Some believed it to be a a Citroen C9 study, while others attempted to pass it on as a Volvo Universe II Sedan concept, but both were proved wrong. The truth is the “Mystery Concept” car that had many of our viewers scratching their heads and speculating since it came out on Friday, is a brand new Volvo Coupe Concept.
Carscoops reader Rok, whom we thank, pointed us to an official video from the Swedish carmaker in which we catch glimpses of the new concept car – you’ll have to slow down the clip to see it, but no need to worry as we did the work for you with a batch of screenshots.
In the short clip, the brand’s new Vice President of Design, Thomas Ingenlath, who took over from Peter Horbury last year, after he moved to a new executive position as Senior Vice President of Design at Geely Group, Volvo’s parent company, says that Volvo is moving on and that the automaker’s “Vanilla” design days are over.
Volvo also notes that, “An imminent transformation is underway” adding “Did someone say Frankfurt? Stay tuned,” obviously pointing to a world premiere in Germany next month.
Shout out to Rok for the heads up!
