Volvo Car Malaysia today revealed the 2021 Volvo S90 T8 Recharge sedan. Equipped with Volvo's Drive-E powertrain, the 2021 S90 will now output 407 hp and 640 Nm of torque bringing its top-line numbers identical to its S60 sibling.
Built on the SPA platform that has underpinned releases from the 60 and 90 series from the last few years, this S90 facelift carries on with Volvo's signature looks from the “Thor Hammer” LED headlight design, vertical chrome grille with the Volvo Iron Mark, Orrefors crystal shift knob, the updated rear tail lamps on the S90 have also been updated to bear resemblance to the recently launched S60 T8 R-Design.
Connectivity in the shape of the 9-inch Sensus panel ensures the driver is always connected on the go. Two USB ports in the front support both Apple Carplay and Android Auto. If you thought 14 speakers (from the previous S90) were fancy then the 19 speakers upgraded Bowers & Wilkins setup in the 2021 Volvo S90 will provide you with aural pleasure like none other. The signature Tweeter-on-Top speaker is seamlessly integrated into the design contours of the S90 T8 Recharge and sits just above the dashboard. We will be looking to test the different room modes available on the S90. Will it be able to transport you to the Gothenburg Concert Hall or to a Swedish theatre? We'll have to wait to find out.
With a chassis made out of boron steel for added body strength, the 2021 Volvo S90 will come packed full of Volvo's list of safety features such as the Blind Spot Information Systems (BLIS), City Safety, Cross-Traffic Alert, Front and Rear Warning and Mitigation Support, Lane Keeping Aid, Pilot Assist, a 180km/h speed cap and many more.
“The fundamentals surrounding safety, design and performance are the same for this model as with any other Volvo. Through the dedication of our team, we are confident that this car checks all the right boxes to provide a premium driving experience. A plug-in hybrid that considers tomorrow without compromising today’s experience, the S90 T8 Recharge is luxury that makes a difference and is the perfect choice for people who embrace their uniqueness and stand out from the crowd,” said Akhtar Sulaiman, Marketing & Public Relations Director for Volvo Car Malaysia.
