Volvo Cars starts production of fully electric EX90 SUV

  • last month
We are in a celebratory mood this week, as our factory outside Charleston, South Carolina has now started building our new electric flagship SUV – and the first customer deliveries are scheduled for the second half of this year.

The EX90 not only expands our portfolio of fully electric cars, but also represents a paradigm shift for the company as it is the first Volvo car powered by core computing technology – a technology that enables a new era of safety for our cars.

The first customer-bound EX90 that rolled off the Charleston line was a striking model painted in Denim Blue, destined for a customer in the United States later this year.

Volvo Cars’ first manufacturing plant in the United States opened in the summer of 2018 just outside Charleston, one of the oldest and most storied cities in the country. Today, the Charleston plant produces the EX90 and the S60 sedan, and it has the capacity to build up to 150,000 cars per year.

In recent years, we have made extensive investments in the facility. The body shop and paint shop have been renewed and expanded significantly, while the plant now also has a state-of-the-art battery pack production line.

With these investments, our US production facility is well-prepared for this new era in its still young history and reflects our long-term commitment to South Carolina and the United States where Volvo Cars operates since almost 70 years through a robust network of 281 dealerships across 47 States.
