Geely Okavango

Geely Philippines has been making a statement in the local crossover segment through its Coolray and Azkarra models.

It is a seven-seater SUV that is set to maintain Geely PH’s positive sales momentum. The name Okavango was derived from North-western Botswana’s vast inland delta, Okavango Delta. In 2014, UNESCO has recognized the Okavango Delta as its 1,000th World Heritage Site. It was also declared as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Africa. The 2021 Geely Okavango is offered in two variants, Comfort and Urban, which are both equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine featuring a 48-volt electric motor.
