Well, first of all, Volvo officially confirmed that the third generation of XC90 will be built on a brand new South Carolina based plant in the United States. Buried in the media communication about the new factory, Volvo stated that: ‘ From 2021, the [Charleston, SC] Factory will also build the next generation of the big Premium Volvo XC90 SUV.
Yet seamlessly sailed for Volvo considering that earlier this year a XC90 was involved in a fatal accident in Tempe, Arizona. That being said, the Aptiv part of the maker provided by SUV and radar cameras said the technology was innocent because the vehicle’s standard collision avoidance was inactive at the time of the incident.
Getting back to 2021 XC90, the green-determined new Highway assists will rely on cloud-based information rather than on vehicle-to-infrastructure communication systems. Needless to say, Volvo will be in contact with regulators in the United States to obtain a mandatory stamp of approval to advance its own driving technology.
To better understand what level 4 autonomous driving systems imply, it refers to a car that can complete the entire journey without human intervention.

Level 5 is the ultimate goal: no steering, no pedals-by car doing all the work.

2021 Volvo XC90 Interior
The Interior of the All-new 2021 Volvo XC90 will introduce major improvements. The new wool mixture looks perfect and the top Trim level can get a new leather seat.
