It’s unclear what’s happening to the 2024 Volvo XC90. Based on the recent patent fillings, it seems that Volvo has their own plans concerning the company’s flagship SUV, the XC90. It’s most likely that the Swedish auto manufacturer would embrace electric technology and offer the new lineup happily. According to many reports and sources, the new vehicle would be coming as either EXC90 or it would be coming with Embla nameplate. It would be offered alongside the XC90 facelifted model. The company senses that there is strong requirements and demands in Chinese and North American markets for hybrid models.
There have also been rendering images made by the fans, although it isn’t made by the company. They haven’t made any confirmation about the images either, claiming it to be true or not. But from these images, we can see that the new model is quite promising as it is solid and it is good looking.
You have to admit that the present XC90 comes with handsome style. The vehicle is already well proportioned without the addition of strange details, chrome, or even imposing grilles. It’s a good thing that the successor would carry the same language design, mostly inspired by Recharge Concept from last year.
From the model alone, you can see that EV fundamentals are very clear and obvious, including the grille panel that is flanked by headlamps (the Thor’s Hammer types) and also corner vent inlays. If you take a closer look from the side, the vehicle looks like a stretched version of XC60 with Polestar sheet metal, along with crisp fenders and finely-tailored shoulder lines. On the back, the unique cascading taillamps create unique look and attractive illumination, managed in such a unique way.
Design and Layout
The big crossover would be constructed on SPA2 (Scalable Product Architecture) platform, which is also used in the future Polestar 3. It would also come with Nvidia auto driver assist abilities (drive powered type) with inclusion of LiDAR tech together with the highly advanced sensors.
Powertrain and Performance
The future 2024 Volvo XC90 would be offered with one as well as two motor options, able to generate 400 hp and also 455 hp. The electric power would likely come in 100 kWh li-ion pack paired with 800V structure, making it possible to cover a range of 372 miles (around 600 kilometers) and DC fast charge.
