Geely officially discloses new global B-segment automobile modular architecture: BMA; new BMA-based SUV to launch this year

Automobile modular architectures—for example, TNGA of Toyota, and MQB, MLB and MEB of the Volkswagen Group—hav become a major trend in the auto industry. Modular technology has become an important criterion for evaluating whether an automobile company is combining global R&D technology and market layout with a cost-effective manufacturing approach.

Following the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) (earlier post) jointly developed with Volvo, Geely independently developed a new modular architecture, BMA (B-segment Modular Architecture).

The BMA platform will be applied in compact cars, including SUVs, sedans, MPVs, crossovers, and wagons.

Furthermore, the Geely BMA platform accommodates the Muti-Power system that carries 1.0TD, 1.4T, 1.5TD combustion engines, Plug-in Hybrid and Mild Hybrid Electric configurations.

A new SUV codenamed Geely SX11, which is based on the BMA platform, will be launched in the second half of 2018. Carrying the 1.5TD engine, it has a maximum power of 132 kW, while its maximum torque is 255 N·m.

The BMA platform will be applied to Geely’s overseas subsidiary brands as well as in China. Production based on BMA will be launched in EU, Eastern Europe, Africa, South America, Middle East and Southeast Asia.

Advancements in vehicle and battery construction techniques move very quickly from Japan/EU to China as it did (but slower) a few years ago to Japan and So-Korea.

Digital technologies and 3D printing will make it easier to move various technologies around the globe in a few days/months.

Countries with the most flexible, trained/trainable and abondant work force will have a real advantage.
