Volvo Concept Estate revealed, debuts next week in Geneva [videos]

Following teaser images released last week, Volvo has unveiled the Concept Estate, completing the concept car trilogy, following the debut of  the Concept Coupe at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show and Concept XC Coupe from last month’s Detroit Auto Show.

All these concepts are showing where Volvo is heading in the very near future. The first model to adopt the new language is the next XC90, set to debut later this year.

The Concept Estate comes with a familiar look, boasting a floating grille, low bonnet and T-shaped LED daytime running lights in a Shooting Brake package, reminding us the P1800 ES two-door station wagon from the seventies. The concept also features a glass roof.

This is the first of the three concepts to show the interior, hinting at the future design of future Volvo’s with its large portrait touchscreen, intuitive new user interface and high quality materials.

The touch screen will be the main control panel for Volvo’s new in-car user experience, replacing all buttons and controls except for a few crucial functions such as volume, play/pause, hazard warning and window heaters. It is a truly beautiful interior.

The Concept Estate rides on the same Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) as the other two concepts and is powered by an unspecified new Drive-E engine.
