Geely has released the most revealing official photos so far of its first global electric vehicle, the sedan codenamed GE11.
The Chinese automaker uploaded three photos of the new electric sedan on its Facebook page, accompanied by the description “Geely GE11 new car, new energy, new logo, new paradigm.”
When it first teased the GE11 in January, Geely didn’t share too many things about its first electric car other than the drag coefficient of 0.2375 and the fact that the model won’t be restricted to the Chinese market. As a matter of fact, the automaker says the GE11 is a globally developed product that “will begin to spearhead Geely’s efforts into entering overseas markets.”
On the outside, the GE11 adopts a fastback design, with highlights including a closed-off upper grille, sculpted front bumper, aero-style wheels, and horizontal elongated headlights and taillights. The electric car also adopts retractable door handles and debuts Geely’s new corporate logo which adopts a three-dimensional look and ditches the colors.
Thanks to additional patent photos from China, we can also spot the rear end design of the car and the interior. At the rear, the electric sedan features a ducktail spoiler and a chrome trim with “Geely” lettering that connects the taillights.
Inside, the car features a massive landscape-oriented touchscreen that dominates the dashboard, and a minimalist center console that only features a rotary controller for the infotainment system, the “ignition” button and parking brake/auto hold switches.
Going on sale in China in the first quarter of this year, the electric sedan is reportedly 4,736mm (186.5in) long, 1,804mm (71in) wide and 1,503mm (59.1in) tall, with a wheelbase of 2,700 mm (106.3 in). It’s powered by a 130kW (177PS) electric motor supplied by CATL that allows it to reach a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph).
