The all-new fully electric luxury MPV, the Volvo EM90, is not just designed to be a comfortable living room on the move, and a car that provides you with room for life with your loved ones. It is also a car that broadens the appeal of Volvo Cars and meets even more customer needs.
The multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) segment has gained considerable popularity in recent years, especially in many parts of Asia. This is one of the main reasons why the EM90 is coming first to China, where it is now available to pre-order.
Volvo says that “while the MPV segment is a new one for us, the concept of versatility is far from unfamiliar territory. In fact, the Volvo Duett from 1953 was developed specifically as a versatile and spacious car, many years before the MPV segment was even formally created.”
The EM90 is based on sibling brand Zeekr’s 009 MPV, but has its own interior and exterior design that brings it into line with Volvo’s line-up.
Inside, the EM90 is designed to be your living room on the move. It provides you with ultimate comfort for you to make the most of the time you spend in the car, thanks to Scandinavian design details that offer a truly premium experience.
However, the first acquaintance with the EM90 comes through the exterior design. At the front, the instantly recognisable and iconic Thor’s Hammer headlights provide a grand appearance – the proud and confident face of a Volvo car.
What really stands out, however, is how the headlights of the EM90 greet you with an illuminating front, including an illuminated logo that appears for the first time on a Volvo car. Inspired by skyscrapers and cutting-edge immersive art, the front exudes high-tech, crafted precision.
At the rear, a lit-up wordmark and stylish rear light design make the EM90 stand out from modern premium design.
As a fully electric car, the EM90 provides a range of up to 738 km (459 miles) under the CLTC testing cycle. The car comes with a 116 kWh battery and the charging time from 10 to 80 per cent is expected to be under 30 minutes. Powered by an e-motor with 200kW power output, the EM90 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.3 seconds.
Like the EX90 flagship SUV, the EM90 is equipped with all the hardware necessary to enable bi-directional charging. This feature allows you to use the battery of the EM90 as a power bank to charge other electric cars and appliances.
As with all new Volvo cars, the EM90 will get better over time, thanks to over-the-air software updates. A digital key and remote functions via the Volvo Cars app provide for easy access and control of the car.
“It’s an age-old cliché, but there really is no place like home,” said Jim Rowan, chief executive of Volvo Cars. “A place to connect with your loved ones, to truly be yourself. It’s this feeling of home that inspired our new EM90, a car with room for life.”
“The Volvo EM90 is a supremely comfortable electric car with a smart cabin, fast charging, a competitive driving range, Volvo’s unique design language and a high level of premium in every detail,” said Jim Rowan. “But far more important is what it does for you. It gives you room to connect. Room to create. Room to relax. Room for you and for those around you.”
The Volvo EM90 is coming first to China and is now available for pre-orders for customers in China.
