For long, Volvo has been called a great automaker without any great designs. The company is now trying to change that, an example of which is the stunning new XC Coupe concept which Volvo recently unveiled.
According to the designer of this new concept car, Thomas Ingelath, “The Volvo Concept XC Coupé is perfectly in tune with this active lifestyle. Its capability and protection is cleverly integrated into the sophisticated looks. Concept XC Coupé is ready and willing to bring you into the adventure zone and back.”
Ingelath further says that the design has been inspired by a love for outdoor activities, something which is quite manifest in the sturdy, ready-for-adventure build of the XC Coupe concept.
Naturally, since it is still a concept car, Volvo hasn’t divulged what the beautiful exterior packs under its hood. As far as the design goes, Volvo has added a tinge of orange in the wheels which really stands out against the overall white outlook and doesn’t look bad at all.
Volvo may not be known for the design of its vehicle but it certainly has a name when it comes to the safety of cars. Ingelath doesn’t forget to stress this point when he says, “Concept XC Coupé also shows how clever engineering makes it possible for us to reinforce our world-leading safety without compromising design, size or weight. Thanks to the extensive use of high-strength boron steel and structures with new, ingenious decoupling, we can make SPA cars more compact and safer at the same time.”
