Volvo has finally shown off the 2023 Volvo EX90, a luxury family SUV with seven seats, a range of 400 miles, a starting price of less than $128,000, and a lot of futuristic features like long-range lidar, bidirectional charging, and sensors that can tell if a driver is distracted or drunk.
Volvo plans to sell entirely electric vehicles (EVs) starting in 2030, and the 2023 release of the Volvo EX90 will mark the beginning of this transformation. Volvo's increased dependence on technology to improve its reputation for safety is another goal of the electrified SUV. And a group of well-known firms, including Nvidia, Luminar, and Qualcomm, are providing the technology needed to turn today's automobiles into mobile supercomputers.
The Concept Recharge, shown last year as a "manifesto" for Volvo's future, is the forerunner to the Volvo EX90. With no internal combustion engine to take up space, the vehicle's carriage-style doors opened up to a spacious cabin for the driver and passengers. Despite eliminating the carriage doors, Volvo is standing by its claim that the Volvo EX90 opens a new epoch for the brand.
The "90" in EX90 refers to Volvo's other successful full-size SUV, the XC90, which debuted in 2015 and was immediately named Motor Trend's SUV of the Year.
