Three cars on one roof! Xingyue L Hi·P is listed, is 250,000 worth it?

Let’s look at a set of data first. In the first 10 months of 2022, the production and sales of new energy vehicles in China exceeded 5 million, doubling the year-on-year growth rate and maintaining a high growth trend. Explain that the rapid growth of new energy is no longer policy-oriented, but more about the rapid changes in consumers’ concepts and acceptance.

And independent brands in the matter of new energy, the contribution is definitely a big part. Among them, from January to October this year, Geely Automobile’s cumulative sales of new energy has reached 249,500 units, and the achievements of new energy transformation have been highlighted. In addition to several independent new energy brands, the launch of Geely’s "Raytheon Hybrid" also plays an important role in boosting the brand’s new energy running.

One car is worth three cars, so you can earn it?

As the first product equipped with Raytheon hybrid, the launch of the fuel version has let us see its leapfrog product strength and high quality and price ratio. Then Raytheon’s mixed blessing was even more icing on the cake. On November 25th, the extended range version of Xingyue L Hi·P was officially launched. Two new models were launched, and the price after comprehensive subsidy was 239.7-253.7 thousand yuan.

Xingyue L Hi·P is built based on the e-CMA intelligent ultra-electric architecture. The new car has three electric modes: "pure electricity, extended range and electric hybrid", and has four innovative electric properties: "urban pure electricity, long-distance power generation, fast charging and camping discharge", covering the whole travel scene. It can be said that it has the hard-core strength of "one car for three cars".

In fact, the extended-range model is not much different from the hybrid one in terms of design and interior, mainly by making adjustments in some details. For example, the redesigned fog light area on the front bumper is not only more closed, but also the design with the same color as the car body further enhances the vehicle recognition. Others generally still use a relatively three-dimensional front face and a semi-enclosed air intake grille. With the shape of a square light group, the whole front face is still quite imposing in visual effect.

Xingyue L Hi·P has a body size of 4770*1895*1689mm and a wheelbase of 2845mm, which is consistent with Xingyue L Raytheon Hi·F version. Although it is officially positioned as a compact SUV, from the size point of view, it can be seen that it is larger than many joint venture medium-sized SUVs, which means a bit of a dimension reduction blow.

The value of "China Star" highlights the development of Raytheon’s mixed blessing

For new cars, the biggest highlight is of course the power system. Xingyue L Hi·P is equipped with a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a 1.5T engine and a motor, which is actually a hybrid system of Leishen Intelligent Engine. The key point is that Xingyue L Hi·P comes standard with a CTP flat battery of 41.2kWh, which is close to the popular extended-range models. Take Li one as an example, its battery capacity is 40.5kWh. This also provides a basis for the extended range mode of xingyue l hi p. Under the working condition of WLTC, the pure battery life can reach 205km, far exceeding the plug-in and hybrid models of the same class.

Thanks to its pioneering 3-speed frequency conversion electric drive, Raytheon intelligent energy management technology can realize full-speed serial-parallel connection, 3-speed electric drive and intelligent adjustment of 20 working modes. In terms of energy supplement, Xingyue L Hi·P comes standard with a maximum of 85kW DC fast charge, and it takes only 27 minutes to charge from 30% to 80%. In addition, 6.6kW household slow charge is standard, while 3.3kW external discharge can meet the demand for camping electricity for more than 12 hours.

Since Geely launched the China Star high-end series, its products have been selling well. In the past 10 months, the China Star Series has exceeded 30,000 vehicles, an increase of about 32% from the previous month, among which the sales of popular models Xingyue L and Xingrui both exceeded 10,000. By the end of October, the cumulative sales volume of China Star will soon exceed 500,000, and the brand will continue to be promoted with high-value products.

Among them, the launch of the Xingyue L Raytheon series enriches the vehicle configuration, covering three power systems: fuel, hybrid and plug-in, which meet the different needs of users. At the same time, according to the data, the cumulative sales volume of Raytheon Hybrid has reached 48,570 vehicles from January to October, and the acceleration is still increasing.

Written at the end: From the sales structure of Geely in the past two years, it can be seen that the entry-level scooters, etc., which used to be used in the past, are quietly moving in the direction of high value, high quality and price ratio, and the overall sales "gold content" is constantly rising. As a brand-new masterpiece of Geely brand electrification development, Xingyue L Hi·P will accelerate the transformation of Geely automobile to intelligent electrification with its technical strength beyond its competitors and its official listing.
