Geely Electric Cars



I thought we had discussed this, but search did not turn up anything. It is supposed to have a 410 km range for $22,321 and a 500 km range for $25,298. That is 255 and 311 miles, respectively. They say they have received 27,000 orders and 18,000 are from overseas, but they mention European countries. They say it is a matter of time before it comes to the U.S., but there is not any mention of how much it would cost. People comment that the outside is bland, but the interior is pretty modern: https://jalopnik.com/while-all-of-yo...chi-1833985087

These - and other brands - had better come to north america, or there will be no affordable electric cars for when they pull the plug on gasoline car sales in 15+ years.

Even by 2030 doe projects only 10% of new car sales will be plug in capable. They think a large portion of those plug in cars will be plug in hybrids that can still burn gas.
We could speculate that maybe by 2030 the plug in market share could possibly double, but thats pretty wild speculation.

Hahaha. Pull the plug. Intended pun or happy coincidence?

Unintentional as I typed it, but enjoyed the irony right after.

Looks promising, but the front-end looks a bit odd.

The trouble with these things is that they double in price when they cross the ocean.

The Chinese cars “look” the role but the ones that have come over are horribly unreliable compared to even Dodge,
They just aren’t built for American travel beyond appearance.

Are they getting better?
Sure but still aren’t built to the spec Americans expect

Depends. If you're comparing them to the best of the Japanese, definitely.

Comparing them to American- or European-designed cars, they fare better (well, particularly since the Chinese pirate engineering talent primarily from Europe...)

We have already had about a half dozen Chinese cars come over the ocean all have been underwhelming with rather severe levels of major failures.
Wheego, BYD, Miles, Kandi, Greatland, and other Chinese companies have already tried selling their EVs here and all have ended up as projects in diyelectriccar forums because of their epic failure rates of basic components

Until they import cars in significant numbers and stay in business long enough to support them we won’t know if they can do better than their other recent offerings here
