The Volvo Concept Coupe that we had reported being teased earlier, is now officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It is built on the Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA) which is reclined to show the upcoming projects of automakers and also derives some of the cues from that the 1960 launched Volvo P1800.
The concept coupe of Volvo remarkably shows that it is not a vanilla car of the fraternity. The 21-inch alloys, T-shaped headlamps, C-shaped tail lamps, long hood, vertically floating front grille, panoramic glass, reclining roofline, proves its mettle in the aggressive Swedish style. The rear-mounted hybrid powertrain of 2.0-liter petrol-fuelled four-cylinder Drive-E engine is applied for hitting the traction on all wheels. And turbocharger as well as supercharger makes a one to go gaga over it for the power of 400 horses (298 kW) and 600Nm (443 lb-ft.) of torque.
Interiors shown too look futuristic. Premium leather upholstery, grey wood trim and gloss black accents running across it, are the Swedish definition of going premium in the coming times. The head-up display and a large touchscreen infotainment system complements it all.
As per to Volvo’s Senior Vice President of Design, Thomas Ingenlath, “The Volvo Concept Coupe is no futuristic dream car.” Instead it is made to show what the brand can do on its new platform that has: the confident stance, the proportions and the most prominent design signatures in the fullest.
Whereas, he also teased the upcoming second-generation XC90 will be based on this same SPA platform, which is scheduled to make debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
