As previously reported the Geely Galaxy E5 uses a 11-in-1 intelligent electric drive system. This integrates 11 major devices such as motors, electronic controls and reducers and we now know that the weight is 79.8 kg and the volume is just 72 liters. Comprehensive efficiency is up to 90.04% and power consumption is as low as 11.9 kWh per 100 km while the motor itself has peak power of 160 kW. Furthermore, the drive uses an Infineon TC397 chip to enable high communication efficiency and fast power response.

As we have previously reported the Geely Galaxy E5 uses Geely Electric Architecture (GEA) platform, which is derived from the Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA). Interestingly GEA can be utilized for EV, EREV, PHEV, and green methanol powertrains. In addition, the E5 has CTB integrating the battery into the body which helps with rigidity. There is also a G-TCS all-weather drive anti-skid system. Thanks to such systems the official moose test speed is 78 km/h.
