2022 Geely Binyue - using Volvo XC40's CMA platform | Car in China



Starting price: $16,673 USD

The new Binyue uses a more dynamic color scheme to create a sense of fashion. There are 5 body colors to choose from, including explosive yellow, hot flame red, storm blue, thunder gray and lightning white; the new car uses new energy storm front design, sports two-color body, black borderless front grille, X-shaped energy overflow front guard, C-shaped energy fog lights, power-pulse trim, black sports wheels and double-layer three-dimensional rear wing design, the overall shape has been renewed, and the new dynamic red and black interior has been upgraded And the interior is yellow and The newly added Jinxiang black fully embodies the sporty atmosphere of the new Binyue as a sports car.




First launched in China in 2016, the Geely Boyue, better known to Malaysians as the Proton X70, is now in its fifth year of life.


A replacement is due soon, at least for China. During a presentation to Geely investors in November, Geely Automobile Holdings Limited shared that it will announce at least four new models in 2021, among them the second generation Geely Boyue based on the platform. New CMA.

Considering that Geely's announcement comes in the context of the 'preliminary new product' keyword, we don't expect the all-new second-generation Geely Boyue to be launched until 2022.

So far, the Chinese media has very little information regarding the second generation Boyue. In fact, this is the first information regarding the new Boyue. Ironically, it came from Geely herself.

When will the second generation Proton X70 be released?
The current-generation Proton X70 only started production in Malaysia at the Tanjung Malim plant in late 2019, ahead of a February 2020 launch, just before MCO/CMCO ruined the company's predictions.

We expect the current Proton X70 to remain in production for at least another 5 years, which also means we'll skip the new generation Geely Boyue and go straight to the facelifted version instead, possibly is around 2025.




What is the CMA platform?



The current Geely Boyue, which Malaysians will know as the Proton X70, is built on Geely's proprietary NL platform, which has since been replaced by the newer generation BMA and CMA platforms.

The BMA platform is used by the Proton X50. The more expensive CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) platform is used by the Volvo XC40 and Polestar 2.

In other words, the next Geely Boyue will be the first Proton that you can tell is actually a Volvo underneath.

The CMA platform is essentially a simpler version of the SPA (Scalable Platform Architecture) platform used by the Volvo 60 and 90 models - the XC90, S90, XC60 and S60.

The biggest difference between the CMA and SPA platforms is that CMA cars cannot be equipped with an electric motor to drive the rear wheels, otherwise known as ERAD (Electric Rear Axle Drive) in Volvo terms. However, it can still perform full-time mechanical all-wheel drive normally.


2022 Geely Binyue




The new generation Geely Boyue 2022 will definitely ditch the current (and old) 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in favor of a newer, cleaner and economical 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine. More fuel is used by Proton X50. In fact, export variants of the Proton X70 were equipped with a smaller 1.5-liter engine.

The new generation Boyue will certainly be offered as a mild hybrid or a plug-in hybrid. China's stricter emissions standards could also mean that only hybrid versions will be sold in China, while internal combustion engine versions will only be used in domestic markets. less developed countries like Malaysia.

Higher semi-autonomous driving capabilities are also expected. Geely is a major player in driverless cars and car-sharing services. The current Proton X70 lacks adaptive cruise control and semi-autonomous parking capabilities, which newer CMA-powered vehicles can do.
