Geely Auto Starts Delivery of Flagship Electric Yinhe E8 Sedan

At one quick glance this could be the new Xiaomi SU7 electric car or even the XPENG P7. It is interesting to see how Chinese premium EV manufacturers are producing slippery looking electric sedans that all seem to carry the design language of the popular Porsche Taycan.

Also interesting is the cabin design direction taken by all the new Chinese premium sedan manufacturers, which is to follow very closely what can be found in the Taycan, e-Tron which is priced from RM599k in Malaysia and even the Mercedes EQE which retails from RM649,888 in Malaysia and the EQS sedan.

Yes, the cabin premium feel and cabin technology seem to be on par and in some areas, even better and all this at a lower selling price.

So, will this all new Geely electric sedan arrive in Malaysia as Proton’s first electric car? Will it carry the Perdana badge?
