The Chinese giant Geely previously teased us with a series of teasers demonstrating the future minivan, so far only known under the factory VF11 index. However, now the company has published an official photo, fully demonstrating the novelty.

Judging by the photos, a new segment leader with a stylish design, made in the corporate concept, will soon enter the market. The unique grille, the impetuous image created, including, due to the inclination of the windshield, the glazing line, as well as the soaring roof, immediately catches the eye.

Apparently, the car will be equipped with fully LED optics, including DRL. Also we were shown unique alloy wheels, approximately 18 inches. Of course, the third row of seats will be available.

According to some official information, it became known that a three-cylinder, 1.5-liter turbo engine capable of developing up to 177 horsepower, already known to us from Volvo models, can be used as a power unit. Together with him will work seven-speed automatic transmission.

It is possible that the model will also receive a hybrid installation, created on the basis of the motor JLH-3G15TD, working in tandem with an electric motor. Unfortunately, the details have not yet been disclosed, but company representatives report really low fuel consumption readings – 1.7 liters of gasoline per 100 km.

The length of the minivan Geely VF11 is 4,706 mm, width – 1,909 mm, height – 1,664 mm; the wheelbase is 2 805 mm. The platform used is still unknown. Chinese automotive publications suggest that it will be based on a new, actually developed platform. According to other versions, the familiar “CMA” cart will be used. Another group of experts is confident that a cheaper BMA platform will be used.

The car will be on sale by the end of 2018, but only in the home market. After that, the concern will continue to explore the interest and demand for the model in the international arena. Therefore, there is every chance that the novelty will appear in the domestic market.
