The launches of the Volvo EX90 and Polestar 3 SUVs have been delayed due to software issues

The launches of the Volvo EX90 and Polestar 3 electric SUVs have been delayed due to software issues, but details remain unknown.

Volvo officially announces that it will delay the launch of the new all-electric SUV EX90 due to some problems on the software side of the new model. Polestar suffers from the same problem, with the Volvo parent company announcing that the launch of the new Polestar 3 will also be delayed.

In a brief press release, Volvo said it needed more time to develop and test the software to “ensure a high-quality introduction of the car and maximize customer benefits from its technology from first day”.

Volvo said production of the EX90 is expected to begin in the first half of 2024, instead of late 2023 as previously expected. Meanwhile, the Polestar 3 is expected to start rolling off the assembly line in the first quarter of 2024 instead of August 2023 as previously planned, according to Autonews.

The Volvo EX90 and Polestar 3 were delayed due to software issues

“Polestar has recently been informed that additional time is needed for the final software development of the new electric platform shared with Volvo,” the automaker said in a statement, adding that the delay would affect 2023 production targets.

Polestar expects to build between 60,000-70,000 vehicles in 2023, instead of the 80,000 it had predicted at the start of the year. Lowering its sales estimates will give it the opportunity to “maintain the right balance between the volume we’re getting and what we’re getting in terms of margins and price stability,” CEO Thomas Ingenlath told Autonews.

Volvo has not said what exactly is causing the software problems that have led to the delay of the launch of the two new SUVs. Not exactly the best for future Volvo EX90 customers. Even though production has not yet started, the electric SUV has a lot of orders, which is why the company has closed the list.
