The news of this partnership comes on the heels of another major announcement from Daimler. Last week, the company said that it would be investing $11 billion to develop electric vehicles over the next five years. This is part of Daimler’s effort to ” lead the transformation” to electrification and meet tougher emissions standards around the world.
Daimler isn’t the only automaker investing big in electrification; Volvo has also announced plans to electrify its entire lineup by 2019. And Geely itself has been investing heavily in electric vehicle technology; last year it acquired Proton, a Malaysian automaker with a strong EV research program. With this latest partnership, it’s clear that Geely is serious about becoming a major player in the global automotive industry.
