Volvo EX90 Fully Electric, Full-Sized SUV Goes Into Production In The USA

The Volvo EX90 is the company’s first ever fully-electric full-sized SUV and it’s now in production.

The new Volvo EX90 represents a major milestone for the Swedish automaker. Not only is it expanding Volvo’s electric vehicle lineup, but it marks a fundamental shift with groundbreaking core computing technology that enables next-generation safety features.

The first customer-bound EX90 in a striking Denim Blue paint rolled off the production line in Volvo’s Charleston, South Carolina manufacturing plant. The premium electric SUV is proudly made in the USA for American customers.

“The fully electric Volvo EX90 kicks off a new era for our company – an era defined by enhanced safety, sustainability, and human-centric technology,” said Volvo Cars CEO Jim Rowan. “With U.S. production in South Carolina, the EX90 reflects our deep commitment to this vital market.”

Charleston Plant Prepares for Electric Future

Volvo’s Charleston plant opened in 2018 and currently builds the S60 sedan in addition to the new EX90 SUV. With major investments in body, paint, and a new battery pack line, the facility can produce up to 150,000 vehicles annually.

These investments allow the South Carolina factory to be well-positioned for Volvo’s electric transformation while demonstrating the automaker’s long-term presence in the United States dating back nearly 70 years with 281 dealerships across 47 states.

The Born Electric, Safest Volvo Yet

Based on a dedicated EV platform, the seven-seat EX90 offers up to 600 km of electric range. Utilizing a comprehensive suite of sensors and next-gen active/passive safety systems, Volvo claims it will be the safest model they’ve ever produced.

With Scandinavian design principles, the spacious EX90 optimizes aerodynamics, efficiency, and aesthetic appeal. Its powerful core computing keeps the SUV connected for over-the-air software updates to improve functionality over time.
