  • Under the hood is a T8 Twin-Engine motor packing 407PS and 640Nm.
  • The luxury SUV is priced at Rs 1.42 crore (ex-showroom).
  • Commands a premium of Rs 11 lakh over the standard XC90 Excellence.

India is one of the few countries to get the Excellence Lounge Console after it was first unveiled as a concept at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show. The front passenger seat now makes way for a multifunctional module that can double or triple up as a 17-inch display, a table, storage for personal items or even a footrest. The rest of the setup remains similar to the XC90 Excellence that is already on sale in India.

Contributing to the rich cabin experience are bits like the individual couch-like reclining rear seats that offers ventilation and massaging. Leg-room and overall space won't be an issue here thanks to the lesser number of seats. The SUV also comes with a refrigerator loaded with a bottle and glass holders, retractable touchscreen, and a heated/cooled cup holder. It also gains the finest quality upholstery complete with open pore wood and hand-crafted crystal glasses from Orrefors, a renowned Swedish glass maker.

It also gets all the bells and whistles from the XC90 Excellence including the 20-speaker, 1400-watt Bowers andamp; Wilkins sound system. Being mechanically similar to the Excellence, the Lounge Console uses the same plug-in hybrid T8 twin-engine configuration that deploys a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-litre petrol motor good for 407PS and 640Nm, coupled with an electric motor. Transmission duties are taken care of by an 8-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels.

Volvo sells the for Rs 1.31 crore (ex-showroom Delhi) while the Lounge Console commands a premium of Rs 11 lakh retailing at Rs 1.42 crore (ex-showroom). Volvo will only bring in more units based on demand, while there are less than 15 units available in the initial batch.
