Previously this summer Volvo took the wraps off the Idea Recharge, calling it a manifesto for the brand name’s future, meant as a sneak peek of the car manufacturer’s upcoming method and also design language. And as the concept itself demonstrated, Volvo was also gazing back at the past when it pertains to create, with a form that must know to those that have actually seen a Volvo wagon sometime in the past three decades.

Back in June Volvo didn’t disclose numerous information regarding the car’s interior, concentrating mainly on the outside. Now, Volvo is giving review at the concept, this time around highlighting the indoor information in addition to the rules of aerodynamics.

When it involves exterior layout, we can see several cars and trucks from Volvo’s background in the lines of the Idea Recharge, from the ingenious 850 wagon of 1993, to the much more current models including the Thor’s Hammer form in the fronts lights.

As for indoor materials, Volvo made use of fabric constructed out of sensibly sourced Swedish woollen on the cockpit console top as well as seat backrest, called being a warm as well as soft product, without ingredients. The seat backs and also headrests, on the other hand, were made from a brand-new material created by the car manufacturer called Nordico, which we first heard about not that long ago. Volvo shows that this product, developed to be soft to the touch, originates from bio-based as well as recycled components gotten from forests in Finland as well as Sweden. A variety of other area in the car are made from a material that contains Tencel fibers made from cellulose, while others, including surface areas in the lower storage space areas, use a flax composite that contains fibers from the linseed plant combined with various other fibers. Even the front as well as back bumpers on the outside were made from a flax composite.
