Volvo Car Malaysia unveils the new Volvo S90 Recharge T8 sedan with an opulent design.
Presenting a new exterior and interior finishing that complements the latest leading safety and technology features, Volvo Car Malaysia introduces the updated model of the Volvo S90.
With this stunning facelift, the new Volvo S90 Recharge T8 empowers drivers to be the difference when it comes to luxury, safety and sustainability.
The newly updated premium 4-door, 5-seat flagship sedan is built on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform. 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.
The combination of the four-cylinder engine and the powerful electric motor provides a powerful, performance-filled drive while producing lower CO2 emissions.
"The Volvo S90 is the embodiment of luxury for us and now with its recharged design, we want to redefine the concept of ‘travel in style’ and showcase that 'luxury' can also equate to 'safety'," says Akhtar Sulaiman, Marketing & Public Relations director for Volvo Car Malaysia.
“The aesthetics of the car – from the chrome-accented exterior and refined trims, to the updated interior with a cleaner overall look – is Scandinavian luxury at its finest. And as a final touch, the T8 Twin Engine setup in the Volvo S90 Recharge T8 gives the driver a refined, agile and powerful driving experience," he adds.
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 a minimalist stylish design 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.
Marrying luxury with a little sportiness, the tail lamps of the Volvo S90 Recharge T8 have also been updated to bear a similar design to the recently launched Volvo S60 T8 R-Design.
The Scandinavian motif is also integrated into the cabin of the car to further enhance its overall look and feel. 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 lets the driver stay connected with intuitive technology and personalised convenience, featuring two front USB outlets suited for both Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
The intuitive, 9-inch portrait touch screen gives easy access to a menu of safety features, and in-car entertainment applications for an immersive media and audio experience.
The S90 Recharge T8 introduces an 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.
This speaker system in the S90 Recharge T8 also employs Bower and Wilkin’s exclusive Nautilus speaker technology for an extraordinary listening experience.
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.
“The fundamentals surrounding safety, design and performance are the same for this model as with any other Volvo. Through the dedication of our team, we are confident that this car checks all the right boxes to provide a premium driving experience. A plug-in hybrid that considers tomorrow without compromising today’s experience, the S90 Recharge T8 is luxury that makes a difference and is the perfect choice for people who embrace their uniqueness and stand out from the crowd, ” Akhtar says.
Customers will have the option to choose from among five distinct colours: Bright Silver, Crystal White Pearl, Onyx Black, Platinum Grey and Thunder Grey.
