A simple FOI request will provide this information.

On the flip side, how many have been born / conceived in an XC90??

The main police authorities. They will hold records of road deaths due to RTC's and details of vehicles involved.

"Have any of the road deaths cause by RTC's involved an XC90"

That FIO request would be rejected in Scotland as it would cost too much to manually check thousands of records that are kept all the place.

The insurance companies may keep better data that can be searched. But there are lots of insurance companies, so does Volvo pay them to keep a trace on their records and report back?

The government records are incomplete, as shown above, so that is not the source.
I can assure you that the 'paperwork' involved when there is a fatality is far beyond just writing the car make on a written form. the cars full details including colour and even what luggage it was carrying goes into the investigation report which will at a later date be made available to certain orgs including MIB, roads planning and car manufacturers so they can learn how to make cars and roads safer

Possibly because the XC90 is the only one with that claim so that's the one they are boasting about , I personally know of deaths involving an S40 and another Volvo in the last 10 years.

'The most significant development since the safety belt'

Quote; ''Here is an extraordinary statistic: since the Volvo XC90 went on sale in the UK in 2002 it has sold over 50,000 vehicles, yet not a single person has been killed while driving it, or as a passenger.

It is, according to the independent laboratory Thatcham Research, the safest car it has ever tested.''
Nice to hear you on here again Laney.

47% of people are caused by accidents.

36% of statistics are made up.
