The Geely Galaxy E8 has a trunk with a capacity of 420 litres and a frunk for 53 litres and features a drag coefficient of Cd 0.199.

Five trim levels are available at launch, arranging from the 550km PRO to the 620km Performance, prices for which range from the above-mentioned 175,800 yuan (24,760 USD) to 228,800 yuan (32,200 USD) for the range-topping variant.

For the more affordable variants, a 400-volt platform is also available, which runs on a single 200 kW rear-axle motor. Its acceleration stands at 5.95 seconds from 0-100 kph. The Galaxy E8 is now available to order with three battery options: 62 kWh, 75.6 kWh, and 76 kWh battery.
