Sketch shown during presentation
27 January 2010

Volvo has shown this sketch of a future electric car - but has denied it has any plans to put it into production.

The sketch was shown during a presentation during an event hosted by lithium-ion battery manufacturer EnerDel, who will provide the electric vehicle platform for the electric Volvo C30.

It was accompanied by a caption reading: "a future Volvo electric car?"

A Volvo spokesman has confirmed the sketch was produced by one of its designers, but has insisted that it was produced to illustrate the concept of electric cars, rather than a definite model.
