Guangzhou: "S90 Long-wheelbase" (S90 长轴距)

Volvo "S90 Long-Wheelbase" to Debut In China

Published on November 2, 2016 by Tycho de Feijter

The new Volvo S90 Long-wheelbase has debuted in China, it will be launched on the Chinese auto market on December 15. Public debut is scheduled for 19 November on the Guangzhou Auto Show. First a bit fuss about the name: it is not called the S90L, like the S80L, or the S60L, or the Audi A6L, or Mecedes C-Class L, or Jaguar XF-L, or you name it L. Instead, it is called S90 Long-wheelbase (S90 长轴距). On earlier py shots we clearly saw a S90L badge, but the L has been dropped.

Why Volvo has decided to go for such a different name is yet unsure. We will try to find out...
...The S90 Long-wheelbase is made in China and will be exported to Europe and the United States starting late next year.

The wheelbase of the S90 Long-wheelbase has been extend with 12 centimeter(s = 4 inches). Size is now 5083/1879/1450, and wheelbase is 3061...
...The 'Excellence', shown here...

...It is no longer a concept but the real thing, buyers can order it in their S90 Long-wheelbase. The front-passenger seat has been deleted and replaced with a ‘lounge console’, including a large foot rest...a tray table, and a flat screen...
...Loads of leg room and Nappa leather seats. Full size panoramic roof will see the sun reflect in the screen.
The glasses can be heated or cooled...
...And when he is done ... our CEO can get back to work, using the on board keyboard to type some business plans....

The Continental looks more spacious and comfortable than the Volvo. Especially since the Continental can offer seating for 3 at the rear, while the Volvo is limited to 2. Along with the Volvo seems to have very short seat bottoms. But I do like the option to remove the passenger front seat to allow for a viewing/foot system for the rear passenger. But can't help but feel it would be cramped with the big immovable center console in the Volvo.

A LWB Continental will be announced soon as well, btw. As for the American market, I'm not sure. But it's headed for the Chinese market. I was told it was an 8" lengthening, but idk how true that part is.
