The Volvo V90 2023 is in the starting blocks: fully electric and with a new name – but also again as Cross Country and R Design? We have collected the first information about the new edition of the station wagon.
The Volvo V90 and the S90 sedan offshoot will come – probably at the end of 2023 – with a “real” name and will also be completely renewed technically and in design. Our illustration hints at the station wagon’s new lines.
The closed, but still black “radiator grille” is wider and connects the headlight units. Thanks to Thor’s hammer light signature, these also indicate in the dark that a Volvo is driving up here. The S90/V90 successors are based on the new SPA2 platform (Scalable Product Architecture), so they only run on electricity.
The top versions are driven by one motor per axle and thus have an all-wheel drive. This will likely continue the popular crossover version “Cross Country”. On the other hand, the sporty “R Design” equipment, which had to give way to a new equipment grading in the current model, has no future. However, fans of dynamic cars will not go away empty-handed, but will soon be looking more closely at the sister brand Polestar.
But not only the drive technology of the 2023 Volvo V90 is more modern. The Google-based operating and infotainment system, which we already know from various Volvos and Polestar models, will also be further expanded. In addition, a new generation of lidar sensors should improve automated driving. The prices for the station wagon could start at the level of the current “Recharge” plug-in hybrid, i.e. at around 65,000 euros.
