The EX90 is officially here and is now Volvo's flagship electric SUV!


The new Volvo EX90 is more than just a car. Revealed to the world in downtown Stockholm today, it’s not just the most advanced Volvo car we ever created – it’s your entry ticket to a wider ecosystem of services and features that can make your life easier, more enjoyable and allow you to reap the full benefits of going all-electric.

It signifies our new approach to ownership, whether you choose to get an Volvo EX90 online or by going to a retailer. You decide how you access it, whether that is through outright ownership, by subscribing to it or by leasing it. Whatever works for you.

Life with your Volvo EX90 is further supported by the Volvo Cars smartphone app, our mobile platform that brings together a broad variety of services and features related to your all-electric family SUV in one place.

Whether you’re looking for a public charging station, want to pay for charging, manage smart charging at home, schedule a new over-the-air software update or simply want to enter your car through keyless entry, the Volvo Cars app makes it possible and easier than ever before.

Inside our new fully electric flagship SUV, two bright screens give you easy access to all features, providing clear information tailored to the situation. First-class infotainment and connectivity create a seamless connection between your car and your home. The Volvo EX90 comes with a wide suite of Google apps and services built-in, including the ability to control your car remotely from the comfort of your home.

“The Volvo EX90 is our vision of a large family SUV in the electric age,” said Jim Rowan, our chief executive. “Born electric and software-defined, it demonstrates what future Volvo cars will stand for in terms of safety, tech, sustainability, design and creating a more personal experience for every customer.”

Charging was never easier

As a car that signifies the start of a new era for Volvo Cars, the fully electric Volvo EX90 is your perfect companion for a more sustainable family lifestyle. Charging your car was never easier due to a variety of smart technologies and services.

With the public charging experience fully integrated in the Volvo Cars app, you can choose from hundreds of thousands of public charging points around the globe, pay for your charging and keep track of charging progress in one, easy-to-use interface. Meanwhile, you can check the real-time availability of charging points via Google Maps in the centre screen of the infotainment system.

The Volvo EX90 will support Plug and Charge. Once available, this means you can simply plug your car into a public charger that supports this technology and it will start charging automatically, with payment taken care of as well.

We’re also constantly extending the scope of our charging offer by adding more fast-charging networks to our ecosystem of connected public charging, allowing drivers of electric Volvo cars to charge conveniently at attractive rates.

Clean power, also for your home

The Volvo Cars app is also the starting point for our home energy management offer, which allows you to reduce your CO2 emissions, save money and lower your impact on the environment.

Initially available in selected markets in the future, our home energy management offer includes a bi-directional wall box and a energy management system that helps you monitor and optimise your household’s energy consumption. Our experts will oversee the entire installation, making sure everything is ready for when your car arrives.

Through the smart charging feature coming to the Volvo Cars app, you can charge your Volvo EX90 at the best available time from a sustainability and family economy perspective. Now imagine you could use that energy later, perhaps during peak times when prices are higher and the energy mix less sustainable.

This is because the Volvo EX90 is our first car with all the necessary hardware to enable bi-directional charging. It’s a technology whereby you can use your car battery as an extra energy supply, for example to power your home, other electric devices or another electric Volvo car. We plan to make bi-directional charging available in the future, starting with selected markets.

We’re also looking into the possibility to allow customers to sell energy back to the grid, plugged in collectively to form a virtual power plant. This could contribute to a more efficient and stable system with a lower CO₂ footprint, while creating revenues for you and us alike.

Complexity made simple

Inside the Volvo EX90, a 14.5-inch centre screen is your gateway to one of the most advanced infotainment systems on offer, with Google built-in and 5G connectivity as standard where available. Where 5G is not available, we partner with leading service providers to offer the best possible service around the globe. Finding your destination, streaming your favourite music, installing your favourite apps and much more are a breeze thanks to the intuitive set-up.

Additionally, the overall user experience inside the Volvo EX90 is designed on the principle of complexity made simple, avoiding information overload. The displays in the centre stack and in front of the driver provide information in a smart way that can be customised the way you prefer. The Volvo EX90 will also be compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto™.

Whether you’re in manual, assisted or – in future – autonomous driving mode, the driving mode will always be clearly displayed and recognizable. That way we avoid so-called mode confusion and contribute to a focused, safe and enjoyable drive.

The Volvo EX90 will be the first Volvo car to feature Dolby Atmos, which will be delivered by a reference-quality Bowers & Wilkins audio system featuring 25 speakers for immersive sound throughout the cabin.

Moreover, with the Volvo EX90 we’re introducing phone key technology, meaning you can leave your key fob at home and easily unlock your car with your mobile phone. Built on the UWB industry standard, our technology will be compatible with a wide range of phone brands and models and allows you to share the key with family and friends when you need to.

Finally, with remote actions you can seamlessly move between the car and your home. Just ask Google to lock, warm up or cool down your Volvo EX90 from the comfort of your home. You can also instantly find out your battery charge level.

Living with the Volvo EX90, then, means an enhanced life. A car that takes care of and helps protect you and your loved ones, contributes to a more sustainable lifestyle and can make your day-to-day life more enjoyable and easier. So you can live life to the fullest.

A true seven-seater, all-electric SUV that further raises our standards in safety and a more sustainable lifestyle: the new Volvo EX90 represents the start of a new era for our company in which we set a decisive course for a fully electric future.

Starting with the Volvo EX90, we’ll reveal one new fully electric car each year. By 2030, we aim to sell only fully electric cars, one of the most ambitious electrification blueprints in the automotive industry and crucial to our ambition to be a climate-neutral company by 2040.

