The twin electric motors power all four wheels helping the EV to generate 517 hp of maximum power and 910 Nm of peak torque. It can hit zero to 100 kmph in just 4.9 seconds.

Volvo terms the EX90 as the safest car the company has ever produced. The list of safety equipment includes high-resolution LiDAR that can see 250 meters ahead of the vehicle. There are 16 additional sensors all over the vehicle. The LiDAR sensor, which comes mounted on the front of the roof, also provides level 3 autonomous driving.

The EX90 also offers driver assistance to reduce chances of accidents and monitors driver behaviour behind the wheels. Any sign of distraction is first gently warned by the EV. If there is no response from the driver, Volvo can safely pull the car over to a stop and then call for help.

The design of the EX90 is not vastly different from other Volvo cars. The EV, measuring over 5 metres in length, comes with LED lights at the front with a 'T' shape, the rear has a 'C' design with the body and wheels sculpted to offer optimum aerodynamic performance.

The interior is plush yet sustainable. Volvo used recycled bottles to make the fabric inside the car, while the wood comes from responsibly managed forests in Sweden and Finland. There is a large 14.5-inch central display screen which comes with built-in Google and Apple services like Google Maps, Google Assistant, Google Play and wireless Apple CarPlay. 5G LTE connectivity is offered as standard to provide uninterrupted internet access. The Bowers & Wilkins sound system in the vehicle offers a truly immersive experience thanks to its 25 speakers with Dolby Atmos support.

You will not need keys for your Volvo EX90. All you need is your phone. The tool recognises drivers and stores their profiles, allowing them to set everything up and be ready for a personal experience in seconds from the moment the driver approaches the door.
