Volvo Pulls a Tesla or Two with New Geneva-Bound Concept Estate
First, we saw the Volvo Concept Coupe and then the Volvo XC Concept Coupe. Now, may we introduce you to the third in a trio of utterly sexy Swedes: The Volvo Concept Estate. For those of you who speak American, that means wagon. Or ridiculously good-looking wagon.Supposedly modeled after a Scandinavian living room, the Volvo Concept Estate features orange seatbelts, woven wool carpets, crystal, wood, and even the Swedish game called "kubb" situated under glass in the load floor. Not long ago, Volvo was known more for its safety designs than its ability to catch glances, but the Concept Estate manages to do both. While it is strictly a concept with proportions similar to those of a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, the Volvo Concept Estate should give us a good indication of just what to expect as the 2015 XC90 will be the first vehicle from Volvo to usher in the company's new architecture and design language. If it looks even half as good, we'll be stoked. Check out our mega gallery or wait for more from next month's Geneva Motor Show. Source: Volvo
