Volvo has unveiled the EX90, a seven-seat SUV that, like the Volkswagen ID.Buzz, is all electric. The new flagship has the highest price tag of any Volvo, starting from £96,255. Volvo says the EX90 sets new standards for driving safety, with a range of cameras, radar and lidar sensors providing what the brand describes as an “invisible shield of safety”.

Volvo is offering the EX90 with two power outputs, 408hp and 517hp. It’s likely that lower-powered versions will follow. Both the 408hp and the 517hp models weigh just over 2.8 tonnes and have a maximum towing figure of 2.2 tonnes – a very high maximum for an electric vehicle. The caravan tow car will have a range of up to 363 miles, as well as the ability to charge from 10% to 80% in 30 minutes from an ultra-rapid charger.

Recycled materials are used extensively in the construction, including 48kg of recycled plastics and bio-based materials.

Inside, the dash is dominated by the 14.5-inch Google-based infotainment system, which supports wireless Apple CarPlay. You won’t just be able to connect your phone to the car once inside – it will act as your key, unlocking it as you approach.

On sale now, deliveries of the EX90 will begin next year.
