Geely continues the expansion of its product lineup in the Chinese market with the launch of a new car: the Borui GE.
According to Xincheping, it is a plug-in hybrid version of the Borui range and combines a three-cylinder 1.5-liter direct-injected petrol unit with an electric motor and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The internal combustion unit comes from Volvo, where it already powers the XC40 T3. Moreover, it will eventually be adopted by the Swedish company’s upcoming electrified models of the 40 series, and by the certain Lynk vehicles.
No specs have been announced yet, as the new Geely Borui GE will make its official debut on April 9 before going on sale locally in mid-summer. However, the local media talks about a very impressive combined fuel consumption of just 1.5 l/100 km (156.8 US mpg / 188.3 UK mpg).
In the cabin, it gets a massive infotainment system, with a 12.2-inch touchscreen display that provides access to various functions. Other features include wireless charging for smartphones, ambient lighting and various LED decorations. Despite the generous screen added in the middle of the dashboard, Geely chose not to offer a digital instrument cluster, probably to keep costs down.
