The Chinese automaker Geely has unveiled its latest sedan, the Geely Galaxy L6, which promises to offer a range of up to 1300 km (808 miles), advanced AI features, and a futuristic design. The Galaxy L6 is part of Geely's new Galaxy series, which aims to create a "new generation of smart mobility products" that combine technology, ecology, and aesthetics.
The Geely Galaxy L6 is based on Geely's Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA), which is a modular and scalable platform that can accommodate various types of vehicles, from sedans and SUVs to sports cars and trucks. The SEA platform also supports different battery sizes, powertrains, wireless charging, and vehicle-to-grid capabilities.
According to Geely, the Galaxy L6 has a battery capacity of 150 kWh, which can be fully charged in 30 minutes using a fast charger. The sedan also has a dual-motor system that delivers a combined output of 400 kW (536 hp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. The Galaxy L6 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
AI Full-Scene Intelligent Interaction
One of the most distinctive features of the Geely Galaxy L6 is its AI full-scene intelligent interaction system, which uses voice, gesture, and facial recognition to provide a personalized and seamless driving experience. The system can adjust the cabin temperature, lighting, music, and navigation according to the driver's preferences and mood. It can also monitor the driver's health and alertness and provide safety reminders and assistance.
The Galaxy L6 also has a large curved screen that spans the entire dashboard and a holographic projection display that creates a 3D effect. The screen can display various information and functions like speed, battery level, driving mode, entertainment, and communication. The holographic display can project images of the navigation map, traffic conditions, or even virtual companions.
The design of the Geely Galaxy L6 is inspired by the concept of "cosmic aesthetics," which reflects Geely's vision of creating products that are in harmony with nature and the universe. The sedan has a sleek and aerodynamic shape, with sharp lines and curves that create a sense of movement and dynamism. The front fascia features a large grille with LED lights that form the shape of a galaxy, while the rear has a light bar that runs across the width of the car.
The Galaxy L6 also has gullwing doors that open upwards, giving it a futuristic and sporty look. The doors are equipped with sensors that detect obstacles and prevent collisions. The sedan's interior is spacious and minimalist, with leather seats and wood trim. The cabin also has ambient lighting that changes color according to the driving mode or the driver's mood.
Pricing and Availability
The Geely Galaxy L6 is expected to go on sale in China in late 2023, with a starting price of around 300,000 yuan ($46,500). Geely has not announced any plans to launch the sedan in other markets yet, but it has expressed its ambition to become a global leader in electric vehicles. Geely owns several brands, such as Volvo, Polestar, Lotus, Lynk & Co., and Smart, and has partnerships with Daimler, Baidu, Foxconn, and Tencent.
The Galaxy L6 is one of the many electric sedans that are emerging from China, such as the Nio ET7, the Xpeng P7, and the BYD Han. These sedans are competing not only with each other but also with established players like Tesla, which dominates the Chinese EV market with its Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y. The Geely Galaxy L6 may have an edge over its rivals with its impressive range, AI features, and design. Still, it remains to be seen how it will perform in terms of quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction.
