The Volvo XC90 Excellence Lounge Console takes executive in-car luxury to a whole new level. It offers busy chauffeur-driven business people the ultimate executive accessory – a compact and versatile solution to expand storage and comfort. The Lounge Console replaces the front passenger seat, providing a wealth of functions and amenities.
The Lounge Console incorporates features designed to enhance the in-car experience. The designers at Volvo Cars have provided a large work table which opens to reveal an illuminated vanity mirror, including a storage tray for jewellery and personal accessories or make-up.
The table rotates 90 degrees and simultaneously powers forward to display a 17-inch media screen for an in-car theatre-like experience. Below the cushioned leg rest is an additional area for shoes. For added security, Volvo Cars have included a lockable storage box as well. The removal of the front passenger seat allows for full forward vision creating a uniquely spacious environment.
This model is specially created for people who are on the move and have a hectic lifestyle going from event to event or meeting to meeting and need some space, some luxury time, and the opportunity to relax and refresh themselves for the next engagement. This is ultimately what the Lounge Console is designed to facilitate.
A pop-up screen which is located between the rear seats is used to operate massage, ventilation and heating & cooling functions. This special edition is also offered with an exclusive set of crystal glasses along with special champagne flute holders. There is also a refrigerator between the seats and pop-out tray tables in the centre armrest. The luxury SUV also offers a high end 20 speakers, 1400 watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system.
Powering the Volvo XC90 Excellence Lounge Console is T8 Twin Engine hybrid system. The 2.0-litre turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine produces 320 PS power and powers the front wheels while the electric motor churns out 87 PS and turns the rear wheels. Both system together generates 407 PS and 640 Nm. Transmission duty is done via an 8-speed automatic unit.
