China’s Geely has launched a new ‘Premium’ electric car brand – Geometry – with their first new car revealed as the Geometry A.
Geely seems to be on a mission to take over the car world, with big fingers in many, many pies, including Volvo, Lotus, Lynk & Co, London Taxi, Smart and more.
Now you can add to Geely’s offerings with a new ‘Premium’ electric car brand with the arrival of ‘Geometry’, promising a range of 10 new EVs by 2025.
Having used the simple ’01’ on up monikers for the Lynk & Co brand, Geely has decided Geometry will use similarly well thought out monikers too, so the first of Geometry’s new models is the Geometry A. Expect Geometry B to J in the next few years.
The standard Geometry A comes with a 51.7kWh battery pack with 255 miles of range, with a long-range version boasting a 61.9kWh battery pack and a range of more than 300 miles, both with the same electric motor good for 161bhp and 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. Geely say a top-up of electric from 30-80 per cent will take half an hour.
Geely has nicked a few bits from Volvo for the ‘A’, including a speed-limiting key, as well as safety stuff like collision warning, Lane Keep, Blind Spot and adaptive cruise. Despite that, it looks like the Geometry A is more Geely than Volvo.
Geely say they already have 27,000 orders for the new Geometry, and two-thirds of those are sales to markets outside China, including France and Norway.
The Geometry A available in RHD, but there’s no confirmation on whether or not the UK is a target market.
