Geely unveils EC7-EV image

The Chinese based automaker Geely has recently unveiled the EC7-EV, which has been co-developed with Detroit Electric, for the local auto market.

The newest creation signed by Geely is named the EC7-EV, and the model has been developed in collaboration with Detroit Electric. The model has been produced with the Chinese auto market in mind, where it should arrive, in the company’s dealerships, early next year. Geely plans to sell 3,000 units of the EC7-EV in 12 months after its launch and the figure is expected to grow up to 30,000 units, in the first three years.

“Detroit Electric will jointly develop the EC7-EV, covering all aspects of the powertrain and chassis, safety, vehicle dynamics, system integration, NVH and other items. We have been working alongside Geely for some time to optimise the EV drive technologies for integration into the vehicles and this partnership will now fast-track both Geely and Detroit Electric to realising the great EV market potential in the Chinese market”, said the Detroit Electric Group CEO and chairman, Albert Lam.

The Geely EC7-EV is based on the EC7, and the model is coming with an electric motor, with an advanced battery pack with medium and long range options, of 165 km (102 miles) and 258 km (160 miles), and with a twin-speed gearbox. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is expected to be made in less than 8 seconds and top speed should stand at just over 200 km/h (124 mph). Additional details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
