The Volvo Concept Estate revealed at the 2014 Geneva motor show reportedly points the way to a new flagship wagon model for the Swedish brand that will be known as the Volvo V90.

German magazine AutoBild reports the new Volvo V90 flagship wagon is set to be uncovered in 2016, following the brand’s expected launch of its all-new medium-sized V70 wagon in 2015.

The V90 is said to be based upon the brand’s Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA), likely as a low-slung alternative to the new-generation XC90 which will be revealed later this year. The report claims the V90 will use four-cylinder engines, and that a plug-in hybrid will be offered, too.

Just last week it was revealed that Volvo will involve Chinese parent company Geely with its next-generation small cars, including the replacement for the V40 hatch which is reportedly due in 2017. AutoBild reports there have been no decisions made for a hatch smaller than the V40, dubbed V20, due to the current state of the European market.
