And you'll be able to get one with 410 hp.
Right. We know. Station wagons are so 1960s thru mid-90s suburban family cars. Replaced by minivans, then SUVs, and most recently crossovers, wagons fell out of favor years ago but Volvo has always believed in them. For 60 years, in fact. And now it’s unveiled the all-new V90, essentially the wagon version of the also new and slick S90 sedan. Set for a Geneva debut, the V90 is a part of Volvo’s top-of-the-line 90 series and built on the Swedish brand’s modular Scalable Product Architecture (SPA).
But can Volvo get buyers, especially Americans, to pay for a premium wagon? According to Volvo’s Senior VP for Design, Thomas Ingenlath, "The modern premium estate is all about the intriguing combination of a luxurious experience with the functional origins of the estate silhouette.
The sophisticated ambience of our new Volvo interiors is combined with a great cargo space, providing the right kind of functionality – whether through connectivity or cargo and storage solutions." Oh, and there’s this: the V90 can be had with a T8 Twin Engine gasoline plug-in hybrid set up that’s good for around 410 hp. It even has a pure electric range of 31 miles. But a 410 hp luxury wagon instead of another lame crossover? We’re so down. Full details will come in just over a week from Geneva.
