Friday headlines: Volvo to debut SC-built electric SUV in November

Volvo’s South-Carolina-built EX90, the all-electric successor to its best-selling XC90 sport-utility vehicle, will make its public debut Nov. 9. It will be, its CEO says, the company’s safest vehicle yet.

“The safety standard of our next car will be beyond any Volvo car before,” CEO Jim Rowan said in a recent video.

The EX90 is reportedly the start of Volvo’s transition to all-electric vehicles. The South Carolina plant in Berkeley County is planned to be slated to produce only EVs by 2030.
