Geely Auto Group's new energy vehicle (NEV) sub-brand, Geely Galaxy, began pre-sales of its second model, the L6, at the Chengdu auto show, which began today.

The Geely Galaxy L6 is a compact plug-in hybrid sedan available in four variants with starting prices ranging from RMB 128,000 ($17,560) to RMB 158,000.

The Geely Galaxy L6 measures 4,782 mm in length, 1,875 mm in width and 1,489 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,752 mm.

There are two versions of the car's battery-powered range, with CLTC ranges of 60 km and 125 km, respectively, and their combined WLTC ranges of 1,320 km and 1,370 km on a full tank of fuel and a full charge, respectively.

Geely officially launched the new lineup Geely Galaxy on February 24 and announced its first production model, the L7 SUV.

Geely Galaxy plans to launch a cumulative total of seven models by 2025, including four plug-in hybrid models in the L-series and three pure-electric models in the E-series.

In the all-electric lineup, Geely Galaxy will launch the Galaxy E8 in the fourth quarter of 2023, the Galaxy E7 in the second quarter of 2024 and the Galaxy E6 in the third quarter of 2024.

The L7 has already been launched on May 31 and is available in five versions with a starting price of RMB 138,700.

Like the L7, the Geely Galaxy L6 is based on the e-CMA architecture and is fitted with a 1.5T engine that can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds.

One of China's largest car companies, Geely Galaxy is the lineup Geely used to target the mass market, after the initial success of the brand in the premium segment.

Under the Geely Auto umbrella, the Geely brand currently targets the low-end internal combustion engine car market and the Geometry brand targets the low- to mid-range pure EV market. The Lynk & Co brand, which is jointly held by Geely Auto and Volvo Car, targets the mid- to high-end hybrid and internal combustion engine car market, and Zeekr targets the high-end EV market.
