Geely FC-1 conceptThu, 03 Apr 2008 00:00:00 -0700
The third concept Geely is poised to reveal in Beijing will be the the FC-1, a station wagon-based CUV. With only a single side view image to judge from, the overall styling of the FC-1 displays a much faster and sleeker look than the other two, comparing to the GT concept's retro-organic and HL MPV's modern and simple design.
By targeting the CUV segment - the trendiest vehicle segment in the world today - the FC-1 concept depicts the least 'shock value' of the three concept vehicles, and it might just have the brightest and most realistic future of them all. With numerous styling clues - such as non-exaggerated wheelarch volume, more realistic side character surfaces, DLO proportion to the body and overall packaging - it is clear that FC-1 concept looks the most production ready of all three.
Geely Auto, with its ambitious plan to display 23 models and launch itself upmarket with these new releases at the forthcoming Auto China 2008, will be one of the most interesting brands to look out for.
