About one month after Volvo presented images and videos of the all-new Volvo S90, which will be available in plug-in hybrid version as the S90 T8 Twin Engine, TeknikensVarld.se spied the new V90 wagon.

Volvo V90 T8 Twin Engine is expected to debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March and go on sale in the second half of the year.

While the front and most of the V90 estate is similar to S90 saloon, the rear is redesigned.

T8 Twin Engine is using the same plug-in hybrid drive (laddhybriddrivlina in Swedish) as the S90 and XC90.

    The estates are almost always more sexier. Even that C30 – a micro-estate in reality – looked enticing for something so simple.

    Sorry to see the aero nose go.
    Where is Volvo made these days?

    1. ModernMarvelFan says:

      Depending on the model.

      Mostly Sweden. There is a Volvo plant in the US now. S60L will be built in China for Chinese luxury market.

      But most of it are still built in Sweden and designed by Swedish engineers. Volvo is still a Sweden based company which is owned by a Chinese automaker Geely.

      Car fascias are never going to be the same with the European pedestrian safety regs the way they are now. You will never see anything like a BMW 850Ci again, for example.

    Sweden with a lot of assembly in China, among other places that will soon include the US. I actually like the direction Volvo is taking. Swedish engineers working for Chinese management seems to be a great combination.

    Wow, I am super disappointed in how the rear looks on the new models. Last year’s model was 10/10. These models just look retarded from the rear… :/
