2020 Volvo XC90 Armoured: SUV turned into a bulletproof VIP van

The 2020 Volvo XC90 Armoured is modified by Trasco Bremen to make it VPAM VR8 compliant, and have explosive resistance and 360 degree bullet resistance.


The XC90 Armoured is based on the T6 AWD model, and has high strength steel armor that’s 10mm (0.4″) thick, and glass that’s up 50mm (2″) thick.

With 5 people on board, the XC90 Armoured weighs a very substantial 4,490kg (9,900 lb). Because of the extra weight, the XC90 Armoured also features new suspension and brakes.

Volvo is also developing lighter amored models based on the XC60 T6 AWD and XC90 T6 AWD.
