The Volvo S90 saloon is expected to be replaced with a new electric flagship launching in 2025, likely to be called the ES90.

Known internally at the Swedish car maker under the codename V551, production is set to take place at a factory owned and operated by Volvo’s parent company Geely in China, as revealed in a photograph and specifications leaked by the company’s board.

A photograph published to Volvo's employee intranet shows members of Volvo’s production team in Zhejiang huddled around signs that read “Volvo Cars V551 First VP Car Celebration” and “Confidential Top Secret". The reference to VP stands for 'Verification Prototype'.

The luxury four-door is expected to be based on Volvo's SPA2 platform – the same structure that underpins the new EX90 SUV and its Polestar 4 sibling. It accommodates electric drivetrains operating at either 400 or 800 volts.
