Volvo has partnered with an unlikely accomplice to tease the coming of its third new concept, now revealed to be a shooting brake wagon.
A new gallery on the website of Swedish winter-wear brand Stutterheim makes for a clever riff on the usual pre-reveal wraps, swapping sheets for a custom raincoat.
And while still mostly covered, the images come together to reveal that Volvo will unveil a new two-door ‘Concept Estate’ wagon in Geneva next month.
The early sneak preview of the new concept also puts to rest speculation of a new sedan concept, with many anticipating a glimpse of the next S80 flagship model.
Volvo last previewed its next S80 with the Universe and You concepts in 2011, although the carmaker has since moved on from that look.
Technical details are still to come, although we know the Concept Estate will ride on Volvo’s new Scaleable Platform Architecture (SPA), which will form the basis of most of the company’s next-generation models.
Volvo’s new Drive-E engines will also power the future line-up, introducing a powerful new approach to four-cylinder technology.
Watch for more details to come next month.
