China is one of the world's largest and fastest-growing markets for electric vehicles (EVs). According to a report by BloombergNEF, China accounted for 41% of global EV sales in 2020, with 1.3 million units sold. The Chinese government has also set ambitious targets to increase the share of EVs in new car sales to 20% by 2025 and 50% by 2035.
With such a huge potential, many automakers are competing to launch new and innovative EV models in China. One of them is Geely, the largest privately-owned carmaker in China and the owner of brands such as Volvo, Lotus, and Polestar. Geely has recently unveiled its latest EV sedan, the Geely Galaxy L6, which aims to challenge the likes of Tesla Model 3, Nio ET7, and Xpeng P7.
The Geely Galaxy L6 is part of Geely's new Galaxy series, which also includes a compact SUV called Galaxy S1 and a mid-sized SUV called Galaxy S2. The Galaxy series is based on Geely's Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA), a modular and scalable platform that can support various types of EVs with different sizes, shapes, and performance levels.
The Geely Galaxy L6 is expected to go on sale in China in late 2023 or early 2024, with a starting price of around 250,000 yuan ($38,800). Here are some of the features and specifications that make the Geely Galaxy L6 stand out from the crowd.
The Geely Galaxy L6 has a sleek and futuristic design that reflects its high-tech nature. The front fascia features a slim grille with LED lights that form a "G" shape, representing Geely's logo. The side profile has a coupe-like silhouette with a sloping roofline and a fastback rear end. The rear fascia has a full-width LED light bar that connects the taillights and creates a distinctive signature.
The Geely Galaxy L6 has a length of 4.9 meters (16 feet), a width of 1.9 meters (6.2 feet), and a height of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet). It has a wheelbase of 3 meters (9.8 feet), which allows for a spacious cabin with ample legroom and headroom for five passengers. The trunk capacity is 510 liters (18 cubic feet), which can be expanded by folding down the rear seats.
The Geely Galaxy L6 comes in six colors: white, black, silver, blue, red, and green. It also offers various options for wheels, ranging from 18 inches to 21 inches in diameter.
