The European public will see Volvo's latest concept car, the 3CC, for the first time at the Geneva show, as Volvo rewrites the rules on how we will use our cars in the future.
Volvo 3CC demonstrates Volvo's vision of sustainable mobility for the future, as well as Volvo safety innovations for smaller cars.
"With the Volvo 3CC, Volvo Cars is pioneering a new way of looking at mobility so that future generations can enjoy the same freedom the car has given my generation. We believe it is necessary to show new ways to reduce pollution and congestion," says Lars Erik Lundin, Vice President & General Manager of the Volvo Monitoring and Concept Center (VMCC). "We want to connect in a positive way with consumers so that they say 'I want to be seen in this car' ", Lars Erik Lundin explains."We want to add emotional value to people's lives by offering an environmentally compatible car that appeals to all the senses, and which people want to drive."
The 3CC is a small, sleek and environmentally efficient car with a powerful, zero emission electric power train, great aerodynamics and a lightweight, high-strength steel space frame. Its electric power comes from 3,000 lithium batteries identical to those used in modern laptop computers, packaged in a thin sandwich floor that could adapt to house the most appropriate power train in the future, whether it is petrol, biogas or a hybrid electric.
The double floor used to house the electric energy storage makes the concept future-proof in that the layout can be adapted for the most appropriate power train in the future, whether it be petrol, diesel, biogas, or hybrid electric," explains Ichiro Sugioka, Science Officer at VMCC in California
Created by the people behind the Volvo Monitoring and Concept Center in California, the Volvo 3CC is a `future-proof concept' that would enhance sustainable mobility. Good aerodynamics on a compact footprint, lightweight body materials, and an electric power train where there is abundance of renewable energy sums up the Volvo 3 CC.
