Geely has revealed the name of its new MPV, the VF11, as well as new studio images of the vehicle, which was shown in concept form at Auto Shanghai last year. The people mover will be officially known as the Jiaji.

Set to make its domestic market debut before the end of the year, the exterior of the final series production form remains identical to what was seen when it was first sighted via leaked images back in April, and expands on that offered via the teaser image set released by the automaker in September.

Exterior design cues on the three-row MPV include the brand’s ‘expanding cosmos’ grille, LED headlamps with a four-bar LED light arc array for daytime running lights, LED foglamps and a chrome trim strip – with Geely lettering – bridging the tail lamp clusters.

No specifications were revealed, but it has previously been reported that the Jiaji measures in at 4,706 mm long, 1,909 mm wide and 1,664 mm tall, with a wheelbase length of 2,805 mm. Supposedly, the Jiaji will be available in a choice of five-, six- or seven-seater options at launch.

Reported powertrains for the Jiaji include a 1.5 litre turbocharged direct-injection four-cylinder engine offering 177 hp, which is essentially the Geely and Volvo co-developed unit already seen on the Binyue SUV, in that application offering 174 hp and 255 Nm of torque paired with a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.

There’s also a plug-in hybrid version, which will also utilise a 1.5 litre turbo mill paired with an electric motor. A full electric version will complete the variant line-up, although that was originally said to be set for introduction after the petrol and PHEV versions.

We do know that the Jiaji will make its way here and will be badged as a Proton, essentially as a replacement for the Exora. It was reported that the national automaker had secured the use of intellectual properties (IP) and the rights to manufacture and sell three Geely models – aside from the Boyue, which we all know as the Proton X70, there’s the SX11 SUV (the Binyue) and the VF11, the Jiaji.
