Report: New Volvo Concept to debut at Geneva – UPDATED

Reports indicate that the third design study utilizing Volvo’s new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) will show up at Geneva. The first of the trio is the Concept Coupe, revealed at the last Frankfurt Auto Show; second came the XC Coupe in Detroit last month and it’s entirely possible that the third and final copy will make its debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March. As discussed previously, the new design heralds a significant change both in the underpinnings of upcoming Geely-owned Volvo designs and the aesthetics.

Volvo Car Group will reveal the third and final in the current series of concept cars from its new Senior Vice President of Design, Thomas Ingenlath. At this year’s Geneva Motorshow, at a press conference to be held at 1.30pm on Tuesday 4th March 2014, the new concept car will join the award winning Concept Coupe and Concept XC Coupe on Volvo’s stand, in Hall 6, Stand 6051.

As with the previous two, the new concept car has been designed and built on Volvo’s brand new chassis, titled Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), and is powered by its new Drive-E Powertrain.

The new concept car will be the stand centre-piece, along with the Concept Coupe and Concept XC Coupe, and will be complimented by the rest of the Volvo range and showcase of the Drive-E engines, the first of which, the diesel D4, has already been seen and driven in a number of Volvo models in the UK.
