This is the 2020 Volvo S90 and it is the brand’s flagship luxury sedan. It is equipped with a 2L turbocharged and supercharged 4-cylinder engine as well as a plugin hybrid electric motor. The front wheels are powered by the gas engine while the rear wheels are powered by the electric motor. The combined power of these two motors gives the S90 a healthy 400 HP and 475 TRQ. The car can travel on electric-only mode for 34 km and then automatically switch to the gas engine and use regenerative braking to restore the battery.
The S90 is larger than S60 and in traditional Volvo fashion also available in a wagon as V90. Volvo’s luxury car manufacturing status combined with the complexity of this power terrain, the sedan starts at $67,000 and climbs up to $100,000 when equipped with all available options. Some of the options that customers can check-off include an Active Suspension and a Bowers & Wilkins Premium Sound System. The S90 directly competes with BMW 530e which is also equipped with a similar power terrain and can travel up to 30km on the electric battery. Volvo has managed to sell over 2,100 units since its introduction in the Canadian market in 2016
