Volvo wants to have a full electric range by 2025 and the XC90 couldn’t be missing from it. Thus, it will become the first model to make use of the upgraded architecture SPA. Τhis will allow it to offer a purely electric version, as revealed by Volvo’s chief executive, Hakan Samuelsson.
This version will be added to the range in 2022 as an alternative to plug-in and “mild” hybrid. According to the Swedish company’s planning and commitments, no diesel version is planned. The new XC90 will offer high automated driving capabilities that can even reach full autonomy if regulations allow.

Samuelsson also confirmed the extension of the smaller range with another model to place next to the XC40. At the moment we don’t have a clear picture of the body style volvo has chosen as the new model certainly won’t be related to the XC40, nor will it exactly replace the V40.
