Earlier this year, the Volvo Concept Coupé was shown, providing the world’s first glimpse into Volvo Cars’ new design direction under Senior Vice President of Design, Thomas Ingenlath. It also showed one interpretation of how the proportions and versatility of Volvo Cars’ new Scalable Product Architecture, that will underpin all medium and large cars in the company’s future, could look.
According to the company, “The Volvo Concept Coupé was the first of three design studies. The next chapter in Volvo Cars’ new design story showcases how the company’s safety technology as well as a contemporary Scandinavian active lifestyle could be integrated into the new architecture.”
The Volvo Concept XC Coupé will make its world debut at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) on January 13.
The Concept XC Coupé builds on Volvo’s history of Cross Country and XC products, with Volvo Cars having created the niche in 1997. In anticipation of the full reveal of the car in early 2014, Volvo Cars has shared these three images of the vehicle.
