Volvo brings the S90 Recharge T8 up-to-date with new exterior and interior finishing

Volvo Car Malaysia brings the S90 Recharge T8 up-to-date with new exterior and interior finishing that complement­s the latest safety and technologi­cal features


DESIGNED TO EMPOWER drivers with state-of-theart luxury, safety and sustainabi­lity, the newly updated premium 4-door, 5-seat flagship sedan is built on the Scalable Product Architectu­re (SPA) platform. Powered by Volvo’s Drive-E powertrain, the S90 Recharge T8 is equipped with a T8 Twin Engine and a rechargeab­le lithium-ion battery capable of producing 407 horsepower and 640Nm of torque.

The combinatio­n of the four-cylinder engine and the vigorous electric motor provides a powerful performanc­e while producing lower CO2 emissions. This powertrain is also featured in all Volvo models built on the SPA, which underpins the 90 and 60 series launched in recent years.

The S90 Recharge T8 carries on the rich legacy of Volvo Cars through the pronounced elegance in Volvo’s design language. This blend of minimalist design and stylistic cues creates a premium image that is accentuate­d

by Volvo’s key aesthetic features, such as the “Thor Hammer” LED headlight design, vertical chrome grille with the Volvo Iron Mark, and a bold and clean use of the

Volvo spreadmark on the rear. The tail lamps have also been updated to now bear a similar design to the recently launched Volvo S60 T8 R-Design, thus marrying luxury with a little sportiness.

The Scandinavi­an motif is also integrated into the cabin - vertical air blades on each side of the Sensus user interface, perforated front seats and sunroof. The Sensus panel ensures that the driver stays connected with intuitive technology and personalis­ed convenienc­e, featuring two USB outlets that allows for both Apple Carplay and Android Auto, for varied compatibil­ity. Equipped with a comprehens­ively upgraded Bowers & Wilkins sound system that consists of a total of 19 speakers with an output of 1,400W, the S90 Recharge T8 provides a truly high-end audio experience.

Additional­ly, the S90 Recharge T8 also comes with a variety of standard Volvo safety features, starting with a chassis made out of boron steel for added body strength. This comes in combinatio­n with Volvo’s Intellisaf­e system, which equips the car with the latest safety technology, such as the Blind Spot Informatio­n Systems (BLIS), City Safety, Cross Traffic Alert, Front and Rear Warning and Mitigation Support, Lane Keeping Aid, Pilot Assist, a 180kmh speed cap and many more.

Priced at RM358,888, the S90 Recharge T8 is now offered at RM339,315 after sales tax exemption (on-the-road, without insurance). It is also available for booking on Volvo Car Malaysia’s website. Customers will have the option to choose from five distinct colours: Bright Silver, Crystal White Pearl, Onyx Black, Platinum Grey and Thunder Grey.
