FX11 is based on the Vision Starburst concept which was unveiled in June 2021. The front end shows headlights that are vertically integrated into the bumper. There is an array of dashed lights with a lit-up Geely emblem in between, residing on top of a mesh grille giving the vehicle a very distinct & identifiable front end. The rear end features boomerang shaped LED lights connected by a full-width light bar.
It will ride on Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform which is the latest offering from Geely & is deployed in its small and compact-sized vehicles. The technology was jointly developed by Volvo and Geely under their China Euro Vehicle Technology AB (CEVT) R&D banner. Numerous vehicles under the Volvo, Geely, and Lynk & Co. brands are already using this platform.
The FX11 will be equipped with the new NordThor Hi-F gasoline-electric hybrid system, which already powers other recently launched Geely models, such as the L Thor Hi·X and Xingyue L Thor Hybrid. This is a strategic move by Geely to accelerate the shift towards electrification. The Geely FX11 is expected to make its public debut at the 2022 Chengdu Auto Show, which will open doors from 26th August 2022.
