Geely Unveils Galaxy E8, Its First Pure Electric Sedan?

On November 17th, GEELY E8 made its public debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show. As the first pure electric sedan in the GEELY series, Galaxy E8 is built on the SEA framework, which also makes it the first pure electric sedan using the SEA architecture.

In terms of appearance, thanks to the highly expandable and flexible SEA framework, the Galaxy E8 adopted a unified glowing face design, and achieved a super-low drag coefficient of 0.199. These designs not only enhance the visual appeal of the vehicle, but also reflect the Galaxy series’ exploration and vision for future travel mode.

The vehicle interior is nothing short of stunning, equipped with a high-definition 45-inch 8K screen and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8295 chip, further enhancing the GEELY E8’s cockpit experience. At the same time, GEELY E8 also features a full-scene AI intelligent voice interaction that allows for full-scene wakeup free, full-page visible speaking, providing passengers with a rich entertainment and interactive experience.

In terms of power endurance, the new car uses 800V high-voltage fast charging technology, combined with silicon carbide electric drive, to achieve fast charging ability, and can provide about 180 kilometers of endurance for the vehicle within 5 minutes of charging. The maximum endurance mileage is 665 km. In addition, the model is also equipped with an independent suspension on all four wheels, offering a zero-to-one-hundred kilometers acceleration performance in 3.49 seconds and a top speed of 210 km/h, while maintaining a minimum turning radius of 5.62 meters. This demonstrates its strengths in terms of dynamic performance.

For safety, the Galaxy E8 utilizes multiple safety technologies of the SEA platform, including laser welding integrated boron-stiff door rings, battery anti-collision compartments, power transfer structures, aluminum alloy anti-collision beams, and high body torsional rigidity. These provide solid protection for the passengers. At the same time, the vehicle is equipped with an intelligent battery management system BMS, a battery safety system, and cloud monitoring, ensuring battery stability and safety.

In general, the debut of GEELY Galaxy E8 showcases GEELY’s latest R&D achievements and technical strength in the field of new energy vehicles while bringing to the market a pure electric sedan that combines high performance, high safety, and smart tech in one. With the continuous development of the new energy vehicle market, the Galaxy E8 may become a major trump card for GEELY in future market competition.
