The Geely HQ ("Haoqing" (豪情)) is a hatchback automobile from Chinese manufacturer, Geely Automobile. It was the first Geely product, introduced in February 1998. Originally a 993 cc Daihatsu three cylinder or a 1,342 cc Toyota inline four were offered, with 52 PS (38 kW) or 86 PS (63 kW) respectively.[1]

The HQ is based on the G100 Daihatsu Charade platform, which Geely licensed from FAW Tianjin. Its basic underpinnings are shared with the Merrie/Uliou and Rural/Urban Nanny.

The HQ was given an update in 2003 and was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005 along with the Geely MR, Geely CK, Geely CD and the Maple Marindo.

Production ended in 2006.
