exchange rates. The automaker has now finally revealed that this year's first price hike applies to just its petrol-powered cars. The pricing of its electric vehicles, however, remains unchanged. Volvo presently offers three petrol-based vehicles—the XC60, S90, and XC90, alongside two electric cars—the XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge in the country. After the price hike, the Volvo S90 now costs Rs 68.25 lakh, while the XC60 retails for Rs 68.90 lakh. The XC90, on the other hand, is priced at Rs 1.08 crore. Volvo says that, despite escalating input and foreign exchange expenditures, it has chosen to not increase the price of its electric vehicles to boost the market's adoption of EVs. It aims to become an all-electric company by 2030, with a focus on high-end, environmentally friendly e-mobility.

The Volvo EM90 is constructed on Geely's SEA (Sustainable Experience Architecture) electric vehicle platform, which also supports the Zeekr 009. The dimensions, body panels, and boxy form of the EV MPV are quite identical to those of the Zeekr, but the car offers a few distinctive features that are particular to the brand, like the T-shaped LED daytime running lights, enclosed grille with illuminated 'Volvo' symbol, and 'Thor's hammer' LED headlights.
