Its official ladies and gents: Geely Azkarra 2020, which was confirmed to be heading here to the Philippines this year, will be fitted with the Intelligent Air Purification System (IAPS).
This fact was confirmed to us by Sojitz G Auto Philippines itself, the brand’s local distributor in the country.
Geely has also confirmed that the Geely Coolray 2020 (model year update) will also get equipped with the IAPS. Furthermore, current owners of the Coolray crossover will be able to get their air-filtration systems updated soon.

The IAPS is a high-efficiency filter that works in a two-step process. First, it uses a negative ion generator, which as the name implies, ionizes air molecules ridding it of harmful bacteria and viruses.
And second, the system uses an activated carbon chemical filter which removes air impurities, therefore preventing bad smells like smog from entering Azkarra’s cabin.
That's right, the IAPS will become available aboard the Geely Coolray
The said filter is also a CN95 certified filter, which means that it can block droplets as small as 0.3 microns. That’s a key fact because the COVID-19 virus relies on droplets for mobility.
Note also that all future Geely automobiles will come with this system, and while this is a good-to-have feature in cars nowadays, Geely themselves can’t guarantee that the said system can provide 100 percent protection from the dreaded coronavirus.
