Volvo opens order book for all-new 2015 XC90

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 10, 2014

Volvo Car has started taking orders for all-new Volvo XC90 – its first vehicle produced using new in-house designed and built chassis and engines. Interested buyers who have placed orders from their dealers will also be entertained to become some of the first owners to receive their Volvo XC90. Volvo sold out the XC90 First Edition within 47 hours.

The carmaker is only building 1927 examples, representing the year Volvo was founded -- all in one specification level and in the same exterior color and interior upholstery. The carmaker has received positive and constructive feedbacks from customers who were given a chance to preview the new XC90 and is making a number of changes that buyers could avail of.

For instance, customers from the United Kingdom could avail of the 320hp T6 petrol engine and of the auxiliary heater -- standard on the T8 Twin Engine -- on the D5 engine. The auxiliary heater enables a driver to pre-condition the cabin to a set temperature as the user likes it. Volvo is building the new XC90 on its new SPA chassis.

The vehicle was designed under the supervision of Thomas Ingenlath, showing the new styling direction for future Volvo models. Featuring a new interior and centerpiece as well as tablet-style center touchscreen, the XC90 is powered by Volvo’s new Drive-E engine range.

Interested buyers could choose from an all-wheel-drive (AWD) D5 225hp diesel; an AWD T6 320hp petrol or an AWD T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid.
