The novelty should get a battery that will provide a cruising range of up to 580 km, most likely in the WLTP cycle. As for the date of appearance of Lambda, it will be released in 2022, in turn, the start of sales is scheduled for 2023. It is noted that the production of cross will be set up at the new enterprise of the Geely concern in the Chinese city of Wuhan, which will be able to produce up to 150,000 vehicles per year.
