Volvo’s heavily in the midst of overhauling their entire lineup and so far, we’ve seen a new second-generation XC90 and also know a new S90 and V90 flagship duo is on the way.
Now, the Swedish automaker was found to have registered trademarks for the names, C40 and C60, which suggest the company’s working on some new two-door models.
Volvo’s admittedly been absent from the personalized two-door affairs, both of the coupe and convertible types, ever since the C70 hardtop convertible was retired in 2013.
But such two-door Volvo life might be given a new breathe, thanks to the hint from these new trademarks.
Trademarks are obviously not to be taken seriously. While they often provide hints and suggestions towards future models, they’re rarely acted upon since trademarks are filed frequently as a safeguard to protect future names, in case car companies want to actually use them for new models.
Though, given Volvo’s coupe and convertible history, the chances of these models actually happening are still reasonable, especially when you consider Volvo teased a coupe once in concept form with the drop-dead gorgeous Concept Coupe from the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show.
Should these cars come to fruition, they’d be built on Volvo’s latest SPA modular platform.
