With the release of the new EX90 premium SUV, Volvo’s shift to an all-electric portfolio advances. When it becomes available in 2024 as a model, it will be placed above the XC90 which is fueled by gasoline. It appears sleeker than the XC90 without sacrificing iconic Volvo style cues like the “Thor’s Hammer” LED headlight signature & vertically oriented taillights. Its appearance incorporates components from the Project Recharge show vehicle from 2021. According to the less potent and shorter C40 Recharge as well as XC40 Rechargeable SUVs, this system should have a sufficient punch for swift acceleration.
A 496-hp electric engine will come standard. The EX90 can reportedly go 300 miles on a single charge because of a large battery pack, and it can be recharged quickly via a DC connection. According to Volvo, the EX90 will also have the company’s newest driving-assistance technology. This technology includes a new driver monitoring system that may intervene to support the driver if it notices any signs of stress or distraction.

What has changed for 2024?
When it comes up for sale in early 2024, Volvo’s flagship model will be the EX90, a completely new moniker for the company. Although pricing, as well as trim levels, have not yet been made public, we anticipate the electric EX90 to cost more than the SUV’s gasoline-powered counterpart, the XC90. We anticipate the EX90 to follow the new pattern, which calls for a base Core model, a mid-range Plus variation, and a fully equipped Ultimate model. Volvo has also just reorganized its trim level offers.
EV Performance, Power, and Motor
All EX90s will have dual-motor all-wheel drive, although the Twin Motor Performance model has 496 hp while the Twin Motor entry-level model has 402 horsepower. The Polestar 3 just made its debut and is available with an even greater 517-hp variant of the propulsion design, both of which are new. Despite the EX90 possibly tipping the scales at a heavier curb weight than the gasoline-powered counterpart, the XC90, acceleration should be swift. Volvo estimates that the Twin Motor version should reach 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and the Twin Motor Performance in 4.7 seconds.
Battery Life, Charging, and Range
The 111-kWh battery pack inside should provide 300 miles of range, according to Volvo. The battery may be charged from 10% to 80% in just 30 min using the normal DC rapid charging capabilities. The EX90’s EV design also supports bi-directional charging, so you can connect it to your home to run appliances in case of a power outage or utilize it to recharge other Volvo EVs if necessary.
Fuel efficiency and actual MPGe
Although the EPA has not yet provided fuel efficiency figures for the EX90. We anticipate that it will be comparable with other high-end electric SUVs like the Rivian R1S and the BMW iX. When we have a chance, we’ll test the EX90’s fuel efficiency on our 75 mph highway test route & update this article with the findings.
Cargo, Comfort, and the Interior
Most of the EX90’s settings are located on a large touchscreen infotainment thanks to its simple interior design. Although the design is simple and historically Scandinavian, some drivers may find it annoying since they prefer actual buttons and switch on their dashboards. There is space for seven passengers owing to a conventional third row of seats, and the cabin is made to seem open and light by a big glass roof. In the goal of environmental responsibility, leather seating has been eliminated from the choices list. But the materials that have been utilized in their place appear upscale, particularly the wool fabric that is available and is combined with plastic reclaimed from recycled bottles.
Connectivity and Information
The newest Google-based infotainment interface is used by the EX90’s 14.5-inch infotainment display, which is huge and portrait-oriented. It has Google Maps-powered in-dash navigation and access to third-party apps via the Google Play store. Both 5G cellular data and wireless Apple Carplay are commonplace. A Bowers & Wilkins sound system with Dolby Atmos technologies and 25 speakers, including ones built into the EX90’s headrests, is offered as an option.
