Volvo S90 Excellence limited edition

Volvo S90 Excellence

Volvo’s S90 Excellence does away with front passenger seat to make space for a shoe closet.

Swedish-carmaker Volvo has revealed its S90 Excellence, the ultimate chauffeur car.

The Chinese-made long-wheel-base sedan eliminates the front passenger seat to make way for a shoe cabinet and adjustable footrest. Above it is a touchscreen holder and entertainment system for the rear passenger.

Volvo calls the space a “Lounge Console” created to allow passengers to relax and work while being driven around busy cities.

“The first thing you notice in the S90 Excellence is that we have removed the front passenger seat and replaced with what we call the Lounge Console, designed to meet the chauffeur-driven executive customers’ need to relax and work while on the move,” said Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Car Group, Thomas Ingenlath.

Whacky interior design aside, the S90 Excellence will also feature a panoramic roof, foldout worktables, heated and cooled cup holders and built-in refrigeration compartment.

Keeping with the theme of “high quality materials” and “immersive luxury feel” are some hand-made crystal glasses made by Orrefors.

As we’d expect of Volvo, it’ll feature a host of safety feature, including the brand’s Pilot Assist, which works up to 120km/h.

The Excellence will, however, do away with the three-engine options of the Volvo S90, and instead only be available with Volvo’s T8 Twin-Engine powertrain option.

Given the S90 Excellence’s is targeted at executives-types in cities like Beijing, it also includes a CleanZone air filtration system to filter toxic pollutants and keep in-cabin air pure.

The S90 Excellence will be built alongside the S90 sedan in Volvo’s production facility in Daqing, China, and will be the most premium car ever made in the country.

Production for the limited edition limo starts this month and it’s expected to go on sale early next year.
