Geely’s Most Long-Awaited Sedan Is Unveiled in Official Photos

Geely has published official photos of the new Preface, which will be released by the end of 2020.

The 2020 Geely Preface is a production continuation of the concept with the same name presented at last year's auto show in Shanghai. Earlier this year, photospies came across a prototype. In July, Geely published the first official teasers of the new sedan. The new model will be released under the local name in China. The name ‘Preface’ is used for global market.

The model is based on the CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) developed by Geely in collaboration with Volvo. It is used for most of the Lynk&Co model line, the Geely Xingyue/FY11 and the Volvo XC40. Thanks to a leak from the database of the Ministry of Industry of China, the dimensions of the model are already known. With a wheelbase of 2800 mm, the new sedan reaches 4,785 mm in length, 1,869 mm in width and 1,469 mm in height. Among other Geely models, the vehicle is assigned a place between the Emgrand GL and the flagship Borui.

Retaining the overall style of the show car, the production Geely Preface has lost frameless windows, rear-view cameras and suicide doors. They are replaced with more conventional ones. There are no official photos of the interior yet. Presumably, it will be as minimalistic as the concept.
