Chasing Cars has compared prices with the United Kingdom to estimate how expensive the new EX90 will be when it lands in Australia
But we want to know how expensive the flagship EX90 could be when it lands in Australia.
Based on new EX90 prices in the United Kingdom, the EX90 is around 15 percent more expensive than the current flagship XC90 – the Recharge Ultimate T8 AWD PHEV.
The seven-seat XC90 Recharge currently costs $116,511 before on-road costs, making it the priciest Volvo currently on sale in Australia.
Add 15.95 percent to the current XC90 flagship grade and you get $135,094 – the likely starting price of the new EX90 in base form.
This would be the price before luxury car tax and registration is factored in. Driveaway pricing for the Volvo EX90 could blow out to roughly $155,000 locally.
Official pricing for Australia is likely to be released sometime during 2023.
The full UK specification for the EX90 has been published on Volvo’s UK website, giving us a very clear idea of what will be the standard specification for the new model.
Standard features for the EX90 include adaptive air suspension, large 22-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, tyre pressure monitoring, four zone climate control, a fixed panoramic sunroof, a head-up display and an 8.0-inch driver display.
Other standard features include a 14.5-inch portrait touchscreen, Google Automotive operating system, wireless phone charging, wireless Apple CarPlay, six USB-C ports across the three rows of seating and a Bowers and Wilkins 25-speaker sound system that includes speakers in the front headrests.
Mechanically, the EX90 will have a large 111kWh battery pack and will be offered with two dual-motor variants with the second being significantly more powerful.
The standard dual-motor will have outputs of 300kW/770Nm, while the Performance variant will have 380kW/910Nm.
Electric range is claimed by Volvo to be 585km for the standard dual-motor and 580km for the Performance.
In typical Volvo fashion, the EX90 will be fitted with an array of safety features as standard.
Debuting on the model will be a roof-mounted LIDAR sensor, as well as a long-range radar, front and rear corner radars and side camera sensors.
The EX90 will also feature a driver monitoring system, as well as lane-keep assist, blind spot assist, cross traffic alert, autobrake and rear collision warning. Several airbags will be standard, including full length curtain and front seat inner airbags.
