- New Black & Gold 2022 Geely Haoyue priced at RM 86k in China
- Tasteful addition of gold bits
- Same powertrain as before
Recently, Geely has took the covers off the new 2022 Geely Haoyue Black & Gold Edition, a new limited edition that’s priced at CNY 129,600 (~RM 86k).
As the name suggests, the Haoyue Black & Gold Edition gets a completely black paint job with gold bits tastefully tacked on. Gold finishing can be found on the vertical slats of the front grille, front fog light surrounds, sides, and wheels. A Black & Gold emblem can be found on the tailgate of this specific Haoyue variant.
Look closely and you’ll notice that this Haoyue Black & Gold gets a different pair of LED headlights too.
The same gold treatment is also carried into the cabin of the Haoyue, with gold finishing found on the door handles, air-conditioning vents, and centre console, giving the Haoyue a very classy appearance. The regular Haoyue gets silver finishing on the aforementioned parts.

It’s business as usual under the black bonnet of this Haoyue. A turbocharged 1.8-litre petrol engine that produces 184 PS at 5,500 rpm and 300 Nm from 1,750 rpm to 4,000 rpm is hooked up to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic – mirroring the Malaysian-spec Proton X70.

What about Malaysia?
It’s no secret that Proton has plans to introduce the Geely Haoyue as their own model, as several heavily-camouflaged prototypes have been spotted around town.

And it could even be called the Proton X90, in line with its current naming scheme. Said name was trademarked some time last year too, alongside the Proton X80 name.
Although the Haoyue / X90 is physically larger than the Proton X70, it cannot be priced too far from the latter, as the Haoyue / X90 isn’t as premium as Geely tries to portray it to be. Unlike other recently-launched Geely models, the Haoyue is not developed on the BMA or CMA platform, but rather a curiously-named CV platform. The CV platform made its debut on the Geely Jiaji.
While the CV platform is newer than the Boyue's NL3 platform (Boyue was launched in 2016), it is not as sophisticated as the Binyue / X50's BMA platform.
