China gets a new EV brand

Chinese car maker Geely has launched a new high-end electric vehicle brand. The company’s Geometry cars are primarily intended for the domestic market but will also be available for export.

Geely is promising around 10 EVs across new segments by 2025, and says it has already racked up over 26,000 orders for the Geometry A, its very first model. At the top end, the A will have a range of up to 500kms on a single charge. The vehicle can charge from 30% to 80% in 30 minutes.

Geometry A starts at RMB210,000 ($31,200), rising to RMB250,000 in China.

The company states “Geometry is our answer to the future of the industry, a representation of our ideals, and a firm step into a beautiful new world.”

Geely recently announced a jv with Germany’s Daimler to next-gen Smart electric cars in China. The company owns LEVC, the UK-based maker of London black cabs.
