The new era of Volvo cars is approaching and the first model in the current lineup to be replaced will be the XC90 full-size SUV. Its successor will be called the EX90 and Volvo has unveiled the first teasers of its exterior design ahead of the official debut scheduled for November 9.

The EX90 design combines incredible aerodynamic efficiency. Based on the overall teased silhouette, it will retain typical SUV proportions but every surface will be as smooth and rounded as possible. Volvo says it took inspiration from yacht design to make the car look sleek while having a coefficient of drag (Cd) of 0.29. The Scandinavian automaker has managed to achieve this by introducing a new lidar system mounted in the front and center of its roofline.

In terms of visible design details, the EX90 appears to retain the now-iconic Thor’s Hammer headlights and wheel covers for its large alloy wheels for improved aerodynamic efficiency. The body shape features short overhangs with a wheelbase optimized for cabin space. It has a skateboard layout with the batteries housed under the flat floor of the seven-seater SUV.

Previous teasers for the EX90’s interior have revealed the updated dashboard layout. It’s an evolution of Volvo’s current design with a larger, vertically oriented central touchscreen for the infotainment system, along with a simplified widescreen for the digital driver display.

The new layout aims to provide only the most relevant information in front of the driver and the rest from the central display. It also has a new, modern-looking steering wheel with touch controls.

Technical specifications for Volvo’s next flagship SUV are pending, but we know it will be well-equipped with advanced safety and autonomous driving features. It should offer more than 600 km of range, even with a powerful dual electric motor powertrain. The EX90 is expected to arrive in India by 2024 as a rival to the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV.
