Volvo Teases EX90 Cabin, Says It’ll Be “One Of The Most Pleasant Car Interiors On The Market”
“We’ve chosen materials based on our values,” says Cecilia Stark, Senior Design Manager. “These choices leave behind old-fashioned automotive luxury and express our Scandinavian foundations. With the Volvo EX90 we take customer well-being as a design starting point.”
Inside the Volvo EX90 you’ll find a progressive material that we’ve named Nordico.
Nordico is a contemporary expression of Scandinavian values and sets a new standard for premium interior design.
Created from textiles made from recycled material such as PET bottles, as well as bio-attributed material from responsibly-managed forests in Sweden and Finland, Nordico is a progressive and technically advanced material.
Speaking of forests: inside the Volvo EX90 we have FSC™-certified wood panels around the cabin. They’re nicely back-lit with warm light that creates a Scandinavian living room atmosphere and evokes the Nordic wilderness.
The Volvo EX90 also offers you the option of a wool blend seat finishing, a fabric certified according to strict sustainability standards on animal welfare, environmental and social issues.
In line with our ambitions in circularity, the Volvo EX90 also contains more recycled plastics in order to use less finite, primary resources. In addition to the recycled PET bottles, the Volvo EX90 consists of almost 50 kilogrammes of recycled plastics and bio-based materials. That’s the highest amount of non-primary fossil-based materials in our line-up and sets a new bar for the future.
The carpets also embrace the concept of circularity, partly consisting of regenerated polyamide.
The official video below shows parts of the cabin, revealing some of the dashboard’s design, including the sculpted trim around the horizontally-mounted air vents. We also get to see a large-diameter portrait-style infotainment touchscreen with thinner bezels, and some of the fancy new upholstery options.
A personal and distinct ambiance
Taking things beyond materials, the Volvo EX90 also offers you the opportunity to personalise your car’s atmosphere and appearance by choosing between seven different “rooms” that synchronise the interior deco and upholstery with the exterior colours.
Each room, specially created by our designers, provides a different character and offers a distinct ambiance to suit your tastes. And each is inspired by aspects of the Scandinavian lifestyle and its symbiotic relationship with the beautiful nature that surrounds us here in the North.
“The interior design and composition of the Volvo EX90 continues decades of iteration and innovation,” says Cecilia Stark. “We see interior composition as a a learning process that will continue overtime based on your feedback, in-house innovation and new responsible sourcing opportunities.”
The new, all-electric Volvo EX90 will be revealed on November 9.
