Volvo Cars has unveiled the new fully electric premium Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV), the Volvo EM90. It will launch first in China, the world’s largest car market.
The car comes with a 116 kWh battery and the charging time from 10 to 80 per cent is expected to be under 30 minutes.
Powered by an e-motor with 200kW power output, the EM90 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.3 seconds.
This feature allows the owner to use the battery of the EM90 as a power bank to charge other electric cars and appliances.
A broad suite of advanced driver assistance systems inside the EM90 is enabled by advanced computing power and an all-round sensor set with high-definition cameras, surround view cameras, a millimetre wave radar and ultrasonic radars.
Jim Rowan, chief executive at Volvo Cars, says: “With the EM90, we’re taking Volvo Cars’ heritage and leadership in safety into the exciting new electric MPV segment. t allows us to tap new market demand we’ve not explored before and broadens the appeal of the Volvo brand to more people.”
Volvo Cars’ production plants are located in Gothenburg, Ghent (Belgium), South Carolina (US), Chengdu, Daqing and Taizhou (China).
