Volvo Concept Estate

Volvo is set to complete its concept car trilogy at the next month’s Geneva Motor Show with the debut of its Concept Estate, the followup to its Concept Coupe from the Frankfurt Motor Show and Concept XC Coupe from the Detroit Auto Show. We’ve been looking forward to its Swiss debut, and now some teaser images of the Concept Estate have been uncovered… on the website of a raincoat seller?

Yes, Swedish raincoat maker Stutterheim has apparently been commissioned by Volvo to build a high-quality car cover for its Geneva concept, and the fabricator’s website shows off some of the details of the long-roofed design study. From what we can see, it looks like the Concept Estate is more shooting brake than traditional wagon. Also, it’s brown. So basically, Volvo has built the ultimate car for auto journalists.

Joking aside, the images show off more than a few of the design traits we’ve seen on Volvo’s two previous concept cars. A wide, rectangular grille and lowercase-B-shaped taillights are both noticeable in these teasers, but we can’t see much more than that.

We’ve gallerized the images from Stutterheim at the top of the page, so have a look and let us know what you think.
