Volvo EX90 Didedahkan Sebagai SUV Perdana 7 Tempat Duduk Semua Elektrik
Volvo EX90 semua elektrik telah dipersembahkan, menandakan permulaan era baharu di Volvo Cars.
Setelah berbulan-bulan mengusik kita, akhirnya Volvo Cars telah mendedahkan sepenuhnya SUV terbaharu Volvo – EX90. EX90 ialah SUV 7 tempat duduk semua elektrik yang akan dijual bersama dan kemudian menggantikan sepenuhnya XC90 sebagai produk peringkat teratas syarikat.
EX90 berdasarkan semua asas baharu walaupun berkongsi perkadaran XC90 semasa. Berpegang pada beberapa bahagian konsep Embla, Volvo telah mengalihkan penderia LiDAR, kamera dan modul radar ke bahagian berbulu kecil di atas bumbung tepat di atas cermin depan. Mereka telah mengecat bumbung hitam untuk menyembunyikan kehadiran penderia ini dengan lebih baik. Terima kasih kepada penempatan ganjil housing ini, penderia boleh mendapatkan pandangan 360 darjah persekitaran kereta.
EX90 juga menggunakan Platform NVIDIA Drive AI, Xavier dan Orin, serta Platform Snapdragon Cockpit untuk menjalankan fungsi teras kereta di sekeliling keselamatan, infotainmen, pengurusan bateri dan banyak lagi. Pendekatan berteknologi tinggi untuk pembuatan kereta ini bermakna EX90 akan menjadi lebih baik dengan masa apabila perisian dikemas kini dan dioptimumkan.
Volvo EX90 akan tersedia sebagai model pacuan semua roda dengan dua motor magnet kekal untuk dimulakan. Kuasa maksimum dinilai pada 496 hp dan tork 910Nm, tetapi juga menjangkakan beratnya sekurang-kurangnya 2 tan memandangkan saiznya yang besar dan pek bateri 111kWj. Julat dijangka kira-kira 600km, yang merupakan perkara yang bagus untuk dipertimbangkan. Pengecasan pantas bateri daripada keadaan pengecasan 10% hingga 80% hanya mengambil masa 30 minit.
Bersama-sama dengan pelancaran EX90, Volvo Cars turut mengembangkan pegangan mereka dalam usaha sama enjin pembakaran dalaman mereka dengan Geely yang dipanggil Aurobay. Langkah ini pada asasnya bermakna Volvo Cars akan menumpukan semua sumbernya ke dalam pembangunan powertrain elektrik dan menjauhi enjin bahan api fosil.
Malah, Volvo menggandakan kenderaan elektrik bateri, dengan mengatakan bahawa bermula dengan EX90, mereka akan mendedahkan kereta elektrik sepenuhnya baharu setiap tahun dengan tujuan untuk menjual hanya kereta elektrik sepenuhnya menjelang tahun 2030. Ini adalah di atas matlamat sedia ada mereka. menjadi syarikat neutral iklim menjelang 2040. Volvo XC90 akan dibina di Amerika Syarikat dan di China – dua daripada pasaran terbesar syarikat itu dan secara kebetulan juga pasaran terbesar untuk kenderaan elektrik.

A true seven-seater, all-electric SUV that further raises our standards in safety and a more sustainable lifestyle: the new Volvo EX90 represents the start of a new era for our company in which we set a decisive course for a fully electric future.
Starting with the Volvo EX90, we’ll reveal one new fully electric car each year. By 2030, we aim to sell only fully electric cars, one of the most ambitious electrification blueprints in the automotive industry and crucial to our ambition to be a climate-neutral company by 2040.
We revealed our new fully electric flagship SUV to the world in downtown Stockholm today, reflecting our Swedish roots. At the same time, reflecting our global footprint as a company, the Volvo EX90 will be built in the USA starting next year and later also in China. By then, we aim for those two production facilities to be climate-neutral.
A new instant classic in Scandinavian design, the Volvo EX90 defines the principle of form following function. It’s a versatile, stylish family car with modern proportions, combined with cutting-edge technology in core computing, connectivity and electrification to optimise safety, efficiency and aesthetics.
Keeping you and your loved ones safe
The standard safety in the Volvo EX90 is also higher than any Volvo car before it. It’s designed to understand you and its surroundings to help keep you, your loved ones and others in traffic safe. It can also get smarter and safer over time, as it learns from new data and receives updates.
