Geely Philippines is one of the Chinese car brands that have been making a statement in the local market. We previously reported that Geely managed to roll out 2,246 units in the first half of 2021, which translates to a 342 percent increase compared to the same period last year.
The Coolray remains to be the best-selling Geely in the Philippines. In fact, the Chinese car brand shared that it was able to register 1,960 units sold from January to September 2021. The said number further highlights the local market’s positive response to Geely’s offering in the subcompact crossover segment.
The Coolray leads by 327 units sold
The Geely Coolray is offered in four variants with a starting price of Php 978,000. Geely recently introduced a new trim for its subcompact crossover dubbed Coolray Sport Limited. The new trim now sits as the top-of-the-line Coolray variant, and it features 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels, ventilated front seat, and a power tailgate. The said trim is limited to 1,000 units only.
Coming in as the second best-selling Geely is the seven-seater Okavango MPV with 1,633 units sold from January to September 2021. The Okavango is performing better in terms of unit sales as compared to the Azkarra compact crossover, which shows that Filipinos are fond of seven-seater vehicles.
The Azkarra, on the other hand, tallied 225 units sold from January to September 2021. This vehicle is Geely PH’s challenger in the five-seater compact crossover segment. It comes in two variants with a starting price of Php 1,438,000.
In total, Geely PH has sold 3,818 units from January to September 2021. The said number will still move as the local market enters the last quarter.
It's a close battle between the Coolray and the Okavango
On the other hand, Geely PH posted 540 units sold in September 2021. As expected, the car brand’s sales performance was driven by the Coolray with 257 units sold. But, the Okavango’s unit sales are not that far from the Coolray as it tallied 250 units sold last month. Meanwhile, Geely PH said that the Azkarra was able to yield 33 units sold.
With the launch of the Coolray Sport Limited, we can expect the sales of Geely’s subcompact crossover to continue its momentum. But then again, the Okavango is closing in on the Coolray in terms of unit sales. With that, could the Okavango dethrone the Coolray as the best-selling Geely in the Philippines?
