Geely, which is known officially as the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co., Ltd, is a Chinese car company based in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China.
Geely started out by making its own car models when it started making cars in 1997. Back then it made the Haoqing, the Merrie, and the Urban Nanny van and pickup truck, which were all based on the 1987 Daihatsu Charade.
Later on, in 2010, Geely acquired Volvo, and they even have a 51 percent stake in Lotus, the British sports car brand. Geely also has a controlling stake in Proton, Geometry, Polestar, and Lynk & Co.
Here in the Philippines in 2020, Geely, whose cars are locally distributed by the Sojitz Corporation, made quite a splash in the local automotive scene when it introduced the Geely Coolray, an affordable yet very high tech, and powerful subcompact crossover.
Later on, the company also brought in the Geely Azkarra, a larger crossover that is every bit as high-tech as the Coolray.
Globally, Geely has a good number of models in its lineup. In the Philippines as of 2020, it only has two. Note though that the company is planning to expand its lineup in the country, as well as their dealership network.
