It will be used to sell budget electric cars. The first candidate is already there.

Geely is about to revive its Maple brand. The automaker acquired it in 2002 and used it until 2010. After that, cars under this brand disappeared. The revived brand will be used for budget electric cars. According to Autonews.com, the first in the lineup of the brand will be the 30X compact crossover. The first cars were already assembled at a factory in Nantong, China.

The length of the crossover will be 4,405 mm with a wheelbase of 2,480 mm. The width of the car is 1,760 mm, the height is 1,575 mm. The power reserve of the electric car is already known – without recharging it can overcome 306 kilometers. Prices will be announced closer to the start of sales. Maple cars were also sold in the domestic car market.

Of the remarkable milestones in the history of the brand, participation in the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005 can be noted – then the Chinese company presented the Marindo sedan.

 However, it was not possible to develop a good start for the company, and after 2010, many forgot about it. It is not yet known in which markets Maple cars will be sold. Initially, there were suggestions that the car was planned to be sold in Europe, but for this purpose a more representative Geometry brand will most likely be involved.
