Volvo Concept Estate

The Volvo Concept Estate is a celebration of all that’s great about Swedish design. Volvo has chosen to showcase a calm, retro aesthetic that typifies what drivers love about Swedish design and craftsmanship. While this model will not be headed to Lovering Volvo of Nashua, aspects of the concept’s design are expected to find their way to future Volvo cars.

Volvo Concept Estate

“Trends within contemporary Swedish lifestyle and design were powerful sources of inspiration for the design team.”

Design and Aesthetics

The Volvo Concept Estate is based on the P1800, a classic station wagon introduced by Volvo in the early 1970s. While the profile of the typical station wagon is boxy and functional, Volvo has paired the muscular haunches of the inspirational vehicle with an elongated body and low hood for a sleeker look. The T-shaped running lights use energy-efficient LED bulbs, while the taillights have a retro-futuristic look that would be at home in the 1980s with its lights shaped like inverted question marks.

The interior has been designed to mimic the bright, cozy feeling of a Swedish home. The roof and hatchback are all glass, while the interior is largely black and white, with a crosshatched upholstery pattern that pays homage to Swedish art and design. There are also orange touches-like the rust-colored seatbelts and the soft wool carpeting -that give a homey feel to the Volvo Concept Estate. As a finishing touch, the crystal shift lever shows a note of sophistication and luxury.


The Concept Estate doesn’t just show off Swedish design and innovation, but Swedish goods as well. You’ll get freebies like a pair of Stutterheim high-quality raincoats, perfect for taking romantic walks on misty Swedish shores. Included is a game of “kubb”-best described as Swedish lawn bowling-which can be found under the loading floor, behind the rear seats.

The Concept Estate doesn’t emphasize new or groundbreaking technology, but what it has it uses in the most unobtrusive way possible. Instead of cluttered dashboard buttons, you’ll get a single oversized touchscreen. It’s intuitive, easy to use, and the functions are mated to the accompanying adaptive digital display.
