Volvo XC90 Lounge Console concept revealed with no front passenger seat [video]

In addition to a recently introduced luxurious XC90 Excellence with two individual reclining rear seats, Volvo has unveiled also a new XC90 concept at the Shanghai Auto Show, which takes executive in-car luxury to a new level.

The XC90 Lounge Console concept replaces the front passenger seat, providing a wealth of functions and amenities.

“We started this work by looking at the executive lifestyle. With our progressive approach to premium design and functionality we analyzed the needs and perspective of the chauffeur driven executive, designing the car around him or her in the spirit of our brand’s aim,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Car Group.

“A key element in our thinking was how to make the available interior space work for the occupants in an optimal and luxurious fashion. Removing the passenger seat enabled us to create an open space that dramatically changes the dynamics of the interior and led to a firework of ideas and new possibilities.”

Instead of a front passenger seat there is a large work table which opens to reveal an illuminated vanity mirror, including a storage tray for jewelry and personal accessories or make-up. The table rotates 90 degrees and simultaneously powers forward to display a large 17” media screen for a full in-car theater experience.

Below the cushioned leg rest is also an additional area for shoes.

This sure looks comfortable, though it is unlikely we will see it in production.
