Swedish Automobile manufacturer, Volvo cars unveiled their interior concept for the new S90 Excellence sedan at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show. With the positive feedback over original Lounge Console Concept in the XC90 that was showcased at the Beijing Motor Show last year, the company wanted to take it to a next level for the top-of-the-line variant of the S90. The Sculpture illustrates how the three-seat interior concept will look on the new S90 sedan.
Volvo indeed is a brand that works differently and with a different approach, the company started working over this piece of art from the rear, where the designers gave the most comfortable seats and a centre console that has lots of features like the heated and cooled cup holder, the sound system, massage function and the large multi-media screen. Enhancing the luxury feeling, Volvo has fitted a refrigerator unit in the S90 Excellence, this unit is built into the rear armrest.
“We had such positive feedback with our original Lounge Console Concept in the XC90 that we wanted to take it a step closer to reality in an S90 Excellence interior. With this interior we wanted to create a piece of art, a sculpture. We’ve taken many of the original concepts and made them come to life,” said Robin Page, Vice President Interior Design at Volvo Cars.”
“One of the key elements is the removal of the front passenger seat. We removed this to provide unrestricted forward visibility and the sense of space and light that this brings. It has an immediate and extremely calming effect,” said Robin Page.
The Concept provides three comfortable alternatives – a mobile working station that combines a fold-out work table and large screen for checking your emails or video conferencing. Secondly, a pure entertainment mode where you can catch up on your latest Netflix shows and movies, and a pure relaxation mode where you can recline your seat, take out a cold drink from the fridge and relax with your feet on the heated foot support, not to forget you already have massager seats.
