Beijing '08 Preview: Geely GE MPV concept

When it comes to new Chinese debuts set for Beijing next month, the steady drip of photos accompanied by little to know info continues apace. The latest is another MPV study from Geely, which will have eighteen vehicles scattered about the show floor. Geely might call this an MPV, but everything we see screams "crossover!" Note the high ground clearance and tall-wagon bodystyle -- elements which pretty much define the segment. It's hard to judge the styling based on a single profile shot, but here again we have a vehicle that looks like it's not going to have anyone pointing and snickering. The shape of the side glass adds a bit of flair, and the wraparound LED taillamps seem to finish the rear off pretty nicely. We'll have to sit tight and wait for more photos and tech specs, but between this, the HL, and the GT, Geely appears to be putting together a show lineup that's going to be worth at least a serious look.

UPDATE: New name! Autoblog Chinese now reports that this is called the FC-1 Wagon concept.
