Volvo S90 to launch at January Detroit show
Volvo has revealed a teaser image of the new S90 saloon ahead of its unveiling at January’s Detroit Motor Show.
The replacement for the S80 is a bigger car, pitched squarely at Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Jaguar XF and BMW 5-series. A V90 estate version will follow, and Volvo has also revealed that a long-wheelbase version will be built in China, though it’s not known if that would be considered for Europe.
The Volvo S90 and V90 share the underpinnings of the new XC90, and will be offered with the same choice of powertrains as the XC90, including the 394bhp T8 ‘Twin Engine’ plug-in hybrid and the D4 and D5 diesel engines.
Volvo has also announced a new collaboration with Microsoft in developing next-generation technologies, including holographic imaging and autonomous vehicle technologies.
The car is expected to go on sale in the UK in the second half of 2016.
