Volvo Concept Universe unveiled at Auto Shanghai [videos]

Following last week's teaser, Volvo has officially unveiled the Universe concept at the Shanghai Auto Show.

Built to preview the company's flagship sedan, the Universe has a restrained design that is undeniably elegant. While Volvo is staying mum on details, the car features LED headlights, "suicide" rear doors and a sloping roofline that gives the concept a dynamic stance.

Inside, passengers are treated to a luxurious cabin that boasts leather upholstery, wood trim, a floating center console and individual seating for four.

According to Peter Horbury, Vice President of Design at Volvo, "The Concept Universe is exceptionally refined, yet with all the simplistic assets that make Volvo champions of the uncomplicated. There is a growing appreciation for this ingenious blend of design and technology among modern luxury car buyers. This trend paves the way for our success. We are convinced that our special brand of luxury has a great future."
