Electric Volvo S90 replacement specifications leaked

Details have emerged of Volvo's new flagship electric saloon – a model internally codenamed as the V551, but expected to take the ES90 name when it goes on sale in 2025. The model will be produced at a factory owned and operated by Volvo’s parent company Geely in China, as revealed in a photograph and specifications leaked by the company’s board, beginning in May 2024.

  1. All-electric ES90 sedan to share underpinnings with EX90 SUV
  2. Will come with 111kWh battery pack with up to 600km range
  3. Will rival the likes of Mercedes EQE sedan and BMW i5

A photograph published to Volvo's employee intranet shows members of Volvo’s production team in Zhejiang huddled around signs that read “Volvo Cars V551 First VP Car Celebration” and “Confidential Top Secret". The reference to VP stands for 'Verification Prototype'. The car, however, is completely obscured from view, ahead of an expected unveiling in the coming months.

The luxury four-door sedan is expected to be based on Volvo's SPA2 platform – the same structure that underpins the new EX90 SUV and its Polestar 4 sibling. It accommodates electric drivetrains operating at either 400 or 800 volts.

Specifications leaked by Volvo suggest the ES90 will be sold with the choice of both single-motor rear-wheel drive and dual-motor four-wheel drive configurations. It is also said to use a 111 kWh battery (107 kWh usable), delivering 600km of range in combination with the single-motor, rear-wheel-drive drivetrain.

Leaked specifications also hinted at the size of the upcoming flagship sedan – the ES90 measures 4999mm in length, 1547mm in height and 1945mm in width, and has a wheelbase of 3100mm. Development of the ES90 is understood to have been partly carried out in combination with Geely’s new Galaxy E8 saloon and Zeekr 7 saloon – the latter of which boasts up to 645hp of power and a range of 770km on the Chinese CLTC test cycle in range-topping dual-motor four-wheel drive specification.

The ES90 will be Volvo's fourth born electric car, joining the EX30 crossover, EX90 SUV and EM90 MPV. An electric successor to the XC60 is due in 2025, but no plans have yet been revealed for an electric replacement for the S60 and V60.
