It shows off the brand’s new design language and styling cues for building cars that aren't heavily based off internal combustion-engined vehicles like the XC40 Recharge and the C40 Recharge in its current line-up.
Robin Page, the Head of Design at Volvo, explained “It displays new and modern proportions that go hand in hand with increased versatility and shows what technology can enable in terms of design.”
The exact proportions of the car has not yet been revealed but the Concept Recharge appears to ride high like Volvo’s XC models whilst also having a lengthier body shape like that of an estate.
On the inside, a 15 inch touch screen steals the show on what is a very minimalist and clean looking cabin. Volvo’s next generation ‘Volvo OS’ infotainment system will come included too.
The concept features backwards-opening rear doors, an extended wheel base and entirely flat floor. A LiDar scanner will also be fixed onto the front of the roof.
A stretched wheelbase has allowed Volvo to reposition the seats which has created a sloping roofline and a lower bonnet, all whilst maintaining a ‘high eye point’, that drivers enjoy.
