Geely Nigeria set to launch all- new ‘Gamechanger’ SUV
Plans are underway by GeelyNigeria, the exclusive partnership between Mikano International and Geely to launch a brand new SUV.
Since it commenced operations in Nigeria, the global auto giant has had an exemplary run towards establishing itself as one of the fastest-growing auto brands in the country.
In February, Geely Global reported an impressive 78,478 sales volume worldwide, a clear indication for the brand in Nigeria. Shortly before this, in 2021, it was announced that Geely was the only Asian automaker to join the International Automotive Task Force, (IATF), joining other members, such as BMW Group, Volkswagen AG and Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Limited, to name a few.
Leveraging Mikano International’s formidable legacy, Mikano Motors launched GeelyNigeria with the introduction of the X7Sport and Emgrand7 models with laudable success. This was quickly followed by the launch of the Coolray SUV, which won the award for “Best Compact SUV- Design and Technology 2021”, by the Nigerian Auto Journalists Association (NAJA).
From all indications, Mikano Motors- GeelyNigeria, is set to shake the Nigerian auto- industry once again with the planned new addition.
“What we do know so far is that the new entrant is a C- Segment, hybrid SUV, with no limit to the luxury, technology and safety that Geely is renowned for. This SUV, like the Coolray before it, was co-developed with Volvo Autos, which Geely took ownership of in 2010.”
