Volvo EX90 electric SUV

The company unveiled their flagship safety-equipped Volvo X90 model and has declared that this vehicle will have more safety technology than any of their previous vehicles. This new Volvo EX90 will use what the company calls an “invisible shield of safety,” using its latest sensing technology that not only monitors what’s on the road, but also the people inside. The EX90 will join the all-electric XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge SUVs that Volvo is planning for the future.

The new EX90 will introduce some new technological developments, styling changes.
It’s expected that the new EX90 will look a lot like the Concept Recharge SUV that was previewed in 2021. Although the design is different from most contemporary SUVs, with a long, low profile reminiscent of a Volvo from the 1980s, it also has distinctive characteristics typical of a Volvo from the 21st century, like the smooth grille and its body-side profile. While the Volvo XC40 and C40 are basically electrified versions of their gasoline-powered siblings, the EX90 is built on its own platform, which should allow it to have more styling flexibility.

In addition to the new V90 Cross Country, the new Volvo EX90 will also have some new sensing technologies to improve the detection of road obstacles. It will have radar and LiDAR sensors that can detect small objects hundreds of yards away, Volvo said. Sensors will gauge the concentration of the driver, presumably from the seat. According to The Verge, if you fall asleep, the EX90 will call for help or pull over on its own.

Volvo’s CEO previews the new technology
In the video above, new Volvo CEO Jim Rowan discusses Volvo’s innovative technology, most notably its revolutionary approach to vehicle safety. He doesn’t go into specifics about how the system operates, but the company will have more information available soon.

Volvo made it a point in the Concept Recharge to use sustainable materials, and many of these materials will also be used in the new EX90. One of the ways the company saves resources and makes itself more sustainable is with materials like flax and natural rubber for storage areas and for upholstery, for example, and sustainable, faux leather.

Age is starting to show on the Volvo XC90
The only changes coming to the XC90 are an inclusion of a mild hybrid as standard. Outside of this addition, the XC90 carries over unchanged for the next year. So it does make some sense that Volvo might stop selling the XC90 in favor of the EX90, since its last major update was in 2017, and it got a facelift in 2021.

The XC90 starts at $56,000 in Core trim and seats seven in luxury. The Plus trim adds some niceties like walnut trim and leather for $3,900 more. With the Ultimate trim, you get a heads-up display, a crystal shift knob, and ventilated leather seats for $13,200.
