Volvo EM90 rolls off production line – 738km range EV MPV, China first

Volvo’s first electric MPV, the Volvo EM90 has rolled off the company’s production line in China. Deliveries are expected to take place in March this year for the China market and Volvo is considering other markets as well for the EM90.

Volvo has shared images of the EM90 rolling off its production line through its social media account, not long after its unveiling to the world back in November 2023. Costing RMB818,000 (approx. RM528k), the EM90 EV MPV has an electric range of up to 738 km (CLTC) thanks to a large 116-kWh battery pack. Its WLTP range is expected to be more conservative.

That 116-kWh battery can be charged from 10% to 80% in just 30 minutes with DC charging. Based on the Zeekr 009, the Volvo EM90 is propelled by a single-motor setup that outputs 200 kW (272 hp metric). This enables a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 8.3 seconds.

On the outside, the EM90 features the signature Thor’s hammer headlights at the front. These headlights will greet you with an illuminating front. Also at the front is the first-ever illuminated grille on a Volvo car. Interestingly, skyscrapers inspire the Volvo EM90’s design and you can see this influence in the vertical design elements at the front and back.

Inside, the Volvo EM90 introduces Volvo’s new take on cabin design. For the first time, a Volvo model features a large floating horizontal 15.4-inch head unit. The digital instrument cluster is also a floating type, indicating the Sino origin of the EM90. New cabin design aside, the EM90 still features the signature Volvo Crystal gear selector on the centre console.

The Volvo EM90 joins the likes of the Volvo EX30 and EX90 in terms of its naming convention, although it is only made available for China for the time being.
