The Russian representative office of Geely can replenish the line of cars in our country with one more model. This is a sedan, which is known either under the symbol FE6, or under the Chinese name BinRui.
"The possibility of supplying the Geely FE6 sedan to the Russian market is being considered," Ksenia Andriyanova told the Rossiyskaya Gazeta department head.
It is obvious that even with a positive solution of the issue, the car will be able to appear with Russian dealers at least next year. Geely has not yet been engaged in certification of the model in Russia. So far this process has only touched SX11 crossovers. Deliveries of the raised Emgrand GS hatchbacks are also expected this year. Earlier it was reported that the flagship sedan Emgrand GT will soon replace the hybrid model GE.
By the way, all these decisions are completely within the logic of the appearance of Geely FE6 in Russia. The fact is that the new sedan is almost a reduced copy of the BoRui model sold in Russia under the name Emgrand GT. A four-door built on a modular platform BMA. That is, on the same "cart" as the BinYue crossover – the above-mentioned SX11.
FE6 really looks like the current flagship of the Russian line of Geely. At the same time, it is 276 mm shorter, 76 mm narrower and 53 mm lower. Wheelbase 180 mm less. The dimension, of course, affects the price – in China, BinRui costs from 79.8 to 110.8 thousand yuan. In terms of rubles, this range is from 760 thousand to 1.05 million rubles. Recall, Emgrand GT is sold in Russia at prices ranging from 1.39 to 1.74 million rubles.
In this case, the equipment FE6 includes an advanced multimedia system with a screen of 10.25 inches, a number of electronic assistants and even second-level autopilot. What appears from this set in Russia, if the model itself is brought to us, will be decided when determining the ruble price. Moreover, it is unlikely that it will be possible to locate a novelty at the BelGI plant in Belarus. The local conveyor is designed for three models and is fully occupied. Including the budget sedan Emgrand 7.
Recall the results of the first quarter of 2019, Geely is the leader of the Russian market in terms of sales. As AUTOSTAT reported earlier, in January-March, Russian Geely dealers sold 1,566 cars, which is 4.1 times more than last year.
