Volvo has initiated the teasing campaign for the upcoming V90 wagon set to be fully revealed on February 18.
The teaser is a little bit different than what we are used to as it does not show the car at all. Instead, Volvo is providing a short history lesson by showcasing some of the most important wagons the company has released in more than six decades. During this time, the automaker managed to shift more than six million wagons which represents about a third of the company’s total sales since Volvo was founded back in 1927.
Important wagons to wear Volvo’s logo and mentioned in the press release include the 1953 Duett, 1962 Amazon, 1971 1800 ES, 1974 245, 1990 960, and the punchy 1994 850 T5-R limited edition. The latter was available only for the 1994 model year and came with a 240-hp engine granting a sprint to 62 miles (100 kilometers) per hour in 6.9 seconds.
Fast forward to today, the V90 will obviously be a wagon version of the recently introduced S90 midsize sedan. The car’s design is no longer a secret as revealing images of a prototype have already surfaced the web. Moreover, multiple official scale models have shown Volvo has created a really attractive wagon that will be a breath of fresh air in the midsize segment.
The engine lineup will be carried over from the S90, so expect an array of four-cylinder engines, including a hybridized 410-hp turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter in the flagship T8. A high-performance V90 will follow and it will be tweaked by Polestar.
Until then, the standard Volvo V90 will be revealed in Stockholm on February 18 and will also be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show early March.
