Spy Shots: Geely Emgrand EC7 goes Hybrid in China

Spy Shots showing the upcoming Geely Emgrand EC7 Hybrid, based on the petrol-powered Geely Emgrand EC7 sedan. The EC7 Hybrid will be the first mass-produced hybrid for the Geely brand. Dash comes loaded with spacy tech, new Emgrand logo on the steering wheel.

The Emgrand EC7 hybrid drive train consists of a 1.8 liter petrol engine and an electric motor.The choice of engine is interesting as the petrol-powered EC7 is only available with a 109hp 1.5 and a 133hp 1.3 turbo. The latter is a modern engine and seems very well-suited for a hybrid system. The specs of the EC7 Hybrid are yet unknown but we know that is also gets a start-stop system and a brake energy recovery system. Fuel consumption is said to be “less than” 5 liter per 100 kilometer.

EC7 Hybrid gets a new grille in style with the Emgrand EC9 and Emgrand SX7 SUV. It seems likely that the petrol-powered variants will move to the new grille as well. The blue color of he center bar however might be exclusive for the hybrid, showing off green.

    “….. gets a stop start system”
    It sounds, and looks, like a “mild hybrid”, i.e. motor cannot power the vehicle alone.
