Geely Mexico announced that, as of today, November 8, 2023, it officially began operations in our country, through an event in which it brought together nearly 300 people to celebrate this historic event for the brand, in front of business partners, distributors, employees, media and some of the first customers.
As part of this event, the company presented the two models with which it arrives in the Mexican market, Geely Coolray 2024 and Geely Geometry C 2024, two new generation SUVs, one internal combustion and the other electric, respectively.
This move aligns with the tenth anniversary of the comprehensive partnership between China and Mexico. Mexico, the world’s seventh-largest car market, was a natural choice for Geely’s global expansion. Geely Auto’s CEO, Mr. Gan, emphasized, “Together with our Mexican partners, our focus is on users, driving strategies tailored for the Mexican market, crafting a forward-looking ‘new ecosystem’ and consistently delivering high-value vehicles to cater to local needs, gradually building an operation and service system that resonates with consumers.”
The arm that will make the brand’s commercial expectation a reality will be all distributors nationwide, which will be operational and serving buyers before the end of 2024, and it was announced that it is expected to reach 100 distributors by the end of 2025.
These distributors are located in the main states of the Republic and will serve new buyers in their sales, after-sales and spare parts needs and, thanks to the alliance that Geely has with DHL Supply Chain, the latter will be in charge of distributing auto parts and spare parts in a timely manner to each of the distributors in the country.
