A true seven-seat, fully electric SUV, the Volvo EX90 includes the highest level of standard safety in a Volvo car and represents the start of a new era for the brand as it moves ahead on a global ambition to be a fully electric automaker by 2030. The EX90 will be the fourth fully electric vehicle in Volvo Car Canada’s lineup, joining the C40 Recharge, XC40 Recharge and the all-new EX30, the company’s smallest ever SUV, designed with sustainability in mind.

The Volvo EX90 rides on a dedicated platform that eliminates the need for luxury car buyers to decide between practicality and full electrification by offering up to 480 kilometers* of tailpipe-emission-free driving range and the ability to charge from 10-80 per cent in about 30 minutes*.

At CIAS, attendees will have the opportunity to test drive the C40 and XC40 Recharge around Toronto’s downtown core and on the indoor EV Test Track – a returning feature to this year’s show. Guided by experts, guests will be able to test drive the future of mobility, right inside the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

  • Safe space technology: The level of standard safety in the Volvo EX90 is higher than any Volvo car before it. It’s designed to understand the driver and its surroundings to help keep you, your loved ones, and others in traffic safer. It is also designed to get smarter and safer over time, as it learns from new data and receives updates over-the-air.
  • Tireless sensors: The sensors—one long-range lidar, five radars, eight cameras, and 16 ultrasonic sensors together create an invisible shield of safety. The Volvo EX90 driver monitoring systems can identify if the driver is distracted or suffering a medical event. The car can intervene if necessary, including coming to a complete stop. ​
  • Intuitive display: Inside the Volvo EX90, a 14.5-inch center 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 favorite 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.
  • Sound as it’s made to be heard: the Volvo EX90 features an audio system that creates an immersive, high resolution sonic experience. The Bowers & Wilkins High Fidelity sound system pairs perfectly with the quietest Volvo cabin yet.
  • Redefining luxury: The Volvo EX90 features materials sourced from natural, recycled and renewable sources that set a new standard for premium interior design. Materials that further enhance the experience of contemporary, sustainable luxury, including Nordico upholstery, created from textiles made from recycled material such as PET bottles, as well as bio-attributed polymer from forests in Sweden and Finland.
