Volvo EM90 electric premium MPV

The Volvo EM90 electric premium multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) has been revealed; although it’s going on sale in China, plans for the UK are still awaited.

The EM90 is being marketed as a solution for family trips and executive business transport. With a focus on interior comfort, Volvo says that the 6-seater EM90 “is designed to be your living room on the move”.

The EM90 has a 116 kWh battery which provides a range of up to 457 miles based on the China Light-Duty Vehicle Test Cycle (CLTC). A 10% to 80% charge is expected to take less than 30 minutes and the EM90 can is capable of bi-directional charging. A 200kW electric motor delivers a 0-62mph acceleration time of 8.3 seconds.

The EM90 is equipped with advanced computing power and an all-round sensor set with high-definition cameras, surround-view cameras, a millimetre-wave radar and ultrasonic radars. 

Refinement is enhanced by sound isolation and road noise cancellation technology, along with dual-chamber air suspension and ‘silent’ tyres.

In addition to the 15.4-inch infotainment screen for the driver, a high-definition 15.6-inch screen mounted in the roof folds down to provide entertainment for the family or for a business video meeting, with a camera if needed. The screen also supports mobile screen projection and third-party apps, helping to provide a theatre-like experience.

The third row of seats are accessible thanks to the sliding rear doors and sliding second row seats. Second-row lounge seats with ‘zero-gravity cushions’, seat upholstery patterns inspired by mountain ranges in the mist, and a large panoramic sunroof with a setting that recreates the Northern lights or Swedish forests, complete the spacious, premium living room feel.
