Göteborg, Sweden – Volvo Car Corporation has revealed the “first glimpse” of its next concept car, the Volvo S60 Concept, which it will unveil at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2009. The car will also give a clear indication of what the all-new S60 will look like when it is introduced in 2010.

“We both can and dare to deliver even more exciting and more dynamic designs while retaining our grip on the lead position with regard to safety,” said Stephen Odell, Volvo president and CEO. “The concept car shows part of our future, it’s a hint that the all-new S60 will be one of the strongest contenders in the CD premium segment.”

The first picture reveals a coupe-inspired silhouette with new shoulder contours, which the company says is a “double wave” inspired by Sweden’s coastline. Interior features will include a floating centre stack made of Orrefors crystal from the instrument panel to the rear seat backrest.
