You probably won't believe it, but this is a new Volvo - AutoReview.nl

When you say Volvo, you don't immediately think of an MPV that is over five meters long. Yet that is what the Volvo EM90 pictured here is. For those who don't like the Volvo EM90 at all, we have good news: it will most likely stay safely behind the Great Wall of China.

The Volvo EM90 is nothing like what Volvo has put on the market in the past. It is all the better that Volvo has managed to link the large electric 6-seater to its history. The Volvo Duett from the 1950s was also designed with as much interior space and flexibility as possible, says Volvo. Volvo's first station wagon even served as a source of inspiration for the now unveiled Volvo EM90. As far as we're concerned, the only similarity is that it's also on four wheels...

Chinese motorists love cars like the Volvo EM90. Big, spacious, flashy and electric. We have no problem with that at all, because as long as demand is high there, the Volvo EM90 will remain in good condition in China. The Volvo EM90 is equipped with a 116 kW battery. The electric motor has 272 hp. The range is an impressive 738 kilometers. But don't celebrate too early. This is not according to the WLTP cycle usual here, but according to a Chinese measuring method.

Tip

Well insured on the road

Choose the coverage that suits your (electric) car with Interpolis Car Insurance. Standard €0 deductible and free choice of repairs.

The ZEA platform from parent company Geely serves as the basis for the Volvo EM90. Another model that uses this is the more than 5 meter long Zeekr 009. That is also an electric MPV, the most powerful drivetrain of which has a good 500 hp. That leaves the MPV Zeekr Shoot from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. The Volvo EM90 takes a little longer, namely 8.3 seconds.

We find the interior of the Volvo EM90 a lot more pleasant to look at than the outside. This is how we spotted seats that look extremely comfortable. The business class of a Boeing 747 is nothing compared to that. The ones in the second row of seats have a fold-out section where you can rest your lower legs. Each chair has its own armrest and folding table. And whoever sits behind the driver and passenger has their own infotainment screen. The only thing we're missing is someone to bring the drinks.

Volvo says that the Volvo EM90 will be sold 'first' in China. We hope this is a discussion and 'first' should actually be 'alone'.
