One year after the successful launch of Geely brand in Kuwait, Geely cars can be seen conquering Kuwait roads. Four Geely models —EC7, EC8, LC Panda and GX2, — have been doing very well since their launch in June last year.
Mr Ashish Tandon, General Manager of KAICO shared, "This is the first time Geely Emgrand has brought an SUV to Kuwait, so there is much excitement among the admirers of this leading global Chinese brand. We are confident the Geely Emgrand X7 will have a significant impact on the growing SUV market in Kuwait. Geely Emgrand X7 is complete value for money."

The model carries a world-class automatic transmission DSI 6AT and 2.4L CVVT engine and has become the flagship model of the Emgrand X7 series. The GEELY EMGRAND X7 appears in a dynamic fashion with spacious interior and multi-functional configuration.

Super engine combination
The 6AT in the GEELY EMGRAND X7 is produced by DSI (Drivetrain Systems International), the world's second largest automatic transmission company with leading-edge manufacturing technology. To provide maximum control accuracy and gearshift comfort, DSI uses independent clutch control, closed-loop control rule of shift pressure and engine torque control to configure planetary gear transmission system, multi-plate wet clutch and brake belt. DSI 6AT in the GEELY EMGRAND X7 does better in shift performance, starting acceleration performance, steering and ride comfort, engine combination and fuel economy. It can lower the rider’s sense of setback when getting a gearshift and only takes 0.3 second for gearshift response. The 6AT has a torque of 400Nm on maximum resolution, so the engine performance can be lifted 10 percent.

The 2.4L engine carried by the model is cast through aluminum process and uses Continue Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) technology, so it not only is lighter but also delivers excellent engine performance. It has a maximum power of 119kW/5700rpm and maximum torque of 220 Nm /4000-4200rpm.

Excellent safety performance
Rexzcy Williams - Geely Brand Manager mentioned that Geely cars are renowned for their up-to-date technology, great performance and superb quality and were developed in accordance with European standards. "Geely has made fruitful effort in safety technology in recent years", he added. Today the company has organized a safety R&D team of over 500 engineers, who contribute to its safety technology development. Having set up a world-class safety center, the automaker has achieved the capacity for testing all the car models under both China's and EU's evaluation system, built a comprehensive R&D flow for safety systems so as to evaluate safety performance, cost and quality control, and established the Geely Total Safety Management (GTSM) system to ensure overall safety performance.

The Geely Emgrand X7 was rated 5+ stars with 50.3 scores on C-NCAP safety test, the best result ever earned by a Chinese homegrown brand in the history of C-NCAP. The GEELY EMGRAND X7, Geely's first SUV, has achieved top safety performance and outdone many models from joint ventures.

Based on the safety system of Geely Total Safety Management (GTSM), the GEELY EMGRAND X7 is designed in accordance with the 5-star standards of E-NCAP and 5+ standards of C-NCAP. The model has "6+1" air bags configuration. "6" are conventional six air bags in frontal and side parts, and "1" is the KABs (knee airbags) which are rarely seen in models of the same class. The energy-absorbing engine bonnet and crumpling-type head lamp mounting frame provide pedestrian protection.

Cutting-edge smart settings
The Geely Emgrand X7 is equipped with excellent smart devices. Vehicle Bluetooth System, rear camera, audio system and other high-tech devices give customers opportunities to enjoy the fruits of the progress in science and technology. There is plenty of legroom and headroom inside the GEELY EMGRAND X7, and the riders can enjoy perfect visual field. Rear seats on slide adjusters can meet different sitting postures. With great safety performance, engine combination and smart settings as well as economic and comfortable features, the GEELY EMGRAND X7 will be a popular model and is expected to exceed 10,000 units per month in Chinese market in sales performance for this year.
