The 1,927 First Edition owners of the best SUV in the world will get a fully equipped car with uniquely numbered tread plates and a distinctive badge on the tailgate.
 
“The first buyers signed up for their favourite number in milliseconds. The rapid response confirms that the XC90 is a truly iconic car model. The First Edition will be a collectors item in the future,” said Alain Visser.