We revealed our new fully electric flagship SUV to the world in downtown Stockholm today, reflecting our Swedish roots. At the same time, reflecting our global footprint as a company, the Volvo EX90 will be built in the USA starting next year and later also in China. By then, we aim for those two production facilities to be climate-neutral.

A new instant classic in Scandinavian design, the Volvo EX90 defines the principle of form following function. It’s a versatile, stylish family car with modern proportions, combined with cutting-edge technology in core computing, connectivity and electrification to optimise safety, efficiency and aesthetics.

“The Volvo EX90 is a statement for where we are, and where we are going,” said Jim Rowan, our chief executive. “It’s fully electric with a range of up to 600 kilometres on a single charge, designed to further raise our safety standards, the first Volvo car to be truly defined by its software and part of a wider ecosystem, connecting to your home and your other devices. The Volvo EX90 is the start of something new for Volvo Cars in many ways.”

Keeping you and your loved ones safe

The standard safety in the Volvo EX90 is also higher than any Volvo car before it. It’s designed to understand you and its surroundings to help keep you, your loved ones and others in traffic safe. It can also get smarter and safer over time, as it learns from new data and receives updates.

The Volvo EX90 has an invisible shield of safety enabled by our latest sensing technology, inside and outside. State-of-the art sensors like cameras, radars and lidar are connected to the car’s high-performance core computers, where NVIDIA DRIVE runs Volvo Cars’ in-house software to create a real-time, 360-degree view of the world.

Our sensors don’t get tired or distracted. They are designed to respond and react when you’re just a fraction too late. Our lidar can sense the road in front of you, whether it’s day or night, also at highway speeds. It can see small objects hundreds of metres ahead, creating more time to inform, act and avoid. The sensors also contribute to improve the reliability and overall performance of our assisted driving function Pilot Assist, with a new steering support while changing lanes.

Inside, our invisible shield of safety also looks out for you. Special sensors and cameras, powered by our own in-house developed algorithms, gauge eye gaze concentration. The technology allows the Volvo EX90 to understand when you’re distracted, drowsy or otherwise inattentive, beyond what has been possible in a Volvo car to date.

It’ll alert you, first softly nudging, then more insistent. And if the unthinkable happens, and you fall asleep or are taken ill while driving, the Volvo EX90 is designed to safely stop and call for help.

Finally, thanks to the state-of-the-art sensor set including lidar, the Volvo EX90 is the first Volvo that’s hardware-ready for unsupervised driving in the future.

Technology with a purpose

A core system – powered by NVIDIA DRIVE AI platforms Xavier and Orin, Snapdragon® Cockpit Platforms from Qualcomm Technologies and in-house developed software by Volvo engineers – runs most of the core functions inside the car, from safety and infotainment to battery management. The end result is a more responsive and enjoyable experience inside the car.

In other words, your Volvo EX90 won’t be just a new car, it will be a highly advanced computer on wheels. Even better, just like your smartphone or your laptop, the Volvo EX90 is designed to get better over time, thanks to regular over-the-air software updates.

By combining the state-of-the-art computing power from Snapdragon’ Cockpit Platforms with the visualisation capabilities of Unreal Engine, the 3D tool developed by Epic Games and used to power some of the world’s largest games, to give you lightning-fast computing power and high-quality graphics on the in-car screens and head-up display.

A 14.5-inch centre screen is your gateway to one of the best infotainment systems on offer, with Google built in. Google apps and services including hands-free help from Google Assistant, Google Maps navigation and more of your favourite apps on Google Play all come built in. The displays in the Volvo EX90 help you keep your eyes on the road by offering you the right information at the right time. The Volvo EX90 will also be compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay.

Thanks to the standard 5G connection where available, it’s never been easier to install the apps you need on your home screen and enjoy highly intuitive navigation. You can also stream your favourite music through the new, reference-quality Bowers & Wilkins audio system featuring Dolby Atmos as a Volvo-first, plus head rest-integrated speakers for immersive sound.

The Volvo EX90 will also come with phone key technology as standard. Your smartphone serves as your car key and automatically unlocks the car and starts a personal welcoming sequence as you approach. Your personal profile will also be loaded automatically as you enter the car.

All of this technology comes together in one of the most pleasant and elegant car interiors on the market, full of natural and responsibly-sourced materials. That interior composition also reflects our sustainability ambitions, such as being a fully circular and climate-neutral company by 2040.

Supporting a more sustainable lifestyle

With its brand new, in-house developed fully electric technology base, the Volvo EX90 is your perfect companion for a more sustainable family lifestyle. Delivering up to 600 kilometres of tailpipe emission-free driving range on a single charge, according to the WLTP test cycle, it charges from 10 to 80 per cent in under 30 minutes.

The initially available twin-motor all-wheel drive version is powered by a 111kWh battery and two permanent magnet electric motors together delivering in its performance version 380 kW (517 hp) and 910 Nm of torque. In combination with the brand new chassis, this creates a great and smooth driving experience.

The Volvo EX90 contains approximately 15 per cent of recycled steel, 25 per cent of recycled aluminium as well as 48 kilogrammes of recycled plastics and bio-based materials, which corresponds to around 15 per cent of the total plastic used in the car – the highest level of any Volvo car to date.

Finally, the Volvo EX90 is our first car with all the necessary hardware to enable bi-directional charging. It’s a technology whereby you can use your car battery as an extra energy supply, for example to power your home, other electric devices or another electric Volvo car. We plan to make bi-directional charging available in the future, starting with selected markets.
