Volvo Reveals New S90 Excellence And Announces S90 Production Relocation to China
|   Saturday, November 26, 2016
The Swedish company Volvo has officially presented the elongated wheelbase version of the sedan Volvo S90 and luxury version called Volvo S90 Excellence. Presentation of the cars took place in Shanghai and the public premiere will be held at the Guangzhou International Motor Show, starting November 19th.

The Volvo S90 LWB sedan has an elongated wheelbase compared to an ordinary sedan whose total size reaches 3,061 mm. However, the car's length increased by 120 mm and is equal to 5,083 mm.
Width and height indicators have not changed however.

The car will be offered on the Chinese market with two engines with a displacement of two liters: T4 (211 hp) and T5 (282 hp).
Those who love true luxury will have to be watchful for the premium version of the car described above - Volvo S90 Excellence. In the construction of this car the Lounge Console concept has been implemented, which the Swedish manufacturer showed last year.

The Volvo S90 Excellence sedan is deprived of a seat, more precisely the right driver's seat. In its place is installed a special console which, if necessary, can be transformed into a mobile work station or cinema screen.

Among other features available on the Volvo S90 Excellence we find a panoramic roof, seats with massage function, cupholders with heating or cooling function, and much more.

“The most luxurious sedan in the world”, as Volvo calls it, will be offered to customers with the hybrid engine version T8 Twin Engine too. In the composition of the propulsion unit we get a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a displacement of 2.0 liters (316 hp) and an electric engine with 86 hp.
Volvo S90 LWB and Volvo S90 Excellence will have the semi-autonomous driving system, a system for detecting pedestrians and animals, warning when going out of the roadway, moving traffic control system, a warning system in the event of a frontal collision, multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, adaptive cruise control and the list goes on.

Volvo Cars announced that the S90 LWB will be produced starting November this year. Volvo S90 Excellence will be produced from 2017. Both versions of the car will be available globally.

All versions of the S90 (classical versions, Excellence variant and long-wheelbase version) will be built starting in 2017 at the new plant that Geely, the company which owns Volvo, raised in Daqing, China. Assembled so far at Torslanda, Sweden, the model built by Volvo will migrate gradually starting this year to the Asian production plant.

The decision of Volvo and Geely comes after house analysis showed that the production of the XC90, S90, V90 and V90 Cross Country models - all assembled so far exclusively in the factory near Gothenburg - cannot keep up with the accelerating demand for models in the range, in particular for the XC90 SUV.

The logic of this strategy takes into account two aspects, according to Volvo. First, Volvo wants a massive increase in sales in China. Although the Swedish brand did not produce any car in China in 2010, the 2020 target holds promising forecasts: 250,000 cars produced by Volvo in China, approximately one third of the total 800,000 cars targeted at the beginning of the next decade.

Secondly, Volvo expects a massive increase in demand for models in the 60 and 40 ranges, with the launch of the new generations that will begin appearing on the market in 2017.
