A Volvo representative has disclosed plans to launch a V90 wagon based on the upcoming flagship S90 sedan.

Great news coming from Sweden where Volvo's head of the large cars division Dennis Nobelius said the already confirmed S80 replacement called S90 is going to serve as a foundation for a large wagon set to be commercialized with the V90 moniker. According to Digital Trends, the styling is going to be a "near carbon copy" of the beautiful Concept Estate unveiled back in March this year at the Geneva Motor Show.

Taking into account the China-built S90 is expected to come out in 2016, chances are its more practical sibling won't be introduced sooner than 2017. The engines for both cars will be sourced from the second generation XC90 and most likely the V90 will also be built in China alongside the S90. The cars will ride on the SPA platform and are likely to share the T-shaped LED daytime running lights along with a luxurious interior cabin packing a large touchscreen display, digital instrument cluster, wood trim and metallic accents.
