Recently, Geely released a teaser image of its brand-new upcoming Galaxy L6 plug-in hybrid sedan. Geely will officially unveil the car on June 15th. The official launch and delivery start dates are set for the third quarter of this year. Once on the market, it will compete with the BYD Qin Plus DM-i models.
Earlier in May, the Galaxy L6 was spotted on the Chinese streets without camo.
Same to the powertrain of the Galaxy L7, the powertrain of the Galaxy L6 is expected to be the NordThor Hybrid 8848, which is equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine, a 3-speed DHT, and a P1+P2 dual-motor electric drive with a combined power of 287 kW. The combined power of the super performance version will reach 488 kW. Additionally, Geely Galaxy L6’s fuel consumption per 100 km may be around 5L, and the comprehensive cruising range may exceed 1,300 km.
Within the past five years, several Chinese automakers have successively launched new hybrid technologies, including BYD’s DM-i, Great Wall Motors’ Lemon Hybrid DHT, Chang’an’s iDD hybrid, and Chery’s Kunpeng Hybrid. Geely claimed that its NordThor Hybrid 8848 is directly targeting BYD’s DM hybrid technology with an engine thermal efficiency of 46%, as verified in Geely’s laboratory; and capable of realizing 20 driving modes.
Earlier this year, at the Geely Galaxy brand launch conference, the carmaker revealed that its Galaxy smart electric hybrid L series will launch two new models in 2023. So far, the first model – Galaxy L7, has already been launched, and the Galaxy L6 will launch in the third quarter of 2023. After the launch (probably on September 23 based on the teaser image), the price of the Galaxy L6 is expected to be between 100,000 – 150,000 yuan (13,900 – 20,900 USD).
We’ll watch closely for new information about the car, stay tuned!
