Volvo Concept Coupe will not see a production version, at least for now

Article by Christian A., on December 2, 2014

Volvo introduced the Concept Coupe ahead at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, paying tribute to the iconic P1800 and showing the upcoming design philosophy. Although we didn’t think of an actual production version of the concept, it appears that Volvo thought of that and currently, the Swedish manufacturer doesn’t rule out the idea of offering a stylish coupe to take on vehicles such as the BMW 6-Series Coupe.

Volvo’s design manager exterior, Anders Gunnarson told AutoExpress that the coupe is currently on hold and it is a vehicle that every car manufacturer wants. The bad news is that Volvo will focus on the XC90 for now as it is their most important model.

Besides its impressive design, the Volvo Concept Coupe was also a powerful hybrid as it used a 2.0-liter high-performance Drive-E petrol engine with a supercharger and turbo, paired with an electric motor on the rear axle.

The total output delivered by the hybrid system was 400 hp and over 600 Nm of torque. In addition Anders Gunnarson also ruled out a coupe version of the XC90, which will take on the BMW X6, saying that such a vehicle is a bit far-fetched.
