Chinese automotive brand, Geely, released official teaser images of its Compact Modular Architecture (CMA)-based crossover. While the photos do give a glimpse of the upcoming crossover, the full-blown skin of the vehicle is still under wraps.
As mentioned, the all-new model shall sit on the CMA platform which underpins the Geely Xing Yue, Xing Rui, as well as the Volvo XC40 and the Polestar 2. Despite the massive camouflage that invades the entire body, it is quite evident that this crossover carries a few key resemblances from the Volvo XC40 which is somewhat executed in larger dimensions.
Despite some of those familiar design cues, the upcoming crossover still comes with a few unique touches, including its longer rear overhang, flatter beltline, and a unique frontend that’s complemented with vertical bars on the grille. Overall, it shall look sleek yet distinctive as like most of its stablemates.
While the exterior has been slightly exposed, the interior remains a mystery, for now, however, the photos released reveal a panoramic sunroof which is actually a common feature among Geely vehicles sold today.
Though it’s unconfirmed just yet, this all-new crossover from Geely shall come with a familiar engine. Specifically, the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine also comes with a mild-hybrid system which is also available on the Azkarra and the recently launched Okavango. Apart from that, it was also mentioned that a plug-in hybrid variant is also possible which should be available on selected markets once the model finally reaches its production phase followed by its global debut.
As per the brand, production is planned to begin this third quarter of 2021. While we’re still limited in terms of info, we may stumble upon some updates in the coming days or months. For now, let’s hope that we’ll get a closer look at this model in the near future. Confidently, this should even bring greater success to the brand.
