Patent Office of China registered design of future crossover of the company Geely, which now is known only by its factory index SX11. The appearance and the interior of the model are the work of former chief designer at Volvo - Peter Horbury, who now works for Geely.

However, this is not a surprise because the Chinese corporation owns Volvo. Moreover, future SUV-model is built on a completely new platform developed by both carmakers.
