Future Cars Blog: The Volvo Tundra

2020-01-25 - Megan Russell

The Volvo Tundra was a Volvo Concept Car that was built and designed by Bertone in 1979. Bertone was told to do "something delicious" based on the Volvo 343

It was rejected by Volvo who thought it was "too modern and difficult to sell". Bertone instead sold a very similar design to Citroën, where it was produced as Citroën BX.

The Volvo featured a digital speedometer and was powered by a 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine with a whopping 70whp.

And whether or not anyone could have ever called this Volvo "delicious" it is indeed special. 

Can you see the similarities between the Volvo Tundra concept and the production Citroën BX?
