The XC90 replacement is set to be a significant departure from the past two XC90 generations. It has been developed from the onset as a battery-electric vehicle, or “born electric,”. The XC90 replacement is also expected to become more wagon-like, with its design thought to be heavily influenced by the Concept Recharge unveiled earlier this year. There will be one other major change with the new vehicle. Volvo currently builds the XC90 in Sweden for sale in North America but the replacement will be sourced from Volvo’s plant located near Charleston, South Carolina. The plant is currently churning out the S60 sedan for worldwide sale but from next year will also be responsible for the XC90 replacement and a related Polestar 3.
