Geely Xingyue coupe SUV 2019 model

Geely’s first coupe SUV, code-named FY11 internally, has been officially named “Xingyue”, the automaker announced on February 22.

The new model, based on the CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) platform that is jointly developed by Geely and Volvo, is named after a main-belt asteroid between Mars and Jupiter that was discovered at the Lijiang Observatory, Yunnan observatories of CAS by a Geely-owned astronomer team. Geely said it has filed an application to the International Astronomical Union for naming the newly-discovered star “Xingyue” and its new coupe SUV will be the world’s only one vehicle model that features the same name as an asteroid.