The Volvo EX90 has an invisible shield of safety enabled by our latest sensing technology, inside and outside. State-of-the art sensors like cameras, radars and lidar are connected to the car’s high-performance core computers, where NVIDIA DRIVE runs Volvo Cars’ in-house software to create a real-time, 360-degree view of the world.
Our sensors don’t get tired or distracted. They are designed to respond and react when you’re just a fraction too late. Our lidar, delivered by Luminar, can sense the road in front of you, whether it’s day or night, also at highway speeds. It can see small objects hundreds of metres ahead, creating more time to inform, act and avoid. The sensors also contribute to improve the reliability and overall performance of our assisted driving function Pilot Assist, with a new steering support while changing lanes.
Inside, our invisible shield of safety also looks out for you. Special sensors and cameras, powered by our own in-house developed algorithms, gauge eye gaze concentration. The technology allows the Volvo EX90 to understand when you’re distracted, drowsy or otherwise inattentive, beyond what has been possible in a Volvo car to date.
It’ll alert you, first softly nudging, then more insistent. And if the unthinkable happens, and you fall asleep or are taken ill while driving, the Volvo EX90 is designed to safely stop and call for help.
Finally, thanks to the state-of-the-art sensor set including lidar, the Volvo EX90 is the first Volvo that’s hardware-ready for unsupervised driving in the future.
Technology with a purpose
A core system – powered by NVIDIA DRIVE AI platforms Xavier and Orin, Snapdragon® Cockpit Platforms from Qualcomm Technologies and in-house developed software by Volvo engineers – runs most of the core functions inside the car, from safety and infotainment to battery management. The end result is a more responsive and enjoyable experience inside the car.
In other words, your Volvo EX90 won’t be just a new car, it will be a highly advanced computer on wheels. Even better, just like your smartphone or your laptop, the Volvo EX90 is designed to get better over time, thanks to regular over-the-air software updates.
By combining the state-of-the-art computing power from Snapdragon’ Cockpit Platforms with the visualisation capabilities of Unreal Engine, the 3D tool developed by Epic Games and used to power some of the world’s largest games, to give you lightning-fast computing power and high-quality graphics on the in-car screens and head-up display.
A 14.5-inch centre screen is your gateway to one of the best infotainment systems on offer, with Google built in. Google apps and services including hands-free help from Google Assistant, Google Maps navigation and more of your favourite apps on Google Play all come built in. The displays in the Volvo EX90 help you keep your eyes on the road by offering you the right information at the right time. The Volvo EX90 will also be compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay.
Thanks to the standard 5G connection where available, it’s never been easier to install the apps you need on your home screen and enjoy highly intuitive navigation. You can also stream your favourite music through the new, reference-quality Bowers & Wilkins audio system featuring Dolby Atmos as a Volvo-first, plus head rest-integrated speakers for immersive sound.
The Volvo EX90 will also come with phone key technology as standard. Your smartphone serves as your car key and automatically unlocks the car and starts a personal welcoming sequence as you approach. Your personal profile will also be loaded automatically as you enter the car.
All of this technology comes together in one of the most pleasant and elegant car interiors on the market, full of natural and responsibly-sourced materials. That interior composition also reflects our sustainability ambitions, such as being a fully circular and climate-neutral company by 2040.
Supporting a more sustainable lifestyle
With its brand new, in-house developed fully electric technology base, the Volvo EX90 is your perfect companion for a more sustainable family lifestyle. Delivering up to 600 kilometres of tailpipe emission-free driving range on a single charge, according to the WLTP test cycle, it charges from 10 to 80 per cent in under 30 minutes.
The initially available twin-motor all-wheel drive version is powered by a 111kWh battery and two permanent magnet electric motors together delivering in its performance version 380 kW (517 hp) and 910 Nm of torque. In combination with the brand new chassis, this creates a great and smooth driving experience.
The Volvo EX90 contains approximately 15 per cent of recycled steel, 25 per cent of recycled aluminium as well as 48 kilogrammes of recycled plastics and bio-based materials, which corresponds to around 15 per cent of the total plastic used in the car – the highest level of any Volvo car to date.
Finally, the Volvo EX90 is our first car with all the necessary hardware to enable bi-directional charging. It’s a technology whereby you can use your car battery as an extra energy supply, for example to power your home, other electric devices or another electric Volvo car. We plan to make bi-directional charging available in the future, starting with selected markets.
