For example, it should bear a different designation, it will reportedly be called ES90. Production of the car with the internal designation V511 should start in January of next year, at a plant in Chengdu, China.

The Volvo ES90 follows the S90 body type, it will still be a large sedan – although it should look more like a fastback. According to the leaked technical data, the novelty will measure five meters without a single millimeter, and its advantage should also be a generous interior space, which will be taken care of by a 3,100 mm long wheelbase. For comparison: the current Volvo S90 measures 4,969 mm in length and its wheelbase reaches 2,941 mm.

Important changes can be found in the range of power units. While customers can purchase the S90 with a combustion engine under the hood, in the Czech Republic the car is currently available as a mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid, the ES90 will be exclusively electric. The Volvo ES90 will want to compete with rivals such as the BMW i5, Mercedes-Benz EQE or Tesla Model S.

The SPA2 platform, which is already used by the Volvo EX90 or the Polestar 3 crossover, will serve as the basis. The EX90 SUV can also serve as a certain hint for the technology of the upcoming ES90 sedan.

In its guts could be the same 111kWh battery, thanks to which Volvo in the case of the EX90 attracts a range of up to 685 kilometers in the city and 585 km in combined traffic. For a more aerodynamic sedan, the range should be even longer.

The novelty will probably be available in a version with one electric motor and single-axle drive, but also as a four-wheeler with two electric motors. Performance can again be hinted at by the EX90 SUV, where customers can choose between versions with a combined output of 300 and 380 kW.

The popular SUV XC60 should also say goodbye next year. This too will turn into an all-electric model.
