Volvo has really taken a big step forward with the new Volvo XC90. Not only this new model shows Volvo’s new exteror and interior design, it also features new powertrain and safety technologies. Volvo XC90 is also the first model built on the new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) technology.
Volvo Cars unveiled the all-new XC90. The new XC90 will be the first car to carry the company’s new more prominent iron mark, which has the iconic arrow elegantly aligned with the diagonal slash across the grille. Together with the T-shaped “Thor’s Hammer” DRL lights, the iron mark introduces an entirely new, distinctive and confident face for Volvo’s forthcoming generation of cars.
For the all-new XC90, the top of the range Twin Engine will carry the badge T8 and be a plug-in electric car, hybrid car and high-performance car rolled into one. Normal driving is conducted in the default hybrid mode. This utilises a two-litre, four-cylinder supercharged and turbocharged Drive-E petrol engine that powers the front wheels and an 80 hp (60 kW) electric motor that drives the rear wheels.
Volvo Cars has released the first interior images of the all-new Volvo XC90. The new XC90’s interior combines materials such as soft leather and wood with handcrafted details including a gear lever made of crystal glass from Orrefors, the famous Swedish glass maker, and diamond-cut controls for the start/stop button and volume control.
