Default Geely launches Geometry EV brand to rival Tesla

Chinese company Geely Auto Holdings has announced an all-electric brand called Geometry. The company has also revealed its first model under the new brand called Geometry A. It offers upto 500 km of range on a single charge and will be priced between US$ 31,250 and US$ 37,200 in China.

The Geometry A gets sweptback headlights with DRL lights, C-shaped design on the bumper edges and a hexagonal air dam at the front. The side profile reveals a strong shoulder line, flush-sitting door handles, creases on the lower part of the doors and petal design alloy wheels. At the back it gets slim tail lamps and a dual tone bumper.

The insides get a two-colour theme in black and beige with some grey elements, dual spoke multi-function steering wheel, a large touchscreen infotainment, fully digital driver MID and a head-up display.

The powertrain is rated at 161 BHP and 250 Nm of torque. The standard range car comes with a 51.9 kWh battery while the long-range model comes with a 61.9 kWh module. The company claims NEDC ranges of 410 km and 500 km respectively. The 0-100 km/h time is claimed to be 8.8 seconds while the battery can be fast-charged from 30%-80% in half an hour.

Some of the safety features include ESP, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, intelligent high beam control, a roof with weight bearing capacity of 4.12 times its own weight and a 100-0 km/h braking distance of 37.1 meters. It is also equipped with a 360-degree camera system along with adaptive cruise control, front and rear collision warning, lane change assist and blind spot detection amongst others.

Geely claims that they have already received 27,000 orders for the Geometry A, of which, 18,000 are from Singapore, Norway, France etc. Geely plans to launch 10 new electric models under the Geometry brand by 2025.

Looks interesting. Could give the Teslas a run for its money if they have the logistics and after sales network. More competition is always welcome, will be good for everyone.

Wonder when Indian car makers come up with a product like this, an EV with a range of ~500 km, and the required infrastructure along our highways.... Surely we will get there
