Volvo announced that the interior of its upcoming flagship all-electric sport utility vehicle (SUV) will feature materials made with sustainability in mind. Called the Nordico, the progressive material reflects a contemporary expression of Scandinavian values and sets a new standard for premium interior design.


  • What does Volvo Cars call the new sustainable material used in the interior of the EX90 EV SUV?

    The new sustainable material used in the interior of the Volvo EX90 EV SUV is Nordico.
  • When will Volvo Cars reveal the EX90 EV SUV?

    The Volvo EX90 EV SUV will be revealed on November 9, 2022.
  • “We’ve chosen materials based on our values. These choices leave behind old-fashioned automotive luxury and express our Scandinavian foundations. With the Volvo EX90 we take customer well-being as a design starting point,” said Volvo Cars Senior Design Manager Cecilia Stark.

    Nordico is created from textiles made from recycled material such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, as well as bio-attributed material from responsibly managed forests in Sweden and Finland.

    Speaking of forests, inside the Volvo EX90 are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wood panels around the cabin. They feature warm light that creates a Scandinavian living room atmosphere and evokes the Nordic wilderness.

    The Volvo EX90 will also offer customers the option of a wool blend seat finishing, a fabric certified according to strict sustainability standards on animal welfare, environmental, and social issues.

    In line with the Swedish automaker’s ambitions in circularity, the Volvo EX90 also contains more recycled plastics in order to use less finite, primary resources. In addition to the recycled PET bottles, the Volvo EX90 consists of almost 50 kilograms (kg) of recycled plastics and bio-based materials. That’s the highest amount of non-primary fossil-based materials in the brand’s line-up and sets a new bar for the future.

    The carpets also embrace the concept of circularity, partly consisting of regenerated polyamide.

    “The interior design and composition of the Volvo EX90 continues decades of iteration and innovation. We see interior composition as a learning process that will continue over time based on your feedback, in-house innovation, and new responsible sourcing opportunities,” Stark added.

    The new, all-electric Volvo EX90 will be revealed on November 9, 2022.
