The company Volvo is developing a large crossover XC90 third generation. As a spokesman for the Swedish brand the car will be built on a new SPA2 platform. According to him, the premiere of the car will take place in 2021.

All other technical characteristics of the novelty are kept secret. Earlier it was reported that the next XC90 will be equipped with a fourth-level autonomous control system. This technology provides a completely autonomous movement from one place to another without the participation of a driver who can deal with extraneous matters. At the same time, the car will have external controls, which will allow you to independently control the crossover.

At the moment, Volvo cars are optionally equipped with a semi-automatic control system Pilot Assist, capable of holding the car on the occupied lane at speeds up to 130 km per hour.

The current generation Volvo XC90 was introduced in 2014 in Paris. The car is built on a modular PA platform. Thanks to the new chassis, the car became much lighter than its predecessor. This affected both the controllability and the economy of the crossover.

In early July, Volvo announced the launch of orders for the XC90 SUV with a hybrid powerplant with the ability to recharge batteries from household electricity.

The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine is equipped with a combined power plant consisting of a 320-horsepower supercharged two-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor of 87 horsepower. In total, the aggregates produce 420 hp and 670 Nm of torque.
