Volvo EX90 Interior Tech Previewed Before Its Official Reveal On November 9
The interior technology of Volvo’s next flagship electric vehicle, the EX90, which is based on the Volvo XC90 SUV, has now been previewed by the automaker ahead of a formal unveiling on November 9.
The electric SUV, which is scheduled to be on sale next year, will serve as Volvo’s new flagship and be the company’s first vehicle to ride on its new SPA2 platform. It will be launched alongside the highly updated version of the existing XC90 and feature safety features never previously seen on a production car.
The inside of the Volvo EX90 is geared toward providing the driver with accurate information and data. Volvo has eliminated physical buttons in favour of employing a huge portrait-style touchscreen with operating software created by Google to operate most tasks, including media, navigation, and phone data.
Additionally, a small screen located behind the steering wheel shows driver-focused data like as speed, range, and directions. Volvo wants to reduce confusion, distraction, and information overload by giving the driver the “correct information at the right moment” through the use of the screen.
The new Volvo EX90 will provide Volvo with a long-awaited entry into the increasingly significant full-sized electric SUV sector, where most luxury automakers have launched their debut EVs in recent years when it is released as the production-spec version of the Concept Recharge concept exhibited in 2021.
The C40 Recharge and XC40 Recharge are Volvo’s current EV models that sit a segment lower and share the same CMA chassis as the standard XC40 with ICE power.
Not all of the concept’s features, including the four free-standing seats, will be included in the EX90. The skateboard-inspired construction will present new levels of interior flexibility and room, though.
The Concept Recharge also made a strong case for how Volvo’s next flagship EV keeps the XC90’s essential qualities while introducing a whole different approach to outward and interior design. With the ‘less is more philosophy demonstrated by the concept, it will continue to put a strong emphasis on space and practicality.
According to Volvo, the new Volvo EX90 will be supported by cutting-edge safety technologies. The new technology will come standard on future Volvo vehicles as well. Radar and cameras are used as a “protective barrier” both inside and outside the vehicle to help the driver when they are either sleepy, distracted, or make a manoeuvre “only a millisecond too late.”
It has a lidar system that scans the area surrounding the vehicle and intervenes if the driver is inattentive, slowing down and adjusting the steering angle to avoid dangers. Volvo asserts that the new features can lower the risk of fatalities or major injuries by up to 20% when combined with cameras that monitor the driver’s alertness and well-being.
In favour of electric vehicles (EVs), Volvo recently opted to phase out its current plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). The Swedish automaker plans to introduce one EV per year in India; the XC40 Recharge will be on sale this year, and the C40 Recharge will go on sale the next year.
