The Chinese Manufacturer Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, otherwise more commonly known as Geely, debuted a car concept one month ago known as the GE11.
The said concept car has now graduated to a planned model under their equally new “Geometry” brand as the Geely Geometry A and that indeed harkens to the quickly burgeoning electric vehicle aspirations of the company.
Not content to rest their laurels on the Geometry A, Geely has further announced that their Geometry brand will be comprised of a line-up to ten more electric vehicles by 2025.
The Chinese car brand indeed looks like it will be able to do that as they have invested and even acquired well known and established brands such as Volvo and their in-house performance department Polestar and also Lotus.
The polestar of which has now been turned into an EV developing and researching company. Geely even has a 50% stake in Smart which has been known to also produce electric vehicles.

As to the Geometry A itself, Geely has given it a minimalist look which echoes that of current EV models like the those from Tesla sedans. Yes the Geely EV indeed looks minimalist and yet it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye as it has both futuristic elements worthy of a car for the future and familiar designs one can find from premium sedans popular today.
Due to this fluid minimalism, the car in question is quite aerodynamic. Despite that aerodynamic shape, Geely aims that the Geometry A focuses more on being a people carrying A to B vehicle which is somewhat a different direction from the torque monsters other major EV manufacturers like Tesla shaped their vehicles to be.
