Geely's explosive sales, powered by crossovers, roll on
Automotive News China | 2018/6/12

Sales at Geely Automobile Holdings, the largest domestic Chinese passenger vehicle maker, continue to forge ahead on strong crossover volume. 

The company¡¯s May deliveries in China surged 61 percent year on year to 123,068 vehicles.

Sales of Geely-badged crossovers totaled 62,473 vehicles during the month.

Lynk & CO, a premium brand Geely Auto unveiled last year, delivered 9,234 01 compact crossovers, its only model.

Combined sales of crossovers under the Geely and Lynk & CO brands totaled 71,707, accounting for 58.3 percent of Geely Auto¡¯s May deliveries.

In the first five months, Geely Auto delivered 638,181 vehicles, a jump of nearly 44 percent from the same period last year. 

On May 28, Geely Auto launched sales of a new flagship sedan that features powertrain technologies the company developed with Volvo Car Corp. 

The compact car, the Borui GE, offers two powertrains: a plug-in hybrid and a gasoline model fitted with a 48-Volt system.

Geely Auto, based in the east China city of Hangzhou and listed in Hong Kong, is a subsidiary of Zhejiang Geely Holding Group. Geely Holding also owns Volvo Car.
