Volvo claims that the streamlined design of the upcoming EX90 electric SUV with its sleek and rounded front, combined with elements such as flush front grille and door handles, ensures that air flows uninterrupted towards the rear. This states Volvo has ensured that the upcoming EX90 has a coefficient of drag of just 0.29 - a number considered to be very competitive number for a large, 7-seater SUV.

Speaking about the exterior design of the upcoming EX90, T. Jon Mayer, the head of Exterior Design at Volvo said, "We've taken inspiration from yacht design to outline the Volvo EX90's beautiful and sleek proportions. If you look at the front, it's proud and confident - inspired by a sailboat's ability to shear through the ocean's slamming waves. But it's also rounder overall, which enables the air to flow around the car more efficiently."

As always, the Scandinavian automaker's designers have ensured that practicality and safety don't get in the way of aesthetics. This is best seen with the Lidar sensor that has been integrated into the roof section of the electric SUV. The Volvo EX90 will be the first vehicle from Gothenburg-based carmaker to be offered with Lidar as standard equipment which will help with the electric SUV's autonomous driving capabilities.
