The 2024 EX90 likely will not be the vehicle that achieves that. But it is clear that Volvo is serious about its goal. Most of these safety features will be next-generation. And it will be interesting to see how it performs in the real world, as well as how Volvo trickles it down to other models.

According to Car and Driver, the base setup will make 496 horsepower thanks to its electric powertrain. But, it wouldn’t be surprising if more powerful variants were introduced at a higher cost. The 2024 EX90 will likely start around $80,000, which is a luxury price for a luxury vehicle.
Is Volvo going electric?
By 2030, Volvo plans to be an all-electric brand. That means it will no longer sell cars with gasoline engines. To some, that might be a bit of a disappointment, but the future of automotive is electric. Whether we like it or not. As an electric SUV, the EX90 marks the start of that transition. Although the brand has already been exploring the world of electric.

Volvo is not the only automaker taking advantage of EV performance and efficiency. If you need any indicator of what Ford thinks about electric powertrains, its top-selling F-150 pickup truck can now be had as an EV. And many other companies are doing the same with their trucks.
The 2024 EX90 should go into production at some point in 2023. But as always, there could be some delays depending on how the supply chain is looking. Because it is a flagship product, it wouldn’t be surprising if it is a bit difficult to find one at every Volvo dealership. Of course, only time will tell what actually happens with this electric SUV. It’s hard not to see it being a hit, even with its higher price point.
