Volvo releases teaser video of Concept Universe car


Volvo just released a teaser video of its upcoming Concept Universe, which will make its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show next week. The Concept Universe will probably be produced in China when it gets to the production stage. This new Concept Universe car will help Volvo’s ambitious goal to double its current car volume in China by 2020.

The video is very vague, only showing the car under a cover and a few sketches. But what we can tell from the sketches and as the cover pulls away from the car in this video, it looks like a sport sedan, similar to a four-door fastback.

Could the Concept Universe be what the new Volvo SC90 might look like? We can only speculate for now, and we expect more details about the Volvo Concept Universe in the a few days.

Update: 4/19/2011

The Volvo Concept Universe car just made its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show. The Concept Universe is a large, luxurious sedan, which it is aimed at modern luxury car buyers.

“The Concept Universe offers the world a sneak preview of what people can expect from our next top-of-the-line sedan,” says Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO of Volvo Car Corporation.

Volvo did not release any technical details on the Concept Universe, but due to the similarity of the S90 sedan, we expect it is its future replacement.
