A few days ago a presented a teaser video with the Volvo Concept You. Well, we have now received full photos and details with this car (followed from the Concept Universe) which offers an insight into future Volvo Cars in terms of design.
Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO of Volvo Car Corporation said that “Concept You gives a good indication of what you can expect from our next large sedan. The blend of contemporary Scandinavian design, exquisite craftsmanship and intuitive technology will appeal to luxury car buyers all over the world,” The sleek exterior look is matched by a high-tech interior which allows the driver to keep in command via intuitive smart pad technology. This technology will be the hallmark of future Volvos, and will also be combined with high levels of luxury.
The Volvo Concept You is a car designed around people which draws inspiration from a number of world famous brands.
“We will compete with the best with our special kind of luxury. Volvo’s cars are intuitive and uncomplicated. Our customers don’t have to give away driving pleasure to drive safely. They can be environmentally
conscious and still indulge the pure joy of owning a luxury car”
This large luxurious sedan comes with a centre console that consists of four main areas: a digital Driver Information Monitor (DIM), a head-up display on the windscreen, a touch-screen in the upper part of the centre console and a touch-screen between the two individual rear seats.
All these areas interact with the driver based on his reaction, so for example the touch-screen in the upper part of the centre console remains in sleep mode until the driver looks at it, while another sensor registers hand movements and triggers the Infotainment system’s control mode.
“Certain functions, such as surfing the Web, are only accessible from the passenger side while the car is rolling. The technology knows who is the present operator and adapts itself automatically,” The driver can also “flip” data from the central touch-screen to the head-up display and can also exchange data with the rear passengers.The Volvo Concept You also features a high-end sound system from Alpine integrated into the Infotainement system, comprising of small, optimised units in order to keep weight down.
With four individual seats at the interior, all wrapped in chrome-free leather and ecological suede, the Volvo Concept You is reportedly inspired by Georg Jensen, with its exterior featuring a liquid metal paint from DuPont, ventilated brakes developed by the automaker’s Polestar division, and 21 inch wheels featuring a twisted twin-spoke design, made from polished aluminium.
