Chinese producer Geely has partially unveiled its new compact SUV, called the Bo Yue.

First of all, the company explains the name of the car means “easily win”. It has been selected through an online competition among the brand’s fans in web forums and the Weibo social network. In total, 1.26 million people voted in the online poll. Geely says an English name has yet to be chosen.

Technical details regarding the model are not available at the moment, but it will be the first Chinese vehicle to gain Apple CarPlay technology. Geely says it will also be the company’s “most technology packed vehicle to date” and represents plans to “focus ever more on the integration of internet technologies”.

We have only three images of the model so far, showing an European design language with muscular side profile, athletic wheel arches and a front end featuring the company’s distinctive radiator grille, also seen in the GC9.

The Geely Bo Yue will be launched in the first quarter of 2016 with its English name and technical specification expected to be announced prior to launch.
