Volvo is launching a rear-wheel-drive version of its large electric SUV. With a basic finish, the attack price drops to €89,500.
If Volvo is struggling to deliver the first copies of the EX90, its new electric flagship, it does not hesitate to open orders for new versions. Launched at over €100,000, the model is becoming more affordable, on its scale of course.
For this, he loses an engine. There is therefore only one, at the rear, a new one with a power of 205 kW, or 279 hp. As a reminder, the Twin versions announce 408 and 517 hp. The performances are necessarily less mind-blowing, but remain good with a 0 to 100 km / h dispatched in 8.4 s.
As well as having less horsepower, the ‘Single’ has a slightly smaller battery, with the nominal capacity dropping from 111 to 104 kWh. Autonomy is however the same, with 580 km in the combined cycle, due to lower consumption (19.9 kWh per 100 km). Recharges are similar: up to 11 kWh in alternating current and 250 kW in direct current.

Another element to lower the price: the Single inaugurates a basic finish Start. But the equipment remains very generous. The model receives 20-inch rims, LED headlights, fixed panoramic roof, four-zone air conditioning, 14.5-inch central screen, navigation with Google connected services, digital key and, of course at Volvo, a nice selection of driving aids. For example, there is the intelligent adaptation to speed, which encourages the driver to respect the limits. The EX90 automatically offers 7 seats.
This single-engine variant costs €89,500. It also exists in an intermediate Plus finish, for €95,100, which adds the Bose sound system, the head-up display or the electrically adjustable steering wheel.
