The Volvo S90 L has been unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China. The S90 L is the long-wheelbase variant of the Volvo S90 sedan. The S90 L is manufactured in the city of Daqing in northeastern China. It will launch on the Chinese car market this month. Export to the United States and Europe will start in the second half of 2017.
Wheelbase of the S90 L has been extended with 12 centimeters compared to the standard S90. All the extra space goes to the passengers in the rear. In China the S90 L competes with other locally made long-wheelbase cars such as the Audi A6L, the BMW 5Li, the Jaguar XFL, and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class L. But Volvo has something that none of the others has: a three-seater.

The new Volvo S90 Long-wheelbase has debuted in China, it will be launched on the Chinese auto market on December 15. Public debut is scheduled for 19 November on the Guangzhou Auto Show. First a bit fuss about the name: it is not called the S90L, like the S80L, or the S60L, or the Audi A6L, or Mecedes C-Class L, or Jaguar XF-L, or you name it L. Instead, it is called S90 Long-wheelbase (S90 长轴距). On earlier py shots we clearly saw a S90L badge, but the L has been dropped.

The S90L is expected to launch in China in late 2015.

At the same time Volvo is developing the full size Volvo S100, which will compete with the A8, 7-Series, and S-Class. Design will be based on the Volvo Concept Universe that debuted on the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show. The S100 will debut sometime around 2018.
