Volvo's New V90: 60 Years of Heritage

646 × 396
Only a few car companies can claim the same pedigree as Volvo Cars when it comes to the design and manufacture of family estates. In the United States, we call estate cars station wagons, but Volvo wagons are not your typical family grocery getters! That is why Volvo’s new V90 is so widely-anticipated.
 


 

The V90 is a car that benefits from over 60 years of estate building heritage that started with the Volvo Duett which was launched in 1953. The Duett was the first car to meet the combined needs of drivers’ active leisure time and practical professional lives.

 

The new V90 is the third car unveiled in Volvo’s top-of-the-line 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 Volvos can be designed, built and equipped.

Volvo Cars has also worked tirelessly on driving dynamics in the new model delivering a totally new and refined driving experience characterized by a sense of engaging control and predictability.
 

 

“We have a very strong offer in the V90. Our PowerPulse technology is designed to deliver a distinct performance boost to our diesel engine, while the T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid will deliver around 410 hp and a pure electric range of around 50 km,” said Dr Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research & Development at Volvo Cars.

 

Based on the same Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) as its XC90 and S90 siblings, the V90 is the estate version
of the widely acclaimed S90 sedan which was launched at
the North American International Auto Show in January.
