Equipped with a host of new technologies ranging from cutting edge safety to cloudbased apps and services, the Volvo S90 is further proof of the Swedish brand’s continuing transformation. With the launch of the XC90, Volvo Cars has made a clear statement of intent as it is now clearly and firmly in the game for premium sedan.
With USD 11 billion of investment over the past five years, Volvo Cars have not only re-imagined what the company can be; it is now delivering on its promise of a resurgent and relevant car brand.
The new Volvo S90 comes equipped with an advanced semi-autonomous drive feature, Pilot Assist. The system gives gentle steering inputs to keep the car properly aligned within lane markings up to motorway speeds of around 130 km/h and no longer needs to follow another car. Pilot Assist is another step towards full autonomous drive – a key innovation area for Volvo.
The S90 will also come with a clean and powerful T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain and one of the most luxuriously appointed interiors and connected infotainment systems in the large sedan segment.
Volvo cars’ idea was to bring something entirely new to this rather conservative segment and deliver a visual expression that exudes leadership and confidence on the exterior. On the inside, Volvo Cars has taken the S90 to the next level, delivering a high-end luxury experience that promises comfort and control.
The S90 also introduces a world first function to City Safety large animal detection a system capable of detecting large animals such as elk, horses or moose, night or day. The technology offers an intuitive warning and brake support to help avoid a collision. The S90 has also benefitted from Volvo Cars’ recent investment in a highly advanced chassis simulator.
The S90 has taken a big stride forwards in terms of driving dynamics, performance and ride. The company has completely redesigned the Volvo driving experience from the ground up to deliver a sense of precision, engaging control and comfort. Further details of the new Volvo S90 will be available, following the premiere at NAIAS.
