Volvo is working on a new large sedan exclusively for the Chinese car market called the Volvo S90L. The S90 is basically a stretched variant of the generation Volvo S80, which is based on Volvo’s new SPA platform that also underpins the new Volvo XC90.

The S90L will be manufactured in China where it will compete directly with the locally made & stretched Audi A6L, BMW 5Li, and Mercedes-Benz E-class L. The S90L is expected to launch in China in late 2015. Power will come from the same engines as in the new XC90: T5 257hp 2.0 turbo, T6 325hp 2.0 turbo-supercharged, and a T8 405hp 2.0 turbo-supercharged + electric motor.

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.
