Volvo has revealed the latest in their top-of-the-line 90 series models, the eagerly-awaited V90 estate.
The new estate will be the latest in a very long line of estate cars for the Swedish auto maker, a line-up that stretches back almost 60 years. The V90 will be a good step forward in terms of aesthetics, materials and finish.
The V90 is the 3rd car unveiled in Volvo’s 90 series, all of which are built on the company’s specially-designed and fully modular Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which has opened up a range of new opportunities in terms of how Volvo’s can be designed, built and equipped.
The new Volvo V90 delivers cutting-edge Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive technology, the most advanced standard safety package on the market, with large animal detection and run-off road mitigation, and class-leading connectivity including smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay.
Volvo has also paid a great deal of attention to the driving dynamins in the new estate. The new car will offer a more engaging drive.
The V90 will be made available with the fantastic T8 Twin Engine. In this guise, it produces around 305 kW, and will be capable of delivering up to 50 km in pure electric form.
“We have a very strong position in the estate segment,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars. “In many people’s minds we are known as the definitive estate brand. While the Volvo brand today stands for more than estates, we are proud to carry forward this rich heritage with the V90.”
