The initial series of 1,927 cars celebrates the year Volvo was founded 87 years ago
Volvo Cars is releasing a limited First Edition of its all-new Volvo XC90, which was launched today in Stockholm. The 1,927 individually numbered cars celebrate the year Volvo was founded and, for the first time in history, they will only be available for order via digital commerce at www.volvocars.com/us.
The online store opens for business on September 3rd at 10:00 am ET.
“Those who want to be among the first ones to own the best SUV in the world have to act fast. The huge interest in the all-new XC90 indicates that the First Edition will sell out quickly,” said Alain Visser, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Service of Volvo Car Group.
The online only First Edition is just one example of Volvo Cars’ revitalized approach to marketing activities and outstanding personal service.
The First Edition cars have uniquely numbered tread plates, a distinctive badge on the tailgate, a leather key fob with the First Edition logo, and are powered by a high-performance gasoline engine from Volvo Cars’ new four-cylinder Drive-E powertrains.
The supercharged and turbocharged T6 AWD has an output of 316 hp and a maximum torque of 295 lb.-ft. The engines are teamed with a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission.
The 4-corner air suspension includes Four-C, an electronically controlled damping system. There is a choice of five modes, including one where the driver is free to tailor the settings to his or her personal taste.
Black exterior and amber leather seats
The Onyx Black exterior and 8-spoke, 21-inch Inscription wheels are combined with an interior featuring supple nappa leather seats in Amber, a Charcoal leather dashboard and Linear Walnut wood inlays.
The power-operated heated front seats are equipped with ventilation. The outer seats in the second row have heating and the two third row seats are power-operated.
The tablet-like touch screen in the center is one of the most striking features in the all-new XC90. It is the heart of the all-new in-car control system that is virtually button free and represents an entirely new way for drivers to operate their car and access a range of Internet-based products and services.
The Bowers & Wilkins audio systems features a 1,400 watts Class D amplifier, 19 speakers, one of the first air-ventilated subwoofers integrated in a car and the latest sound processing software, which brings the emotional experience of a world-class live performance into the car.
Most comprehensive standard safety package
The car offers the most comprehensive and technologically sophisticated standard safety package available in the automotive industry. It includes two world first safety technologies: a run-off road protection feature and auto brake at intersection capability.
City Safety, which becomes the umbrella name for all of the Volvo Cars’ auto brake functions, is also standard. Collision prevention and mitigation is now possible with vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians in front of the car, day or night.
The fully-equipped XC90 T6 AWD First Edition carries a price of $65,900.
