Over the past week, the Swedish manufacturer has previewed the technologies and features that will be included in the EX90 electric SUV.
For the exterior, Volvo put efficiency at the top of the list when designing the EX90 by concentrating on reducing drag and cutting wind resistance.
The Volvo EX90 will have a drag coefficient of 0.29 which will help its driving range. The Volvo achieved a low CD with a rounded front end design and flat door handles, which is seen in the close-up teaser image.
The revealed teaser shows the LiDAR system integrated on the roof, sitting right above the windshield at the front of the roof. Volvo wants to place the system as high as possible so the LiDAR system can see as much as possible.
LiDAR will form the basis of its safety system by offering unattended autonomous driving capabilities. LiDAR can detect pedestrians up to 250 meters (820 feet) away.
The EX90 uses 16 ultrasonic sensors, eight cameras and five radars that monitor conditions outside the vehicle. Inside there are also sensors for the driver and passengers, one of which can detect sleeping children and pets left in the SUV and alert the driver if needed.
Last week, Volvo teased the EX90's interior, highlighting the dashboard and digital display, and today's teaser paints a fuller picture of the SUV. Sustainability will also be a feature of the model, with the SUV containing nearly 110 pounds of recycled plastic and bio-based materials. We'll take a look at it in full next week, and hopefully learn more about the powertrain setup.
