Despite less enthusiastic than expected interest in electric vehicles, Swedish automaker Volvo will take the risk of offering a large all-electric sedan to avoid being outdone by the competition (read Mercedes-Benz and BMW) in this niche.

Starting in January 2025, Volvo will produce an all-electric version of its large S90, to be renamed the ES90, to take on the Tesla Model S, Mercedes-Benz EQE and BMW i5. The sedan will be built on the same platform as the Volvo EX90 and Polestar 3, at the Geely plant (owner of the Volvo brand) in Chengdu, China. According to Automotive News, this large car will be marketed (but only in small quantities) in America with one or two engines and a possible range of some 560 kilometres. According to reliable sources, it will be a hatchback that should be more elaborate than the S90, which, in principle, will remain in Volvo’s catalogue.
