Geely's MPV Concept Is Surprisingly Easy On The Eyes


MPVs don't always have to be hideous.

MPVs are primarily designed for practicality, so styling often isn’t a priority for manufacturers. Chinese automaker Geely is attempting to combat this convention with its latest concept vehicle, however, an MPV that’s easy on the eyes compared to some of the hideous eyesores that clog up city streets. Shown in images ahead of its reveal at this week’s Shanghai Auto Show, details are scarce for now but Paultan suggests it could be a successor to the Emgrand EV8.

Highlighting the surprisingly sleek design is Geely’s signature concentric grille, complemented with swept-back headlights, while a substantial air-intake dominates the front bumper. Its large wheels are housed inside pronounced wheel arches, and the B-, C- and D-pillers have been blacked out to give the appearance of a floating roof. Speaking of which, the Geely MPV Concept also has a panoramic glass roof, creating a homely atmosphere inside. The minimalist looks haven’t been compromised at the rear either, sporting slim tail lights and a thin chrome bar. Enter the suicide doors, and you’ll be greeted with a spacious interior housing three rows of sporty bucket seats.

A central display devoid of any physical buttons dominates the uncluttered dashboard. And in what is starting to become a cliche with concept cars, the side mirrors operate as functioning cameras. No powertrain details have been revealed yet, and Geely hasn’t said if it intends to put the MPV Concept into production. Expect more details at this week’s Shanghai Auto Show, where the Geely-owned Lynk & Co Sedan 03 Concept will also be showcased.
