Geely’s GE11 Global Electric Sedan Revealed In Official And Leaked Photos

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).

    The proportions look really awkward, with huge front and rear overhangs.

    Thought it was a redesigned Lincoln MKZ before I read it.

    Exterior looks trendy but yea proportions are economy car-like. Impressive interior design – almost straight out of a concept car.

  • charlotteharry57

    The proportioning on this thing is off. Can’t put my finger on it, but it’s one strange bird. The interior is bizarro as well. Aside from the too-big screen, the center console is strange, unless you use square or triangular cups. Guess the Chinese aren’t up to our standards yet.

      It is not just you! If you look at the profile, the front axle is clearly pushed back wayy too much, which makes a huge front overhang, visually making the car appear like it does not want to move forward. It is a classic problem of FWD cars, but this particular one does a pretty bad job trying to hide it. Compare it to the German sedans which excel at this and it is easy to understand the proportions issue.

      In design, FWD cars try to “hide” the front overhang by adding vents on the side that go way back in the front bumper. The new Peugeot 508 is a great example of this gimmick to make the car looks sportier.

      I got a strong hint of Last-Gen Dodge Dart from the D-pillar back.

      My fiorst though was a Toyota Mirai and previous gen Ford Focus sedan had a love child, but this looks so generic, one can see any not overly exciting sedan design in it.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…..
    And the company logo looks like a door release handle.

    Skoda Scala interior.

    • Miknik

      Nope, it has a central screen like a Tesla 3 if anything, and the whole theme of the dashboard is very different to the Scala; That said, the Scala interior was not exactly the first one to mount a “glued on iPad” screen above the AC vents, so do a lot of Hyundais and Fords, among others. VAG is probably among the last to join that trend…
