Here it is, folks – the new Volvo V90 has finally been revealed ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Joining the brand-new XC90 SUV and S90 sedan, the arrival of this estate completes the brand’s range of 90 series models.
Unfortunately, several live and studio images of the model have been leaked before, somewhat spoiling the V90’s big reveal. But here, however, Volvo has released a full gallery of its latest product with a high-res look inside and out.
“We have a very strong position in the estate segment. In many people’s minds we are known as the definitive estate brand. While the Volvo brand today stands for more than estates, we are proud to carry forward this rich heritage with the V90,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars.
Some 60 years in the making now, the latest Volvo estate is the third model from the brand to ride on its new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), following the XC90 and S90. Full technical specs haven’t been disclosed yet, but the Swedish car maker has revealed a few initial details.
“The modern premium estate is all about the intriguing combination of a luxurious experience with the functional origins of the estates silhouette. The sophisticated ambience of our new Volvo Interiors is combined with a great cargo space, providing the right kind of functionality – whether through connectivity or cargo and storage solutions,” said Thomas Ingenlath, senior vice president for design at Volvo Cars.
As is the case with the S90, the new V90 will also feature Volvo’s Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive technology, large animal detection capabilities and a run-off road mitigation system. The latest-gen Volvo Sensus infotainment system is also featured, equipped with Apple CarPlay connectivity from the off.
Volvo has also confirmed that just like the S90, the V90 will feature the T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid powertrain that will deliver up to 410 hp and offer a pure electric driving range of around 50 km. Its new PowerPulse diesel technology will also be available.
That’s about all the information Volvo has revealed for now, so stay tuned to paultan.org for full technical details of the new V90 as soon as it is available.
