After taking over Volvo, three years ago, Geely tried to become a serious manufacturer, who refuses to copy European cars design, creating instead its own philosophy.
The latest demonstration is the GC9 high end model, set to be unveiled on November 20, during this year Guangzhou Motor Show in China. The new flagship sedan was already anticipated by the KC Concept, unveiled last year during Shanghai Motor Show.
According to Geely, the new GC9 is “the most ambitious vehicle to date in terms of design, technology, safety and driving dynamics.”
The car is also the first to be developed by automotive design industry veteran Peter Horbury who previously led the Volvo design team before moving to Geely Auto in 2012.
It features Geely’s new global design language that will eventually be rolled out onto a new generation of Geely cars. Their design will be created simultaneously in Sweden, Barcelona, California, Hangzhou and Shanghai global design centers.
The all-new GC9 sedan was inspired by ancient Chinese stone bridges which were integrated into the dashboard and central area. Horbury also used the side profile of jet fighters and supercars as an inspiration.
