Volvo's New Flagship S90 Is A Rolling Lounge Room

Most would think that motor vehicles and lounge rooms have no place gallivanting with one another. Not Volvo. The Swedish carmaker will debut their innovative new ‘Lounge Console’ in their upcoming flagship sedan, the S90 Excellence.

This story was originally published on D’Marge.

To show off the unconventional cabin design, Volvo has created a sculpture to explain how the concept would work in the Volvo S90. Both areas of work and play are catered for with the removal of the front passenger seat where an intuitive work station now resides.

The work station features fold-out surfaces, drink holders, a mini refrigerator, luxury glasses by Orrefors and a pivoting large screen which can hook up to any work device such as a Macbook. When it comes time to relax, the lounge reclines to offer ample leg space as well as heated foot support with an automatic ottoman.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Watch in awe at the video above explaining the technology.

    What's the point of these stupid mock-ups, honestly they never materialise ever. Who cares really.

      Trickle down technology my friend. What you see here is a grand idea. In 10-15 years most of it will be standard.

        Maybe your right, I get that, it's just seems pointless to me, but ultimately your correct. Bit like the Volvo YCC concept (i think it was called that), That would have been great albeit someone would have claimed it to be discriminatory to women

          I vaguely remember this car. Quick google search reveals it is hideous.
          I like the storage ideas they come up with, for keys, phones etc.
          But the overall look of the car and the marketing ploy they went with killed it.

    I'm pretty sure this is actually being released as the S90 'Excellence' model.

    Hopefully they'll release a V90 Excellence model as well. Wagon!
    Also, they should handle crashes similar to this:

    Who is this marketed at? High end driver/taxi service that only allows 2 passengers?

    Not suitable as a normal self-driven vehicle, I'd rather my passenger sit next to me, not in the bloody back. Replacing a chair with a shoe rack is a stupid idea. The rest is pointless fluff for the uber-rich.

      Aimed at the Chinese market where most owners of luxury cars have a driver and sit in the back. Remember Volvo is owned by Geely now....

    It's almost like they're building it for a luxury car not intended for the masses, but rather for the wealthy who can afford to have a driver...

    Banned in Australia, no relaxing allowed.

    Oh cool, So it is just a 1988 model Nissan cima, or Toyota Celsior
