Like any Volvo car, the EM90 is built around a strong safety cage. It is made of various forms of high-strength steel, including boron steel that help offset the impact from a possible crash efficiently. Inside the cabin, airbags are optimally placed to help provide excellent passenger protection. Double A-pillars give the driver a clear field of vision while helping to keep the safety cage strong, providing a sense of comfort, confidence and control behind the steering wheel.
That sense of confidence and control is further amplified by safe space technology; a wide range of safety and advanced driver assistance systems inside the EM90. Enabled by software and a broad sensor set consisting of high-definition cameras, surround view cameras, a millimetre-wave radar, and ultrasonic sensors, Volvo’s advanced driver assistance features give you the support to drive with confidence and help avoid collisions in real-world scenarios.
Naturally, Volvo also focused on safeguarding the battery. As a fully electric MPV, the EM90 is equipped with state-of-the-art battery protection technologies, including a strong structure made of steel and aluminium that enables a safe and stable performance in real-world crash scenarios.
In addition to a high level of safety, Volvo also focused on wellbeing inside the EM90. Volvo’s Scandinavian living room on the move brings you the ultimate comfort and well-being. Thanks to the generous cabin width and legroom, as well as a wide array of smart storage features, the EM90 provides a spacious and clever interior for everyone in the car.
The Volvo EM90 comes with Volvo’s unique air purification technology as standard. Regardless of where you travel, the air you breathe inside the EM90 is set to be cleaner than the air outside. The pre-ionisation and a fibre-based filter in the air purification system can remove up to 95 per cent of all PM 2.5 particulates.
The EM90 is not just a Scandinavian living room on the move, it is also your private mobile concert hall. A total of 21 speakers from Bowers & Wilkins are beautifully integrated around the cabin and built into the headrests of the front-row seats, to deliver high-fidelity audio with 3D sound, and create the ultimate sound experience inside the EM90, supported by 2,460W of power.
“The EM90 is designed to provide comfort and peace of mind in a Scandinavian style,” said Erik Severinson, Volvo’s global head of new car programmes. “It’s a car that sets a new standard for modern luxury – a word that nowadays is often interchangeable with the expression ‘quality of life’. Volvo Cars uniquely positioned to tap into this new mindset. Volvo is from Sweden after all, a place that believes quality of life is as important as being alive.”
