As Exclusive Partner of Geely Automotive in Nigeria, Mikano brings us great news of Geely Automotive. This is in respect of innovative steps towards the development of “healthy, intelligent vehicles”. Furthermore, the company has is earmarking 54 million Dollars of funding for the project; as a furthering of the fight against Coronavirus.
According to Tireful, The move not only adds a new dimension to Geely’s understanding of “passenger safety” but it also represents a new development direction for automobiles.
The development of a “healthier car” differs from specialized medical vehicles in that Geely’s products are made for regular consumers. Cars with comprehensive virus protection not only require the capability to isolate harmful substances in the air. However, it also needs to quickly and effectively purify cabin air for occupants.
Geely Auto’s global R&D and design networks based in Europe, USA and China will jointly move to develop and research new environmentally sustainable materials with anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties that can be used within air-conditioner systems and on frequently touched surfaces such as buttons and handles.
Only by making healthier products can we meet consumer demand for a better quality of life. Based on the automotive industry’s development direction built around electrified, connectivity, intelligence, and shared mobility, auto companies should commit to developing products that help protect the health of drivers and passengers. This will become one of Geely Auto key long-term development objectives.
Earlier on January 28, Geely Holding Group joined hands with the Li Shufu Foundation. The partnership is to set up a special $30b fund in support of the new coronavirus prevention and control. This is with a focus on the mass purchasing of much needed medical supplies.
Geely’s leading track record will be taken to a new level with the development of an all-round “healthier car”. Geely’s move sets a new precedent in the development of safety technologies that go beyond developing leading crash test results and moves into new dimensions of passenger safety.
