The highly anticipated 2025 Volvo EX90 electric SUV is finally rolling off the production line, but it’s not arriving with all its bells and whistles intact. Volvo has confirmed that some features will be conspicuously absent when customers take delivery of their EX90. Let’s dive into the details:

  1. Delayed Features:
    • Cross-Traffic Alert with Automatic Braking: This safety feature, which warns drivers of approaching vehicles or pedestrians when reversing, won’t be operational initially.
    • Wireless Apple CarPlay: If you were hoping to seamlessly connect your iPhone to the infotainment system, you’ll have to wait for an over-the-air update.
    • Bi-Directional Charging System: The EX90’s ability to send power back to your home or the grid won’t be available right away.
  2. Over-the-Air Updates:
    • Volvo plans to address these missing features through free over-the-air updates. Most of them will become functional without requiring a visit to the dealership.
    • The lidar system will also receive an update to unlock its full potential.
  3. Cabin Quirks:
    • While waiting for wireless Apple CarPlay, you’ll have to make do with the infotainment screen and digital gauge cluster’s dark mode.
    • The Smart Charging program, which optimizes charging times based on pricing and efficiency, will also be delayed.
  4. Battery Drainage:
    • When parked, the EX90 will experience slight battery drainage due to the core computer needing power. Over 24 hours, it’ll lose about three percent of charge.
    • After 72 hours without charging, the car enters a “deep sleep” mode to conserve energy.
  5. Plug & Charge Missing:
    • The convenient “Plug & Charge” feature, which eliminates the need for apps or credit cards at charging stations, won’t be available initially.

Volvo assures customers that these missing features will gradually become accessible, either through updates or dealer visits. So, if you’re an EX90 owner, keep an eye out for those improvements
