Volvo Car Malaysia recently introduced the new and updated 2021 Volvo S90, with a new exterior and interior finishing that complements the latest, leading safety and technology features.
Priced at RM339,315 after sales tax exemption (on-the-road, without insurance), the S90 T8 Recharge is now available for viewing at all authorised Volvo dealers nationwide. Additionally, the T5 variant, now priced at RM328,888 (before sales tax exemption), will be available from June 2021 onwards.
Powered by Volvo’s Drive-E powertrain, the S90 Recharge T8 is equipped with a T8 Twin Engine and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery capable of producing 407 horsepower and 640Nm of torque.
Similar to the XC90, the S90 Recharge T8 carries on the rich legacy of Volvo Cars through the pronounced elegance in Volvo’s design language.
This blend of minimalist design and stylistic cues creates a premium image that is accentuated by Volvo’s key aesthetic features, such as the “Thor Hammer” LED headlight design, vertical chrome grille with the Volvo Iron Mark, and a bold and clean use of the Volvo spreadmark on the rear.
The tail lamps of the Volvo S90 Recharge T8 have also been updated to now bear a similar design to the recently launched Volvo S60 T8 R-Design, thus marrying luxury with a little sportiness.
Inside, the inclusion of vertical air blades on each side of the Sensus user interface, perforated front seats and sunroof raises the bar on elegant aesthetics.
Connectivity, Entertainment, and Safety
The Sensus panel on the Volvo S90 Recharge T8 ensures that the driver stays connected with intuitive technology and personalised convenience, featuring two front USB outlets that allows for both Apple Carplay and Android Auto, for varied compatibility.
The intuitive, 9-inch portrait touch screen gives easy and quick access to a full menu of safety features, and in-car entertainment applications for an immersive media and audio experience.
The S90 Recharge T8 introduces a comprehensively upgraded Bowers & Wilkins sound system that consists of a total of 19 speakers with an output of 1,400W to provide true high-end, in-car audio performance.
The signature Tweeter-on-Top speaker is seamlessly integrated into the design contours of the S90 Recharge T8 and sits just above the dashboard.
This speaker system in the S90 Recharge T8 also employs Bower and Wilkin’s exclusive Nautilus speaker technology for an incredible clear and immersive listening experience.
Several speaker updates, such as the new double-dome aluminium tweeters and the new generation mid-range speaker cones in Continuum composite, result in a more refined, pure and natural sound production.
Additionally, the S90 Recharge T8 also comes with a variety of standard Volvo safety features, starting with a chassis made out of boron steel for added body strength.
This comes in combination with Volvo’s Intellisafe system, which equips the S90 Recharge T8 with the latest safety technology developed by Volvo, 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 180kmh speed cap and many more.
Customers will have the option to choose from among five distinct colours: Bright Silver, Crystal White Pearl, Onyx Black, Platinum Grey and Thunder Grey.
