Geely introduces the high-tech Yinhe series of cars along with several electrified technologies

This new series focuses on premium long-range hybrid and pure electric vehicles. Geely has ambitious plans for this – six more models will be released within the next two years. There will be four long-range hybrid-electric models, including the L7 SUV and L6 sedan. The other three will be part of the Yinhe E-only range, with the first model, the E8, set to launch in Q4 2023.

The company’s futuristic vision is reflected not only in the L7’s design, but also in its performance. Gelly introduced several new advanced electrified technologies along with the “Yinhe” line of vehicles, including the NordThor Hybrid 8848 powertrain, the Aegis battery security system and the latest intelligent vehicle operating system, Yinhe N-OS.

With more and more electrified vehicles on our roads, there are more and more cases of battery leaks or even fires. Geely’s solution to these problems is the Aegis battery safety system, designed to protect against direct impacts to the battery in crash situations. In addition, the system can extend battery life by 20% by preventing various problems such as: Thermal runaway, for example, is predicted and prevented via what Geely calls the Wise Star Cloud Connected Central Computing System.

NordThor is the brand’s dedicated hybrid engine that can achieve a peak thermal efficiency of 44.26%. With the help of the predictive energy management system, fuel consumption can be reduced by up to 15%. It’s paired with Geely’s proprietary three-speed DHT (Dedicated Hybrid Transmission) that strikes the best balance between performance and fuel economy.

With this drive technology, the L7 SUV can reach a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.5 seconds. Real-world range tests show that the SUV can travel an amazing 1,370 km (851 miles) on a single tank of fuel in hybrid driving conditions, while consuming 5.23 l/100 km (45 mpg).

Tying it all together is the Yinhe N-Operating System – Geely boldly claims the software makes its Yinhe vehicles the smartest on the road. As part of its Smart Geely 2025 strategy, the Chinese car manufacturer relies on operating systems, self-developed chips, intelligent cloud computing and satellite networks. According to Geely, the system offers the fastest system start-up and response time in its class – it takes only 0.5 seconds to get into an operational state.

The company will benefit from its parent company’s satellite network to have access to accurate geo-positioning and high-precision maps used in the intelligent driving function. By 2025, the Geely Holding Group expects a network with 72 satellites.

Because the tech sector is so fast-moving, “best-in-class” claims don’t usually last long. However, by investing heavily in software and delivering a high-tech experience for its customers, Geely can get its slice of the EV pie.
