Volvo Harnesses Power Of The Sun For The EX90's Interior Lighting

You’ve slept through your alarm. The birds aren’t yet chirping, the neighborhood is still, and the pitch-black morning hardly beckons you to start the day. But as you step inside your car, a hint of sunshine greets you, turning an everyday commute into a ritual that lights up your day. Literally. In its new EX90 SUV, Volvo will use near-sunlight levels of interior illumination using 72 SunLike LEDs.

Volvo says its designers set out to enhance the occupant’s connection with nature, whether it’s day or night. Thus, the SunLike LEDs, supplied by Seoul Semiconductor, enables a more natural color expression beyond what’s achievable with conventional LEDs. In addition, the non-flickering LED system delivers low light reflection and a high color index helping minimize color distortion. SunLike LEDs also provide natural comfort to all occupants by suppressing blue light. Together with the non-flickering light, it reduces eyestrain and headaches associated with such exposure.

The SunLike LEDs complement the EX90’s panoramic sunroof and open cabin design as well as the use of wood deco and other natural materials central to the Scandinavian design language.

While SunLike lights are already used to bring natural light to interior spaces in residential places, hospitals, schools, museums and horticultural applications, Volvo Cars is the first to use them in production vehicles starting with the Polestar 3, and now, the EX90.

All non-decorative lights in the Volvo EX90 interior—whether placed on the ceiling, floor, door pocket or boot—come with SunLike LEDs as standard.

Volvo Cars Philippines says the EX90 is coming, but no time frame has been given as of yet. The Swedish luxury carmaker plans to introduce a bevy of EVs soon starting with the C40 by the third quarter of 2023.

  1. That lighting is stunning! It absolutely makes a difference. I wonder how it would be like looking in from the outside. It could be so bright that people could see what's inside.
