⚡Volvo is getting ready to introduce a new electric car, maybe under the ES90 moniker.

⚡The ES90 and the EX90 SUV are expected to utilize the same battery pack and share the same architecture.

⚡This car is expected to face competition from the Mercedes-Benz EQE and BMW i5.

A mid-size luxury sedan designed to take the place of the S90 will be Volvo’s next electric car, similar to how the EX90 was introduced as the XC90’s electric counterpart. The four-door will be known as the ES90, and it will share the EX90’s base, battery pack, and other powertrain parts, according to Swedish magazine Teknikens Värld.

The length of the ES90 is said to fall between the long-wheelbase S90 that is now available in the United States and the discontinued short-wheelbase variant, according to leaked Chinese reports.

However, because of its much longer wheelbase, it is likely to feature shorter overhangs and very different proportions. Both rear- and all-wheel-drive variants are expected to be available, and based on our best estimation, the smaller and lighter sedan may have a longer range than the EX90, which boasts a 111.0-kWh battery pack and a 482 kilometer/300-mile range.

This new model makes sense to call it the ES90, a moniker Volvo filed for earlier this year. However, the Swedish article did mention that Lexus would object to the ES moniker being used, so Volvo might choose to take an alternative approach.

According to the source, series manufacturing of this new Volvo car is expected to begin in May 2024 in China, which means it might arrive soon. It will go up against a burgeoning field of electric luxury vehicles, the Mercedes-Benz EQE and BMW i5, which will be its principal competitors.
