According to the official press release, Geely Icon, retaining the main features of the concept, which was presented at the international auto show in Beijing in 2018, embodies an improved design concept Geely "Expanding universe".
Specialists from different Geely design studios around the world worked on the Icon compact crossover: the exterior was designed in Barcelona, the interior-in California, and the final work was carried out in the Shanghai Studio. As a result, instead of the traditional off-road design, the car has acquired more minimalist and clear shapes.
The body of the production Geely Icon retained the distinct block structure of the concept car. In addition, the production Icon also has a rectangular horizontal grille, infinity loop headlights and thin led daytime running lights. The side profile with hidden retractable door handles and rear-view mirrors with integrated turn signals enhances the impression of the car, made in the style of high-tech. The rectangular-shaped taillights also have an infinity motif.
The interior is also made in a minimalist design. Thanks to this, the car has more free space. The Geely Icon has two large screens on the dashboard and a Central infotainment console. With these interactive screens, users can interact with the vehicle and connect to the rest of the world through GKUI's intelligent ecosystem.
The manufacturer, following the Eastern traditions, notes that the name of the Icon symbolizes both the beginning: it is an idol, a representative of the era, and the familiar icon of the application in digital devices. The choice of this name is intended to demonstrate Geely's confidence in its avant-garde design and technology as a symbol of the times.
