The successor of the XC90 has up to 510 horsepower with two electric motors and eAWD and shares a deep connection with the upcoming Polestar 3 as they both share the SPA2 underpinnings. The Volvo EX30 stands at the other side of the range as their smallest offering currently on sale, and the subcompact EV CUV is pretty much revolutionary because of its low asking price and great EV credentials shared with the Smart #1 and Zeekr X vehicles.
It also has a much better name if you ask us. Anyway, the elephant in the EV room is obviously Volvo's first-ever minivan, the 2024 EM90 zero-emissions MPV that is touted for a global debut on November 12. Of course, its reasoning is easy to explain – while minivans are mostly dead all around the world, their last ditch for survival is taking China by storm, so that's where sales also start first.
However, that's all in the real world. Meanwhile, the imaginative realm of digital car content creators is more preoccupied with what comes next rather than right now. And, of course, with the EX30 and EX90 already tipped at both ends of the spectrum, we really need to consider that Volvo will soon offer something in between, too, right?
Well, at least this is the opinion of the good folks over at the AutoYa info channel on YouTube, who have a satellite venue dubbed AutoYa Interior, and that is where all the (CGI) Volvo EV action occurs. Naturally, logic dictates that next in line for membership in the new 'EX' lineup would be the global successor of the best-selling XC60 compact luxury crossover SUV.
Born in 2008 as part of the '60' series alongside the S60 sedan, V60 station wagon, and Cross Country models, Volvo's XC60 quickly became a smashing delivery success throughout just two generations. Sure, it will be hard to part ways with the best-selling nameplate, but Volvo is adamant about its transition to sustainable power, so there is no reason to believe there won't be an EX60 instead of the third-generation XC60.
As per tradition, the channel's resident pixel master not only shows the potentially upcoming Volvo EX60 starting from inside-out but the cockpit is also treated to a fully (unofficial) color palette before the hue reel is also bestowed upon the exterior. So, how do you like it?
