The Volvo EX90 will be officially unveiled on 9 November, but the brand has already given details about it.
It looks like Volvo is going to keep us on our toes until 9 November, when it will officially unveil the Volvo EX90, its next 100% electric SUV that will replace the current Volvo XC90.
Just a few days ago we were able to see and know some details of the interior of the Volvo EX90 through two subtle photos provided by the brand, and days before we also learned that the Volvo EX90 will feature two-way charging technology and today the brand has gone a step further and has shown us what its operating system will be like.
Volvo has opted (like Polestar) to integrate Android Automotive as its operating system, which gives the vehicle a large number of functionalities and options already created.
In addition, Volvo has also shown how its screens will be laid out. The brand has opted for a small screen located behind the steering wheel that will provide the basic information necessary for the driver and another screen placed vertically in the central part of the dashboard. This screen is where all the vehicle’s options such as navigation, telephone, music, etc., can be managed.
Simplicity and ease of use will be the DNA of the Volvo EX90’s operating system.
The Swedish brand has always placed great emphasis on safety, and the integration of the operating system in the new Volvo EX90 also reflects this characteristic feature.
Volvo has sought to make the interface and the information provided as simple and easy as possible so that the driver does not get distracted when looking up information about the car.
Head of UX at Volvo Cars, Thomas Stovicek had this to say:
“It’s about giving you the right information at the right time. We want your driving experience to be focused, simple and safe. Because the car also understands your environment and you better than ever before, we can create an even safer situation by reducing mode confusion, distraction and information overload”.
Volvo wants the user to have the information needed for each moment and circumstance and not “bog down” the driver with too much information that is not useful at the time, so the information displayed and available on the car’s screens will be variable depending on each situation.
Volvo has shown this in the following video, which you can see below.
