A concept car is often an opportunity for a manufacturer to present the future of a brand. Here are the features of this Recharge.
Two years ago we told you about The concept of recharge from Volvo.
Here are a number of features in detail.
Volvo Concept Recharge: features, design, engine
Volvo and Robin Page, head of design, describe the Recharge concept as “a declaration of the electric future of Volvo Cars, but also a new type of car”.
Halfway between an SUV and a station wagon, the Recharge concept features Volvo’s new design language, always under the banner of “less is more”. Mantra faithful to the legacy of Scandinavian design.
All extra features have been removed. The result is a car with elegant and flowing lines.
Starting from grill of the radiator, which has a structure a the shape of the shield and includes the new light signature of the brand’s zero-emission vehicles. Like the new EX90 electric SUV, the Recharge concept also features Thor’s hammer-shaped headlights.
If you look at this 3/4 concept, you see a protruding bonnet and a very dark roofline that extends towards the rear.
This is definitely a step in the direction of aerodynamics. A very important factor for a zero emission car.
There behind, however, differs from the coordinated structure in general. Here the emphasis is clearly on the vertical, and the L-shaped headlights of the brand have been slightly updated.
As soon as you enter this Scandinavian concept, after opening the double doors, you are greeted by a very spacious and bright cabin. If outside, the interior is also clean. The dashboard is horizontal and compact, with a small digital instrument panel behind the steering wheel.
The only break in this minimalist look is interesting 15-inch central touchscreenfixed and vertical.
THE material used is resistant and natural.
Forget leather, there is no leather in Volvo. Volvo Recharge uses a local material called Nordico instead. It is used for seat backs, headrests and the steering wheel. The rest of the cabin is made from responsibly sourced Swedish cotton, transformed into a natural, additive-free and breathable fabric.
On the side of internal spaceVolvo Recharge’s flat floor offers more space and better seating for all occupants.
The seats can also be raised or lowered. The seats can also be rotated to facilitate interaction between passengers.
At the same time, long wheelbase and 23 inch wheelsplaced on the four corners of the concept, it favors more accommodation and generous space on board.
