“The new Volvo Concept CoupĂ© reveals how we could shape our cars from now on.
Free from the superficial surface excitement of other car brands, we add emotional value to the Volvo brand with the calm, confident beauty that is the hallmark of Scandinavian design,” says Thomas Ingenlath.

The Concept Coupe is the first of a series of three concept cars, all in individual ways representing the next generation of Volvo models, starting with the forthcoming All-New Volvo XC90 in 2014.

A high-performance petrol engine teamed with an electric motor on the rear axle gives the Volvo Concept Coupe a total output of about 400 hp and over 600 Nm of torque
