Volvo Concept Estate teased for Geneva debut

Volvo will complete its concept car trilogy next month at the Geneva Motor Show with the debut of its Concept Estate, following the Concept Coupe from last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show and Concept XC Coupe from last month’s Detroit Auto Show.

All three concepts are previewing the styling of the next-generation XC90, that we saw for the first time testing last month in Northern Sweden.

The Concept Estate teasers here don’t come from Volvo, but instead were released by Stutterheim, a Swedish raincoat maker, which handmade the high-quality car cover for the concept.

The car cover is handmade using hand-stitched seams on a rubberized cotton fabric.

It looks like the Concept Estate draws inspiration from the Volvo P1800 ES two-door station wagon from the seventies, but in a more modern package, featuring a steeply angled rear screen, wide rectangular grille and huge alloy wheels.
