It seems the pre-booking amount is Rs 5 lakhs. Delivery in the November'16 timeframe. But they don't have a sample car to look at or to test drive yet. Apparently that will only come in end September or so. To book or not to book - that is the question.

What all engine variants are they taking the booking for?
D4 and D5?
Is pre- booking open for T6 and T8 too?

I plan to visit the showroom this weekend. Will find out. Unfortunately they don't have a test vehicle or even one on static display.

I'll just leave these pictures shared in our Volvo Owners Whatsapp group here just as a motivation for your extra effort through the weekend.
The pictures are from a showroom in gulf and the car is LHD of course.
But it's a work of art and a beauty to behold.

However, thanks again for taking your time out and investigating on behalf of all of us here

Right now pre-bookings are only for the D4 version - 190bhp - Inscription interiors version. No D5 for now. Also only the diesel engine will come this year. No news at the dealer level of the hybrid or the petrol. Dealer felt they hybrid may not come at all. Sad, if true. Thus far training imparted only for D4 diesel. Hope this helps. I am quite clear that the next sedan we buy has to be a plug-in hybrid or an all electric if that ever becomes available in the next 2 years.

Default Volvo S 90 Launch on 4th November

As an existing V40 owner got a launch invite from KIFS Motors, Mumbai that the S90 is scheduled to be launched 4th November.


Quote:
Dear Sir/Ma'am,

Greetings from KIFS Volvo Cars !

Please allow us to share some great news with you. We at Volvo Cars are planning the launch of the all new S90 in India. The concept that we have for this is a fashion show with one of India’s Top Designers.

The Fashion Show is being planned at one of Mumbai's leading 5 star properties. It would be our privilege and pleasure to invite you for the same.

May we request you to kindly block the date and confirm your participation.

This car is Volvo's ticket to the mid-size luxury sedan segment. It is built on the company's latest design language, and thus shares various design cues with its crossover sibling - the XC90. The front fascia of the Volvo S90 gets a vertically slated, long grille, which is surrounded by a pair of headlamps that feature Volvo's characteristic Thor hammer DRLs. A long front bonnet, sleek fog lamps, and a slim horizontal air-dam constitute the other design elements of the S90. The sedan has a prominent shoulder line runs along the length of the car, just below the chrome window lining. The rear end constitutes large, C-shaped LED taillights, dual exhaust tips, and the Volvo badge on the boot lid.

I wonder if it would make sense to buy the car in black, and then mask those boot lights (only the ones on the trunk) in dark film.

The taillights are not the problem IMO. Its those horrendous boot extensions that make the rear look so ugly - like a garish early 1990's design.

Review are out, here is one from CnB,

-With over 250 pre-bookings, the S90 has already surpassed Volvo India's expectations

What India gets is the diesel D4 variant with a sub-2 litre engine. It's 1969cc to be precise. The small 4 cylinder engine produces 190bhp and the 8-speed automatic gearbox makes sure all this power is seamlessly transferred to the wheels. There's an initial lag in power delivery, but when it hits the 2000rpm mark, the 400Nm of torque comes into play and then it's smooth and in some cases spirited sailing. It's a well-insulated cabin and none of the engine noise punctures inside, in fact you have to remind yourself that it's not petrol, but rather a diesel engine in there.

Quote:
When asked, if a petrol variant was in the offing, the folks at Volvo said that we'd rather bring in a plug-in hybrid than just a petrol and that makes a lot of sense, considering the response the company has got for the plug-in hybrid version of the XC90!
