Volvo has made a lot of promises recently about concepts that will blow us away. The first two versions have done exactly that, and now, ahead of the third one’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show , we’re getting a few hints at what’s in store for concept number three.
The concept has been billed as the Concept Estate and follows in the work of the Swedish company’s first two concept offerings, the Concept Coupe and the Concept XC Coupe . Not much in the way of details yet except for a handful of teaser photos unveiled by a Swedish company called Stutterheim.
If you’re not familiar with the brand, Stutterheim is actually a Swedish raincoat maker that’s been tasked by Volvo to develop the car cover the Concept Estate will be, shall we say, hiding from before it makes its worldwide debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Seems to explain why these photos were first seen in the website of Stutterheim; after all, the company is also probably showing off its new Estate Svart car cover, a design that was co-created by Volvo’s design time that makes use of "hand-stitched seams on a rubberized cotton fabric in the best quality."
As far as the Concept Estate is concerned, there are a few details peaking out from under that Estate Svart car cover, including the same prominent grille we first saw from the other two concepts. There also appears to be a tailgate-mounted spoiler, a dual exhaust system ,and five-spoke alloy wheels, which are all hardly surprising given the efforts Volvo put to show the world that it’s ready to come out and fight for attention.
More details of the Concept Estate are expected to drop when Geneva opens its doors.
