What We Know So far

Posted on


Volvo’s transition to the electric lineup will continue with a new flagship SUV called the EX90. The new model will be positioned above the petrol-powered XC90 when it goes on sale as a 2024 model. Styling will follow the Concept Recharge show car from 2021, meaning it will look slimmer than the XC90 without abandoning classic Volvo styling elements like Thor’s Hammer LED headlights. and the taillights are oriented vertically. We don’t have details on the EX90’s powertrain, battery capacity or driving range yet, but we expect it to offer similar specs to the smaller C40 Recharge and XC40 Recharge SUVs. Volvo has said that the EX90 will also showcase next-generation driver assistance technology, including something called a “driver understanding system” that is said to be able to take action to assist the driver if it detects difficulties or distractions.

What’s New for 2024?

We’ll see the EX90—a completely new nameplate for the Volvo brand—launch on November 9 with sales expected to begin in the second half of 2023 as the 2024 model year.

Price and Where to Buy


$70,000 (approximate)


$80,000 (approximate)


$90,000 (approximate)

Pricing and trim levels haven’t been officially announced yet, but we expect the electric EX90 to carry a premium over the petrol-powered XC90 SUV. Volvo has also recently limited its trim level offerings and we think the EX90 will adhere to the new layout, which will see the base Core trim, mid-range Plus variant, and Ultimate model loaded.

Safety Features and Driver Assistance

Volvo promises that a new driver assistance feature will debut on the EX90, but we’re not sure exactly what will happen. We expect to see basics like automatic emergency braking but we could also look at a hands-free highway driving system as well. For more information on the EX90 crash test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) website. Key security features likely include:

  • Standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection
  • Standard lane departure warning with lane guard assistance
  • Adaptive cruise control available with hands-free driving mode
