The EX90 is coming, and it's set to be a stunner.
As we near the November 9 debut of the all-electric Volvo EX90, the company's PR machine is ramping up interest, which means an onslaught of teasers. These latest images show some exterior design elements of the brand's sleek electric flagship SUV.
Previously, we've seen teasers of both the car's safety systems and its new interior elements. Volvo places a heavy focus on design, and these new images give us a better idea of what the new SUV will look like once it hits dealerships sometime next year.
We can see from the blurry photos above that the car will feature a familiar face, with the classic Thor's Hammer headlight design and a squared-off rear with tall taillights.
We can now see that the car will have an almost flat face, another Volvo design touch. From the images we've seen of the vehicle, there will be no mistaking the EX90 for anything else but an EV.
On a slightly more important note, we have the little box glued to the roof. The "Volvo for Life" text is a bit odd, but the box behind it is no rally car air-scoop. Those days, sadly, are gone for Volvo. Instead, this is a Li-DAR sensor that will be standard across the EX90 lineup.
It detects pedestrians up to 820 feet away and will eventually act as a critical cornerstone of Volvo's upcoming Ride Pilot hands-off, eyes-off autonomous driving software. Volvo says that California will be the first market in which this technology will be available.
The EX90 will be unveiled in Stockholm on November 9, with the first models due in showrooms come 2023.
