Geely Auto has released the first official images of its first coupe SUV, code-named the FY11, which hints at a full reveal being made soon, in line with the Q1 2019 introduction mentioned in earlier news reports.

As the profile suggests, the fastback shape is reminiscent of the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and BMW X4. Penned by Geely Design Shanghai, design cues on the FY11 include the automaker’s signature expanding cosmos grille, slimmed down for this application, as well as muscular shoulder lines and heavily sculpted lower air intakes.

The SUV also gets new a daytime running light design, styled along the lines of what the company terms a ‘digital arrow’, offering a modern take on the historical weapon. It also borrows styling elements from the Borui GE such as the Chinese fan-inspired rear light design. At the back, the model wears a horizontal chrome runner strip with Geely wording.

The car, which measures 4,605 mm long, 1,878 mm wide and 1,643 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,700 mm, will be the first Geely vehicle to ride on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform co-developed by Geely and Volvo, and which is already in use on the Volvo XC40 and on models from the Lynk & Co sub-brand.

The news reports also indicate that the powertrain choice for the coupe SUV will be similar to that seen on the Borui GE. The plug-in hybrid system will consist of a 1.5L three-cylinder turbocharged engine, an electric motor and a ternary-lithium battery offering 177 hp and 255 Nm.

The possible name for the FY11 has also been hinted at – according to the country’s ministry of industry and information tech, potential names that have reportedly been registered by the company include Fengyue, Geyue, Haoyue, Jinyue, Xingyue and Zhiyue.
