Volvo Cars Starts Production of Fully Electric EX90 SUV


The EX90 expands Volvo Cars’ portfolio of fully electric cars and represents a paradigm shift for the company. It is the first Volvo car powered by core computing technology, which enables a new era of safety for the company’s vehicles.

The first customer-bound EX90 that rolled off the Charleston line was a striking model painted in Denim Blue. It was destined for a customer in the United States later this year.

Volvo Cars’ first manufacturing plant in the United States opened in the summer of 2018 just outside Charleston, one of the country’s oldest and most storied cities. Today, the Charleston plant produces the EX90 and the S60 sedan, and it has the capacity to build up to 150,000 cars per year.

In recent years, Volvo Cars has made extensive investments in the facility. The body shop and paint shop have been renewed and expanded significantly, while the plant now also has a state-of-the-art battery pack production line.

With these investments, Volvo Cars’ US production facility is well-prepared for this new era in its still young history. It reflects the company’s long-term commitment to South Carolina and the United States, where Volvo Cars has operated for almost 70 years through a robust network of 281 dealerships across 47 States.

The EX90 is based on the company’s next-generation, born-electric EV technology base, with a fully electric range of up to 600 km. It is designed to be the safest Volvo car, powered by next-generation passive and active safety technology and software informed by a broad suite of sensors.

Rooted in the company’s Scandinavian design principles, the EX90 offers modern proportions that optimise safety, efficiency and aesthetics. Thanks to its seven-seater configuration, it is a perfect companion for the entire family, whole of space, versatility and comfort.

The EX90 has a powerful core system, is always connected, and can be improved over time through software updates. Volvo Cars software engineers deliver these updates, which are enabled by AI and informed by real-time data collection.

The EX90 is a testament to Volvo Cars’ global engineering capabilities and reaffirms the company’s position as a leader in the car industry’s ongoing technology shift.
