Volvo’s two-door estate concept teased prior to 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on February 22, 2014

Volvo already announced a new concept car for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show but didn’t reveal any details about it. Today, few teaser photos with Volvo’s new concept car have finally emerged on the web. As you can see from the photos, the new concept car is actually a two-door estate.

Featuring rectangular exhausts at the rear, wraparound taillights and an interesting tailgate with a sporty rear spoiler, the new concept car also comes with Volvo’s new corporate front end that includes a floating radiator grille as well as the new T-shaped headlights. Moreover, we find large alloy wheels similar to those found on the Concept Coupe.

Just like the other two concepts, this new two-door estate uses company’s new Scalable Product Architecture platform and provides a close look at Volvo’s design philosophy that will be seen on the upcoming production models.

The first production model to use the new Scalable Product Architecture platform will be used by the next-generation XC90 that was previewed by the XC Coupe Concept.

According to media reports, the new XC90 will make its debut somewhere in 2015. Volvo also introduced back in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show the Concept Coupe, a vehicle inspired by the conic P18000 design from the 1960s.

The two-door estate concept that will be unveiled next month at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show is the third and final in the current series of concept cars from Volvo’s new Senior Vice President of Design, Thomas Ingenlath.

Just like the sister cars, the new concept will also feature the Scalable Product Architecture platform and it is powered by the new Drive-E powertrain. Volvo will feature all three concepts at its Geneva Motor Show booth and the new concept car will be the centre-piece. The concept cars will be joined by the rest of the Volvo range and showcase the Drive-E engines.
