The Volvo EX90 will be the Swedish automaker’s new flagship all-electric SUV, equipped with a number of standard safety features never seen in Volvo cars before.
Volvo has officially announced that the all-electric flagship SUV EX90 will officially launch on November 9, the EX90, which will essentially be the electric representation of the Swiss automaker’s existing ICE model. Dictionary. XC90, will be equipped with unmatched safety technology. EX90 will join Rechargeable XC40 and C40 Recharge in Volvo’s electric vehicle lineup. This is also the Swedish brand’s second ICE model after the XC40 to get an all-electric makeover.
Volvo describes the upcoming EV as ‘the safest Volvo ever’. It will feature a LiDAR sensor and an invisible security shield that includes the latest detection technology, allowing the car to understand the driver’s state of mind and the world around them. Jim Rowan, Managing Director at Volvo “We will continue to innovate until cars are no longer out of control, until we are a 100% carbon-free company. All to save more lives,” Cars said. , in line with our very special trend. The EX90 is the beginning of a new era for Volvo Cars, carrying our legacy of safety, quality and innovation into the future.”
The EX90 will come with eight cameras, sixteen ultrasonic sensors, and one LiDAR sensor. In Volvo’s words, this is ‘a method of remote detection that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure range with great accuracy and reliability. It can detect not only the road ahead, day or night, as well as small objects, hundreds of meters ahead, giving time to notice, take action and to avoid’.
For example, a pedestrian can be detected by the system at a depth of 250 meters, or even a tire at a depth of 120 meters, even if this is a very dark object and even if it is night. According to recent Volvo research, this LiDAR system can reduce fatal crashes by up to 20% and prevent overall accidents by up to 9%. LiDAR technology will be fitted in the EX90 between the top of the windshield and the roof.
The EX90 will debut as standard equipment on Volvo models as ‘Driver Understanding System’, a new system that will make its debut on the new EX90, which will be standard equipment. This technology will be responsible for detecting whether the driver is in the best condition to drive. The system uses two cameras capable of detecting early signs that the driver is fatigued. This can be verified by observing your view patterns.
The interior of the EX90 will have an internal radar that detects signs of life. This monitors the entire interior, including the luggage compartment, and detects minimal signs, even breathing. In the event someone leaves an infant or animal inside the vehicle, the EX90 will alert the driver by sending an alert message to the smartphone-linked app.
