Volvo is lowering the price of access to its imposing EX90 in favor of a new rear-wheel drive version, much less powerful, but which does not even lose autonomy.
Despite a rather high entry price, the Volvo EX90 is already a success. The more than 100,000 euros did not put buyers off, since the Swedish brand had very quickly been forced to close the order book for its future large 100% electric SUV. And that all the models planned for France had quickly found takers.
The good news for those who would be interested in this EX90 but who would have been a little patient, is that Volvo has just announced a big price drop, thanks to the arrival of a rear-wheel drive version, as we we announced it to you in December 2022. A way of addressing more varied profiles as the Gothenburg firm specifies, even if still with a well-stocked portfolio.
Autonomy that flirts with 600 km
Don’t make you wait any longer on the announced price drop: the Volvo EX90 is now available from 89,500 euros. We are still on a high price but which now appears 10,000 euros cheaper than the most “accessible” Tesla Model X, its main competitor which also offers up to seven seats.
We are talking here about a new version, propulsion, with two-wheel drive therefore. While the EX90 was previously only offered in four-wheel-drive Twin 408 horsepower and Twin Performance 517 horsepower versions, the newcomer called EX90 Single develops 205 kW, or 279 horsepower.
The good news is that its 104 kWh battery still offers excellent autonomy that has nothing to envy to that of the higher versions: 580 kilometers. That’s a mere five miles less than the four-wheel-drive EX90s.
The same driving aids
Two finishes are offered on this new Volvo EX90 Single, Start and Plus. For a price difference of 10,000 euros everything stacks between the two, anyway. However, the new Start finish still offers the famous Lidar that can be guessed under the bump at the top of the windshield. The difference is mainly in the audio system (no Bose Premium), the absence of a head-up display, less sophisticated interior lighting, or even seats with two-position lumbar supports, not four. in Plus finish.
On the other hand, the entry-level EX90 does not shy away from any driver assistance equipment, which remains identical to that of the higher levels: intelligent collision anticipation system (or Safe Space Technology), system for understanding the Driver (SCC) and Occupant Detection System (ODS).
Six or seven seats, for the same price
We can also note that now the intermediate Twin version also lowers its entry ticket with the arrival of the Plus finish, allowing to arrive at 95,100 euros.

As for the highest finish called Ultra offered on the EX90 Twin and Twin Performance, it now offers the possibility of choosing between a six-seat (three rows of two seats) or seven-seat interior configuration. And that at no extra cost. When you know that the Tesla Model X charges its six-seater configuration at 7,800 euros, and the seven-seater one at 4,200 euros, it’s a big advantage for the Swedish.
