    Nicknamed the "Scandinavian living room on wheels," this electric gem promises to transform the road trip experiences, daily commutes, and perhaps even the look of driveways for Volvo enthusiasts.

    If you're curious about this vehicle but aren't familiar with the details, here's a quick overview of the Volvo electric MPV.

    1. Home Away From Home

    In November, after a series of tantalizing teasers, Volvo peeled back the curtains to reveal the EM90, embodying Volvo CEO Jim Rowan's vision of making a car more than just a vehicle—it's a mobile haven.

    With its design ethos rooted in maximizing onboard time's value and pleasure, the EM90 challenges the age-old cliché of "there's no place like home" by daring to be a close second.

    In essence, the Volvo EM90 is a luxury variant of the Zeekr 009 MPV, with refinements to both its interior and exterior design. While the Zeekr version offers four-wheel drive with a 400 kW output and starts at 500,000 yuan (RM331k), the EM90 is priced significantly higher, offering a different value proposition to its customers.

    Its electric powertrain consists of a 200-kW motor at the rear, fueled by a 116-kWh battery, delivering a range of 738 km according to the CLTC standard. In China, the EM90 is priced at 818,000 yuan (RM542k).

    2. The Ultimate Comfort Machine

    Volvo's meticulous crafting of the EM90's interior isn't just about luxury; it's about creating a space that adapts to its occupants' needs, whether for work, relaxation, or entertainment.

    The dimensions of the EM90 are 5206/2024/1859 mm, featuring a 3205 mm wheelbase. It can accommodate six passengers in a 2+2+2 seating arrangement.

    Imagine premium lounge seating that wouldn't be out of place in an upscale cinema, complete with massage functions and rear cupholders.

    A fold-out table transforms the space into anything from a business boardroom to a cozy dining spot. And with a massive 15.6″ rear screen that elegantly unfolds at the touch of a button, the EM90 can switch from a mobile office to a movie theater—or even a bedroom—faster than you can say "Scandinavian design."

    3. Smart Storage and Spaciousness

    In creating the EM90, Volvo didn't just aim for luxury; they engineered smart. The minivan boasts ingenious storage solutions that open up a cabin so spacious, you'd be forgiven for thinking you're in a rolling ballroom. The attention to providing ample head and leg room means that every journey is a first-class experience, whether you're navigating the urban jungle or cruising the countryside.

    4. Tech at Your Fingertips

    Front and center in the EM90's minimalist cockpit is an additional 15.6″ infotainment screen, the command center for the vehicle's advanced software and features, including the Snapdragon Cockpit Platforms from Qualcomm. This technology suite transforms the driving experience, offering everything from navigation to entertainment with seamless, intuitive interactions.

    5. Powering Your Journey

    Beneath its stylish exterior, the EM90 is a beast of efficiency and performance. Riding on Geely’s SEA platform—which also underpins notable models like the Polestar 4 and Lotus Eletre—the EM90 is equipped with a 272 PS and 343Nm rated RWD electric motor and it can complete the 0-100 km/h run in 8.3 seconds. The electric motor paired with a 116 kW battery.

    This powertrain promises an impressive CLTC range of up to 738 km, ensuring that your adventures are as extended as they are exhilarating. And with signature Volvo design cues like the Thor Hammer headlights and an illuminated logo, the EM90 stands out for all the right reasons.

    For Malaysians, who love MPVs, the EM90 offers a tantalizing mix of innovation, luxury, and 'green-ness'—a combination that's hard to resist for those interested in EVs.

    Volvo Ex90

    Originally, Volvo had planned to debut the EX90 as their premier electric vehicle (EV) release for 2024. However, due to unforeseen delays in its production, this plan has been adjusted. Now, it appears increasingly likely that the EX90 will take place of the EM90 and perhaps make a grand entrance later in the year.

    Volvo EX30 Malaysia

    This adjustment paves the way for the EX30 first , another pivotal addition to Volvo's lineup, to take the lead. The EX30 is poised to be Volvo's most accessible EV yet, targeting both the younger demographic and budget-minded consumers with its affordable pricing and youthful design.
