I noticed a bulge underneath the carpet for the 2nd row seat. And saw the carpet was covering these wires underneath the driver's seat. This is a RHD XC90 BTW.

Am afraid the kids will kick it or get their foot tangled. I've tried pushing but can't push it much in. So it's either the wires are on top of the carpet edge or underneath.

Is it supposed to be like that?

Isn't this the amp for the sound system? I know on MY21XC90 its under front passenger seat. I have also noticed this with kids and wondered why put it there. I found out first time I vacuumed the car.

The wires are likely going to the right rear subwoofer which is on the right rear - likely the same setup for both LHD and RHD.

That is how it looks on my LHD vehicle passenger side with B&W since MY16 by design.

To mitigate the risks, you could consider adding a portion of a black rubber as a protective flap. It is obviously less exposed the further the seat is in the back positions.

Thanks everyone, initially thought the wires was wrongly routed and I should inform the dealer.

I'm not a tall guy so my seat is not that far back. I'll see if can find some rubber or something else to cover it up.

If you have the Volvo OEM rubber floor mats, it comes with a second row hump cover which is not used in the T8 configuration. That would be pliable enough and you could trim it to look decent.

This is the hump cover that I am referencing where my rubber winter mats are black.

Thanks for the pics! Now have an idea what to fabricate.

Actually I am waiting for T8 the rubber floor mats to be available. The dealer said there is or will be a T8 specific floor mats, something to do with the battery. Now I understand what the dealer meant.

Had a second look at the wires. There was enough play and room to snug it in front of the carpet.

Though using your suggestion would cover the wires and make this look tidier. It won't be hard to find a similar generic rubber mats and cut it to size.
