Volvo went through some doldrums around the same time it was bought by Geely, but it proved that it was back when it unveiled the P1800-inpsired Concept Coupe last August at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It followed up with the sleek Concept XC Coupe crossover (pictured above) in Detroit that echoed the next-generation XC90. Now, the Swede is readying one more concept to bring the trilogy to an end, and act as the centerpiece of its display at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

There are no images of the new concept yet, not even a teaser, but Volvo says that like the other two, it's designed by Thomas Ingenlath and shares common design elements. Since it has already imagined a future coupe and crossover, maybe the concept is a sedan. Volvo has confirmed that it rides on the modular Scalable Product Architecture platform that is being used on multiple future production models and uses its new Drive-E four-cylinder engine family.

The Concept Coupe and Concept XC Coupe will be on display with the new concept in Geneva so that visitors can get a complete idea of Volvo's future. Hopefully, the company has finally righted the course and is ready to compete on the world stage again. Scroll down to read Volvo's few details about the new concept.

VOLVO CARS AT THE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW 2014

Volvo Car Group will reveal the third and final in the current series of concept cars from its new Senior Vice President of Design, Thomas Ingenlath. At this year's Geneva Motorshow, at a press conference to be held at 1.30pm on Tuesday 4th March 2014, the new concept car will join the award winning Concept Coupe and Concept XC Coupe on Volvo's stand, in Hall 6, Stand 6051.

As with the previous two, the new concept car has been designed and built on Volvo's brand new chassis, titled Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), and is powered by its new Drive-E Powertrain.

The new concept car will be the stand centre-piece, along with the Concept Coupe and Concept XC Coupe, and will be complimented by the rest of the Volvo range and showcase of the Drive-E engines, the first of which, the diesel D4, has already been seen and driven in a number of Volvo models in the UK.

      I wonder how stupid all the people that were saying Volvo would go extinct after the Chinese takeover feel these days. Personally I was rather confident that Geely would treat Volvo with the respect its due. Geely needed a crowbar into the Western market, and Volvo should praise themselves lucky that they were the ones picked out to fulfill that role. I'm sure that Volvo's budget these days is way above anything they've had in the past. And also design-wise things are looking good, very good indeed. Also, there's ever more evidence coming to the surface that they're finally going get an actual performance line (Polestar). I think the future is looking bright for Volvo, very bright.

        Couldn't have said it better myself. Look at Land Rover and Jaguar. Look how they did when Ford owned them. Look what they are accomplishing under Tata's ownership.

      I'm guessing it will be XC90 Concept to preview the production model.

      Not feeling it. Does not break any new ground. Just another version of the Land Rover Evoque.

      The concept coupe was good looking. The concept crossover was meh. I'm guessing this next one will be somewhere in the middle of those.
