The Chinese automobile giant Geely just revealed their flashiest concept car, namely the “Geely Vision Starburst”.
Have a look!
“In its conceptual design form, bursting energy and constant outward tension result in a twisted profile with curved surfaces that appear to rotate and stretch, in its details, the design takes inspiration from stellar rays and waves in the folding and crossing of lines and surfaces” – Geely of their all new Vision Starburst. Apparently the entire design of the vehicle is inspired from an “Expanding Cosmos” design philosophy.
Fun fact : Those illuminated wheel arcs change colors according to the vehicle’s status. For example if the car is is motion the wheels would radiate a color to represent the motion, and while on charging or on parking the wheels glow different colors correspondingly.
In a layman’s point of view, I would say Geely has done quite a great job in making their concept car look as futuristic as possible with its Tesla Model X like gullwing doors and a front that almost resembles a hybrid form between a Lexus and the Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV which would roll out the next year.
For the uninitiated, Geely is a Chinese automobile giant that has got deep pockets into the EV industry – they practically own Volvo, Polestar and Lotus Cars.
Having said that, there is no mention of the electric powertrain for their new concept, but an educated guess would be that it would be as swanky as the design, given their record and their rapid electrification strategies on the sub-brands. Polestar itself is growing pretty massive in the EV market.
Hold your horse though, this car isn’t going to make it to production, however this entire project reflects on Geely’s vision for the future. What do you think about the Starburst? Leave a comment below.
