This year, the Belarusian Belgee plant (a joint venture between the government of a neighboring country and Geely) launched its own brand – Belgee. The first-born was the X50 crossover, that is, the “import-substituted” Geely Coolray of the 2018 model with a different emblem and nameplates. In its production homeland, the “fifty” officially started in August, and now such a cross has come to Russia. Our Belgee X50 sales are handled by the Russian division of Geely, and the original Coolray is still in service. However, the original Gili SUV, apparently, will soon leave the Russian market: it should be replaced by a restyled model, which may be supplied directly from China. But more on that below.

The Belarusian crossover is offered in three trim levels – Active, Style and Prestige. The equipment is generally the same as that of the Coolrey, only the versions of the Geely model are called differently (Comfort, Luxury, Flagship), in addition, the donor SUV also has a fourth option (Flagship Sport), it is distinguished by a two-tone color, as well as an extended “carbon fiber” finish “and the presence of a “sports” spoiler.

Well, now let's move on to the future restyling of the original Geely SUV. A few days ago, the Russian office of the brand posted a post on its social media pages with a survey – which new model is most expected in the Russian Federation? Among the proposed options was Coolray, and the message was accompanied by a teaser of a restyled crossover. And if this image was not used only as an illustration, then, apparently, they are going to bring the Geely Coolray to us after the second modernization, that is, the 2022 model.
