Volvos are more known for their safety than for their aggressive looks. Which is why these Volvo 40 Series Concept Cars are so interesting. Their bold lines and angular forms are a departure from the company's traditional design language, and represent the future of their compact lineup. The 40.1 is a taller, crossover-like vehicle, while the 40.2 is a lower-slung sedan, both are built on the new Compact Modular Architecture. Unlike most concepts, the first 40 Series is expected to go into production in 2017 and will be available as a twin engine plug-in hybrid or as a fully electric vehicle.
