Geely unveils Okavango three-row crossoverOctober 17, 2020
The car will be intended for export to other countries. In China, this crossover is called HaoYue. However, the two cars are different.
Geely has unveiled a new seven-seater crossover Okavango, which will debut in the Philippine auto market. Externally, the novelty will not receive too many differences from the HaoYue crossover, which is sold in China, but the technical equipment will be completely different. The crossover is the largest in the brand’s lineup and demonstrates a good level of sales – from the beginning of July to the end of September in China, it sold 18,552 copies.
There are no official photos of the new Okavango yet, so it’s difficult to say for sure about the differences in the exterior. However, one of the brand’s dealers in the Philippines showed teasers of the novelty, according to which it can be concluded that the two cars are very similar. The difference was the new LED running lights. Based on the HaoYue model, the novelty will receive a length of 4,835 mm with a distance between the axes of 2,815 mm.
There will be seven seats in the car, but it is still unknown whether customers will be offered a basic five-seat version.
The main innovation will be the appearance of a hybrid power plant at Geely Okavango, which was developed in tandem with Volvo. It is based on a 1.5-liter turbo engine and is complemented by an electric motor on the rear axle and a 48-volt starter-generator. The total engine power is 190 hp. Its main advantages will be high efficiency and good economy.
Of the equipment, we note the presence of climate control for 3 zones, a panoramic roof and matrix headlights. Intelligent cruise control, collision avoidance, blind spot and lane control systems are responsible for safety. The dashboard has received a digital design, and there is also room for a head-up display in the cabin. Acceptance of orders for a new car will start on Saturday, October 17th.
