Volvo is going electric by 2030. That process will begin in earnest with a new all-electric flagship SUV, which Volvo confirmed will be called the EX90.

When will the Volvo EX90 be revealed?

The Volvo EX90 will not be called the Embla

Volvo had previously said this SUV would receive “a name, like a child” rather than an alphanumeric designation. That led to reporting the new SUV would be called the Embla, after the first woman of Norse mythology. Volvo either changed their minds or never intended to do that.

Whatever happened, the new SUV will be the EX90. We suspect that won’t catch on as a popular name for children.

The Volvo EX90 should look a lot like the Concept Recharge

Autocar describes the EX90’s appearance as a “production ready” version of the Concept Recharge. The styling language will be similar, though some of the futuristic details — as one would expect — will be “toned down.”

The EX90 interior will be nouveau Scandinavian minimalism

The Volvo EX90 may drive itself…eventually
