Volvo has the new generation of the Volvo XC90 2023 Electric ready and it could be the New EXC90
This is the New Volvo XC90 2023 Electric. New renderings shared on the Worldscoop forums claim to show off the upcoming Volvo XC90. They appear to be patent images, although we were unable to confirm a specific source. However, the plot thickens a bit as we come across a recent Volvo trademark application for the Volvo EXC90 name. Is it just a coincidence that images and a name appeared at the same time?
We know Volvo is going fully electric. An Electric successor to the XC90 has already been confirmed, and Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson confirmed last year that its name will start with a vowel. At the time, we speculated that it might be called Embla, as it was a trademark Volvo was protecting that name. Obviously simply adding an E to the XC90 family moniker also meets the criteria, so it all seems pretty straightforward. This vehicle could be the fully electric Volvo EXC90.
We say that because this could also be a facelifted XC90 with its current hybrid powertrain. In February 2022, Samuelsson stated that the XC90 would remain in production and be sold alongside the next-generation Electric Vehicle, at least for a while. Furthermore, the CEO said that the 2023 Volvo XC90 would receive updated styling. The renderings here are certainly identifiable as an XC90, especially in profile.
However, we suspect that this is in fact the electric model. Up front, we see slim headlamps with vertically oriented corner vents in the fascia, flanking a stout grille. The lack of detail in the grill could simply be down to the basic nature of the renderings, but things are more convincing at the rear. The new taillight design is quite similar to the company’s Recharge concept, a vehicle that “represents a manifesto for Volvo’s all-electric future,” according to the automaker. There is also no indication of exhaust outlets anywhere on the lower rear fascia.
With these alleged patent images and a confirmed EXC90 trademark, could an official debut be just around the corner? Last year, Volvo said that the electric successor to the XC90 would arrive in 2022. Supply chain problems have caused delays with nearly every carmaker on the planet, but Volvo still has nearly half a year to meet the deadline. of 2022. OK
