The Geely MPV Concept, which was revealed at Auto Shanghai 2017, is said to preview a successor to the Emgrand EV8. The initial photos released by the Chinese carmaker certainly looked promising, with a sleek, futuristic design that includes a few touches that may be a little too far out there to make it on the production version.
Here, we bring you live photos of the MPV Concept for you to better evaluate its looks. Highlights here include a modern take on the Geely grille that is flanked by a pair of sweptback LED headlights. From the side, the concept’s pillarless entry is clearly shown when the doors are opened, the rear ones being rear-hinged items.
Notable cues include the dimple-like pattern near the D-pillar, also seen near the headlights, as well as a floating roof look. A character line extends from just below the side cameras to the taillights, where the narrow light bars overlap a central chrome trim that contains the Geely typeface.
Inside, there are three rows of bucket seats that designed to match the exterior theme. A dash-mounted touchscreen looks to control all the car’s functions, and there’s plenty of aluminium trim on show as well.
The design of the MPV Concept is the work of Peter Horbury, senior vice president for design at Geely Automobile Holdings, who had previously worked for Volvo as its vice president for design as well.
