Volvo Car USA revealed that it has priced the S90 T5 Momentum starting at $46,950. This has been the company’s widely-celebrated S90 luxury sedan and orders are currently being accepted at authorized Volvo retailers and on the web at volvocars.com/us.
Powering the S90 T5 is the turbo-charged T5 Drive-E engine that delivers 250 horsepower of output. While it comes with the standard rich leather interior, it has the Sensus 9-inch touchscreen and the “Thor’s Hammer” LED headlights.
The company has also priced the S90 T6 AWD Momentum beginning at $52,950. Its super-charged and turbo-charged T6 Drive-E engine is paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission and along with the all-wheel drive delivers 316 horsepower.
Though it has the standard features seen on the T5, the T6 has additional ones like the dual integrated tailpipes, driver information display area that is larger, and heated front seats. The Volvo S90 will be equipped with the Semi-Autonomous driving technology, the first car to have such a feature in the U.S.
It even has the Volvo Pilot Assist which enables the car to slow down, speed up, brake, and steer even when running at speeds of at most 80 mph. It comes with two new safety technologies as standard -- also a first for the model.
The first one is the Large Animal Detection that is fitted with auto-brakes that automatically stops the vehicle the system detects elk, deer, and other animals, in order to mitigate or even avoid any collisions.
The second safety feature is the Run-Off Road Mitigation which senses if the car is going off the road and if it does, slowly steers it in order to avoid the car from even leaving the pavement. While the Volvo XC90 SUV already have connectivity, interior luxury, and safety that customers love, the inclusion of this particular technology makes customers enjoy this award-winning vehicle even more.
Aside from the S90, the company is also launching the Volvo Concierge. Using the Volvo website, the Concierge allows for a more personalized buying experience online. Through this, customers will be able to purchase the S90 online aside from going to a Volvo Dealership.
Volvo Concierge will therefore give unparalleled levels of online services and provide comfort during the purchase process. An assigned Volvo representative will help customers learn all about the options available on the S90 and even offer them a chance to change their preferences even before the car is actually made. Even after buying a S90, the Volvo Concierge will remain to be in contact with the new owner.
They will be notified if their car has already been released from Sweden and even when it is supposed to arrive. Once the S90 is delivers, the different settings, like the software apps and radio stations, can be set-up to match the needs of the new owners.
All cars bought through the Volvo Concierge will be sent to the Volvo retailer chosen by the customer. For any questions or to know additional information, customers can communicate with the Volvo Concierge either through phone calls, email, or online chat. Volvo Car USA President and CEO Lex Kerssemakers shares that the company wants to ensure that there was a more personalized online experience considering that buying a car is not a simple online purchase.
Kerssemakers adds that luxury customers will also prefer to have a personal contact that would help them be familiar with the process and the different options available. Using customer feedback obtained from prior e-commerce solutions, he continues, the company developed the Volvo Concierge around this in order to meet the needs of the customers and provide an excellent complement to the company’s retail experience.
Volvo Concierge can be accessed through www.volvocars.com/us/cars/new-models/s90/order-yours. Both the S90 T5 and S90 T6 will be at retailers beginning summer, with the T8 plug-in hybrid following shortly.
