Geely Galaxy G7 Is An EV That Could Be A PROTON

Geely Automotive Group has just shown their latest electric SUV, the Galaxy G7.

Geely has now launched a new high-end electrified series, the Geely Galaxy range, at a flagship event in Hangzhou, China. The first car from the Geely Galaxy series is the Galaxy L7 long-range Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) SUV and it was unveiled along with a fully electric concept model.

The Geely Galaxy G7 is paired to the NordThor three-speed dedicated hybrid transmission (DHT) with the NordThor hybrid powertrain offering the best combination of performance and fuel economy and gives the car a top speed of 200km/h and century sprint time of 7.5 seconds.

On top of that, since the Geely Galaxy G7 is not yet fully on the road, real world fuel consumption for the long-range EV SUV has been tested and the numbers are apparently rated at 5.23L/100km which if true, means the car could go 1,370km on a single tank in hybrid driving conditions.

On top of that, the Galaxy series features the new Galaxy N-Operating System, an operating system that was developed in line with Smart Geely 2025 strategy under which Geely is focusing heavily on self developed chips, operating systems, intelligent cloud computing and satellite networks to secure the future of the brand.

The Geely Galaxy G7 runs on the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8155 vehicle chip, the Galaxy N OS allows its models to have the fastest system startup and response time in its class, only taking 0.5 seconds to reach a ready operational state. This is going to be a game changer especially for owners of slightly older cars with older OS and chips.

So with all this, we can conclude that the Geely Galaxy G7 and the series as a whole is set to bring the fight over to luxury carmakers as it is most likely going to undercut their prices. So now the only question is, will Geely rebadge some of these Galaxy vehicles as Proton cars? I think it is a bit unlikely but we shall have to wait and see.
