The EX90 is not only significant as Volvo’s latest electric SUV, but also because it will be produced at the company’s South Carolina manufacturing plant beginning later in the year.
Pre-orders for the EX90 are now open in the United States, and those interested can configure their vehicles for delivery in early 2024. Priority will be given to those who place their orders in the fall.
The EX90 will be available in two different versions, both powered by a 107 kWh battery pack that supports 250 kW DC charging. The battery can be charged from 10-80% in just 30 minutes. The entry-level model features two electric motors that provide a total of 408 hp and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque, while the Performance model boasts 510 hp and 671 lb-ft (910 Nm) of torque, allowing it to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in an impressive 4.9 seconds.
In line with all Volvo models, the EX90 has a strong focus on safety. It is equipped with one long-range lidar, five radars, eight cameras, and 16 ultrasonic sensors. The lidar, provided by Luminar, is able to detect small objects up to two football fields away in both daylight and at night, and at highway speeds.
The EX90 also features a comprehensive array of technologies in the cabin, including a 14.5-inch central infotainment system with built-in Google technology, providing seamless integration with Google Assistant, Google Maps navigation, and a range of apps from Google Play. The system also supports wireless Apple CarPlay.
