Of note, the Geely Yinhe E8 also stood out from among 11,000 other entries from 72 countries. While it had stiff competition, the EV clinched the award thanks to the high recognition of 132 global authoritative design review experts. In particular, the E8 EV was praised for its many design innovations and its integration of culture, technology, and user needs. 

On a more visual note, the E8’s particularly eye-catching details include the application of Geely’s patented “micro hole laser engraving technology.” This is applied to the front end and it enables the vehicle to display dynamic lighting effects. 

Another notable feature of the brand’s flagship EV is a huge 45-inch 8k smart screen display which is seamlessly positioned on its sleek dashboard. This controls a majority of the E8’s in-car features and amenities, and the brand says it provides a better interactive experience for the vehicle’s users.
