D er Chinese automaker Geely has announced the creation of a new, all-electric car brand. It's called Geometry and also presented its first model. The Geometry A, which was initially rumored as the Geely GE 11, appears as a sedan in the mid-range format. For the Geometry A, around 27,000 pre-orders - over 18,000 of them from abroad (Singapore, Norway, France) - should already be received. By 2025 Geely wants to offer more than ten all-electric models under its new label. The focus of the new brand is clearly on China, but other world markets are also to be served.
Extremely aerodynamic design
The Geometry A, the first all-electric Geely since the Emgrand EV in the year 2015, has a closed front, front headlights that extend to the front wheel arches and door handles integrated in the door that only come out when approaching. The limousine is just under 4.70 meters long, 1.80 meters wide and 1.50 meters high. The wheelbase should be 2.70 meters. The very flat windshield, in conjunction with the elongated bonnet and the curved rear, should ensure a drag coefficient of 0.2375 (Tesla Model 3: 0.23 /Hyundai Ionic: 0.24 /VW e-Golf: 0.27) .
Up to 500 kilometers range
The Geometry A is driven by a 120 kW and 250 Nm electric motor via the front wheels. In the basic version, energy is provided by a 51.9 kWh battery. In addition, a long-range variant with a capacity of 61.9 kWh is to be offered. From a standing start, the electric sedan should be able to accelerate from zero to 100 km /h in 8.8 seconds. The maximum speed is limited to 150 km /h. Ranges between 410 (base) and 500 kilometers (long range) are mentioned. Loading times have not yet been mentioned.
In the cockpit, the Geometry A relies on almost fully digital operation. There is a display in front of the driver and a large touchscreen on top of the dashboard. In addition to a rotary push button, the center console also has haptic control elements. Otherwise, the interior is styled relatively conservatively. The driver can configure the vehicle extensively and block or restrict various functions for other users. Of course, the Geometry A can be fully networked with the smartphone.
Geely mentions the equivalent of around 27,700 euros as the China price for the Geometry A. Prices for export were not mentioned.
