Volvo EM90: The design of the electric luxury minivan has been revealed
The EM90, Volvo's first minivan model, was approved by MIIT before going on sale in China. Pictures showing the exterior design of the vehicle were published on MIIT's website. The Volvo EM90 bears great similarities to the Zeekr 009 model, but has a new front end designed to be compatible with Volvo's other models.

Additionally, the headlights of the vehicle have a different design. The Volvo EM90 bears great similarities to the Zeekr 009 model, with the location of all pillars, side mirrors, door handles and fender cameras being the same.
Volvo EM90 will be released as an electric minivan. It's listed on MIIT's website with a 200-kilowatt, 268-horsepower electric motor. However, the Zeekr 009 model also has a 536 horsepower version with a dual-motor four-wheel drive system. This version can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just four and a half seconds.
The battery capacity of the Volvo EM90 has not yet been announced, but the Zeekr 009 model uses lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt batteries produced by CATL. These batteries can offer a range of 140 kilometers with a 822 kWh battery and 116 kilometers with a 702 kWh battery.
