The Volvo Concept Estate garnered Autoblog's Editors' Choice award as our team's favorite reveal at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show earlier this month for its sleek take on Scandinavian design, and now it looks like we might actually see the sleek wagon in production. Volvo is reportedly considering using the concept as the basis for a replacement for the V70 wagon, dubbing the new model V90.

It's rumored to be part of the Swedish brand's plan to launch a new range of 90-series vehicles. In addition to the more luxury-oriented wagon, the family of models includes the XC90 that is expected to debut later this year. According to MotorAuthority, Volvo is also considering using the same version of its Scalable Product Architecture that underpins the crossover to create a range-topping S90 sedan to replace the S80. Assuming it's a success, a C90 coupe is even a possibility. All of these models would be outfitted with the company's Drive-E four-cylinder engine family, which includes hybrids and plug-in hybrids.

The Swedish automaker is also looking downmarket with help from owner Geely in China with replacement 40-series models. According to MotorAuthority, the duo's rumored small car platform will be used to create an updated V40 wagon, C40 hatchback (a C30 successor), as well as an XC40 compact crossover.

Clearly, Volvo thinks it's time for some new products. If they all look as good as the Concept Estate, we say 'bring 'em on.'

      Now if they could just find Roger Moore, ......:) Some classic styles always appeal. Jan Wilsgaard's design for the Volvo P1800 ES created a sensation for Volvo in 1972, and still attracts admiration, influencing another generation of designers.

      This (gorgeous) concept car is nothing more than that: a concept car that will never be produced, at least in this form. It will end-up being a four door wagon, and nothing more. Volvo won't ever resurrect the P1800 wagon(!)

      By the time this design is in a showroom it will be old already.

      The rear fenders remind me of those fat women whose fat bunches up and points outward on the sides of their hips. Just a smidgen too much protrusion in that area of this car.

      Beautiful. First car I owned was a P1800 (not ES, but still..) RWD, maybe in a size similar to small hatches like the CT200h (only with more go). Bring it to the US, and you've got a buyer. Especially if it includes a real spare tire, something those of us with lots of open spaces really appreciate!

      I'm completely smitten by the Concept Estate but the V90 will most certainly have two more doors which will kill its appeal for me (granted, while making it more appealing for the masses). This four-door render on autobild.de just doesn't do it for me: http://www.autobild.de/artikel/volvo-v90-v40-v20-5021582.html
