We had reported about the Volvo Concept Coupe which was showcased during the Frankfurt Motor show. Now, according to a report by AutoBild, it has emerged that it could go into a “Limited Production”. Due to the response received at the Motor Show, Volvo bosses have decided to consider a production variant. This Concept is expected to go on floors by next year. Company officials say it highlights the future design direction of the next generation of Volvo models, beginning with the XC90, which debuts in 2014.
This Concept Coupe is quite a looker and commands a second look. On the exterior , the design elements of the concept include a new face and body that depicts many of the core classic design elements of Volvo in a much more contemporary package which are further enhanced by details like the new T-shaped daytime running lamp light guides.
Interior include a new handcrafted leather instrument panel, inlays made of naturally aged wood and machined metal details. The concept also features a new large touch-screen in the center console with an adaptive digital display and head-up display in front of the driver.
Even the powertain of this coupe indicates how Volvo, which is now owned by the Chinese Geely is aggressively working to revive the brand. It is powered by a 2.0 liter Drive-E gasoline engine with a supercharger and turbo teamed with an electric motor that powers the rear axle and gives the car a total output of around 400 hp and over 600 Nm of torque.
