Geely's Hybrid Push: Fuelling the Future of Sustainable Driving

By Staff Writer, 29 May 2024

Geely Holding Group, a prominent automotive manufacturer based in China, has announced plans to introduce a range of hybrid vehicles in the first half of next year. These upcoming models will feature the company's latest engine technology, designed to enhance fuel efficiency.

According to a certificate issued by CATARC Huacheng Certification Co., a government-owned entity, Geely's new engine achieves an impressive thermal efficiency of up to 46.1%. This places it among the most efficient engines globally and promises to significantly reduce fuel consumption while extending the driving range of these hybrid vehicles.

The introduction of these hybrid models is part of Geely's strategy to bolster its product lineup. The vehicles will be launched under the Galaxy series of Geely Auto and the Lynk & Co brand. Geely aims to capitalize on the growing popularity of plug-in hybrids in China, driven by their affordability and environmental benefits.

The move comes amid increasing competition in the Chinese automotive market, particularly in the realm of alternative fuel vehicles. With plug-in hybrids emerging as the fastest-growing segment, manufacturers are striving to innovate and capture market share in this lucrative sector. Geely's focus on fuel efficiency and cutting-edge technology underscores its commitment to meeting the evolving demands of consumers and contributing to a more sustainable future.
