The premium sports sedan concept is based on the CMA modular platform from Volvo, which Geely owns. Designed in Geely Design Shanghai, Preface further develops Geely’s Expanding Cosmos aesthetics. Vice President of Geely Design Shanghai Guy Burgoyne commented:

“This is a continuation of Geely’s expanding cosmos design identity, reflecting that we have completed an orbit, but we are not simply going around again, we are sling-shotting ourselves forward, onwards to the next great challenge.”

The Preface concept is designed with strong proportions; a wide wheel track and balanced wheel to wheel arch relationship, resulting in both muscular shoulders and powerful fenders. The grille has been made wider and taller than on previous vehicles, allowing it to confidently separate the headlamps, whilst black vertical lines help create the image of a floating central logo. To accentuate its sporting attributes, a slight recess has been added to the grille, giving it an extra visual bite. Clamshell doors with frameless windows add a high-tech futuristic element to the model attracting the attention of a new generation of consumers.
