The all-new second-generation Volvo XC90 debuted last summer with seating for seven people.
Volvo has now unveiled the most luxurious vehicle ever built by the Swedish company in its 88 year history at the Shanghai International Automobile Show. The model we are talking about is not a successor to the S80, but a refined four-seat version of the recently launched XC90.
The XC90 Excellence is based on the new XC90 and it has just four seats compared to the original’s seven, creating an enormous amount of additional space for rear seat passengers along with extra luxury features.
The spacious individual reclining rear seats come with massage, ventilation and increased leg room. There are also a retractable control touchscreen, folding tables, a refrigerator with bottle and glass holders, a heating/cooling cup holder and handmade crystal glasses from Orrefors.
“This is our new flagship car,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President, Design. “We have created the ultimate luxury experience of Scandinavian design. Volvo has never launched a car like this before. This is the car that demonstrates what the name Volvo now means.”
Other highlights include specially augmented Bowers & Wilkins audio system that adds an extra speaker to its 19 speaker system for even resulting better sound reproduction and surround effect in the rear seats.
So far over 24,000 units of the XC90 have been ordered and that’s before it has even reached Volvo showrooms.
The XC90 Excellence pricing will be announced closer to market launch and it will available globally later this year.
