Volvo unveiled its flagship electric SUV in 2022, deemed “the safest vehicle it has ever produced.”

Although production was initially scheduled to begin at its plant outside Charleston, South Carolina, before the end of 2023, it was pushed back to ensure the model was up to standard.

Despite the delay, Volvo is making good on its promise of launching US production in mid-2024.

Volvo announced its first EX90 rolled off the assembly line in South Carolina Wednesday. The US-made electric SUV represents a “paradigm shift” for the Volvo brand with new tech, safety, and style.

“The fully electric Volvo EX90 is the start of a new era for Volvo Cars – a new era for safety, sustainability and human-centric technology,” CEO Jim Rowan said at the event.

Volvo said the first customer deliveries are scheduled for the second half of the year. The electric SUV “reaffirms our position as a leader in the ongoing technology shift in the car industry,” according to Volvo.
