The eagerly awaited Volvo V90 was revealed today in Stockholm, Sweden.
The stylish and versatile V90 is the latest in the premium car maker’s top-of-the-line 90 series, sitting alongside the award-winning XC90 SUV and the recently launched S90 premium saloon.
Building on Volvo Cars’ indisputable heritage in the estate segment, which began more than 60 years ago with the Volvo Duett, the new V90 takes the premium estate a clear step forward in terms of aesthetics, materials and finish, while living up to the ultimately practical nature of any true estate.
The new V90 is the third car unveiled in Volvo’s top-of-the-line 90 series, all of which are built on the company’s specially designed and fully modular Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which has opened up a range of new opportunities in terms of how Volvos can be designed, built and equipped.
Leading the powertrain options is the T8 ‘Twin Engine’ plug-in hybrid, which combines an 87 hp electric motor and a 2.0-liter diesel motor to give a combined output of 401 hp and 472lb ft of torque.
Volvo claims that the V90 T8 Twin Engine will deliver an all-electric range of around 31 miles and fuel economy of 134.5mpg, while emitting just 47g/km of CO2 emissions.
The new V90 delivers cutting-edge Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive technology, the most advanced standard safety package on the market, including Large Animal Detection and Run-off Road Mitigation, and class-leading connectivity, including smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay.
Volvo Cars has also worked tirelessly on driving dynamics in the new model, to deliver a totally new and refined driving experience characterized by a sense of engaging control and predictability.
