Although it hasn’t hit the market yet, the 2024 Volvo EX90 is already making a splash. This all-electric SUV is destined to be one of Volvo’s flagship vehicles. And frankly, it’s not going to be cheap. However, if you have the budget, this Volvo EV will offer some pretty serious safety tech.
What safety features will the 2024 Volvo EX90 have?
Volvo is a brand known for its safety, and the EX90 SUV brings some new safety features to the table. This electric SUV will feature cameras, radar and LiDAR to provide a safe driving experience. In a Volvo press release, the brand stated that its goal is to build cars that no longer crash.
The 2024 EX90 likely won’t be the vehicle to achieve that. But it is clear that Volvo is serious about its goal. Most of these security features will be next-generation. And it will be interesting to see how it works in the real world, as well as how Volvo translates it to other models.
What is the EX90 2024?
The Volvo EX90 is a full-size SUV that will sit above the XC90. And from what’s been shown so far, it looks pretty nifty. At the same time, Volvo has been able to retain its unique design language. The big news is that this vehicle will feature Volvo’s next-generation safety technology. And that’s sure to cause some excitement, especially since SUV drivers typically have safety tech as one of their top requirements.
According to car and driver, the base configuration will make 496 horsepower thanks to its electric powertrain. But it would not be surprising if more powerful variants were introduced at a higher cost. The 2024 EX90 will likely cost around $80,000, which is a luxury price for a luxury vehicle.
Does Volvo go electric?
By 2030, Volvo plans to be an all-electric brand. That means it will no longer sell cars with gasoline engines. For some, that may be a bit disappointing, but the future of automotive is electric. Like it or not. As an electric SUV, the EX90 marks the beginning of that transition. Although the brand has already been exploring the world of electrics.
Volvo isn’t the only automaker taking advantage of the performance and efficiency of electric vehicles. If you need any gauge of what Ford thinks about electric powertrains, its best-selling F-150 pickup can now be had as an EV. And many other companies are doing the same with their trucks.
The 2024 EX90 should go into production sometime in 2023. But, as always, there could be some delays depending on what the supply chain looks like. Since it’s such a flagship product, it wouldn’t be surprising if it’s a little hard to find one at every Volvo dealer. Of course, only time will tell what actually happens with this electric SUV. It’s hard not to see it as a hit, even with its higher price tag.
