The KC concept is a fastback based sedan with its total length reaching 4690mm
and a wheelbase of 2880mm. The exterior design borrows heavily from classical
Chinese history points, from the front observers will note the strong shoulder
lines that flow over the front wheel arch to give a sense of speed and
elegance whilst the wide stance gives a feeling of strength and confidence in
the vehicle. The KC makes use of daylight running lights to further enhance
the strong lines, the headlights and grill combine to form a unified graphic
which gives the impression of distinctive stone bridges which feature heavily
in classical Chinese art. The fog lamps also take design cues from classical
Chinese art, with them being similar in style to Chinese ornamentation to give
a functional and aesthetic appeal.

The interior continues to reflect on traditional Chinese artwork with its
refined and elegant dashboard that are intersected by the instrument panel,
arching the style of a traditional stone bridge. The instrument panel,
steering wheel and door arm rests merge into one as if there were a curling
book page giving a light and airy atmosphere in the cabin with the central
console arching back into the rear passenger area. The seating area radiates
an elegant, relaxing mood whilst floating on bridge like supports whilst the
material again looks back to traditional Chinese styling with asymmetric
overlapping folds. Geely's design team have looked towards luxury materials
such as jade, fine red wood and ambient lighting to increase the sense of
interior quality, with overly contrasting warm-white and traditional dark red
Chinese elements to create a dignified atmosphere in both the front and rear
of the concept model to give a clean and clear interior appearance.

The KC Concept is a product of the the first joint project by Geely's recently
appointed Vice President of Design Mr. Peter Horbury and Design Director Mr.
Ken Ma, both designers are veterans of the global automotive industry and will
continue to work together to develop world class cars for the Geely brands.
