Sedan Geely Preface: Volvo platform and a new face

In the framework of the 18th Shanghai motor show hosted the world premiere of new items from the brand.

Geely Preface is a concept that demonstrates the design development of the brand. Speech, in particular, is about what style will be executed future luxury sedans with the emphasis on “sport”. By the way, the name of the prototype speaks for itself: from English word “preface” is translated as “Preface”. The model introduced Vice President of Geely Design Studio in Shanghai Hai Berghain and Vice-President units of the Geely Design who previously worked at Volvo.

In the core of the concept is a truck CMA (Compact Modular Architecture), developed jointly with Geely Volvo (Swedish brand now owned by the Chinese). If to speak about Geely, this brand is the second model (albeit in the status of the show car), which received the platform. The first was kupeobrazny crossover utility vehicle with factory index FY11, known in China as Xingyue. In selling in the domestic market, it promises to be this year. Recall, CMA also built the Volvo XC40 and joint car brand Geely and Volvo – Lynk & Co (01,02 and 03).

Compared to the current serial Geely models, the sedan Preface a larger grille, which “drowned” in the front of the car. Of course, the novelty has already flaunts an updated logo, more simply – his company uses to 2019. The rear doors swing open against the direction of motion. The Central strut missing, and the frame of the door. In the cabin attention is drawn to the hexagonal wheel and the unusual shape of the chair.

About the power plant information. However, while the company concept is positioned as a “vision of the future”, about serial prospects in Geely silence. If the sedan and give the “green light”, the “suicide” doors the commodity model is unlikely to remain, optics will become easier as the interior.

Meanwhile, in the current lineup Geely has a large “cityradio” Borui (Emgrand GT). On the Chinese market this model came out in 2014, it is time for a change of generations – it is not excluded that in the design Borui / Emgrand GT and will easily see traces of the Preface. Note, the current version of the sedan based on its own trolley Geely, however, a new generation can be transferred to the platform of CMA.
