Geometry, the pure electric brand from Geely Auto Group showcased its most affordable EV to date with the launch of the EX3 crossover.
The Geometry EX3 offers users 322km of range under the NEDC cycle, thanks to a 37.23kWh battery which can be charged from zero to 80% in less than 30 minutes with high-speed DC chargers. The vehicle is also designed to be readily able for charging by plugging into a normal household 220V socket.
The EX3 is equipped with a 70Kw e-motor that provides 180Nm of torque and a highly efficient regenerative braking system, putting it on par with traditional gasoline vehicles in terms of performance.
When developing the EX3, Geely Auto Group R&D engineers put the vehicle through Geely’s most stringent of testing regimes which include several hundred individual tests on the full vehicle and electric drive systems before taking it to market. Safety equipment on the Geometry EX3 includes dual airbags, reversing sensors and cameras, Tire Pressure Monitoring system as well as ABS + EBD. The model also comes standard with high-strength steel front and rear anti-collision bars with tensile strength above 590MPA.
The EX3 adopts a liquid cooled battery temperature control management system which allows the vehicle to safely charge at high speeds and operate efficiently in hot and cold temperatures. The internal temperature of the battery is kept at 20°C to maximize its performance in all conditions and extend battery life.
The EX3 at 4005mm long x 1760mm wide x 1575mm high with a wheelbase of 2480mm offers class leading interior space designed to fit five comfortably with room to spare. Maximizing space utilization, its 26 storage compartments allow occupants to store all their things with ease. In addition, the EX3 offers 500L of luggage space expandable to 1050L with rear seats folded.
Aesthetically, the interior design was developed with young consumers in mind. Adopting a two-tone black and blue colour scheme with visually impactful fluorescent highlights, a stylish, clean, and sophisticated atmosphere is created. Suede-like soft touch materials applied liberally throughout the interior and ergonomically designed seats provide occupants with a more comfortable ride experience.
Intelligence is brought to the cockpit with a digital 10.25inch LCD instrument screen and 8 inch floating central infotainment panel. The EX3 comes with Geely’s G-Link system providing mobile device mirroring, native QQ music, Autonavi navigation, Ximalaya radio, voice control, in-car Wi-Fi, and other smart applications.
The Geometry EX3 will be first available at Geometry dealers that cover over 20 cities across China and will look to export markets in due course. Users within China are able to order the EX3 via the Geometry App with a 300RMB deposit.
The Geometry EX3 will be one of the most affordable five seater EVs in the Chinese market with presale estimated price from 59,700RMB (approximately $9,200USD)
