Geely Coolray claims segment sales lead anew
The local arm of Chinese automotive brand in the country Geely is still in high spirits after again topping sales in the subcompact crossover segment to welcome the final quarter of the year, thanks to the Coolray.
Geely Philippines, under Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP), announced that based on the latest report from Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI) and the Association of Vehicle Importers and Distributors, Inc. (AVID), the Coolray has once again landed on the number one spot in the five-seater subcompact crossover segment in October.
For the said month, SGAP had a total of 205 Geely Coolray units delivered.
For his part, Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP) President and CEO Mikihisa Takayama expressed elation over the market response for their offering.
“This proves that more and more people are taking notice of the value that Geely brings to its consumers. We are happy that with the good market reception in the past year, our efforts are paying off,” he said.
“It has been a year since we took a chance on bringing the Geely brand in the Philippines. We are overwhelmed that everything continues to get better, even in the middle of a global crisis”, the SGAP chief added.
In its statement, SGAP said that they have been receiving a lot of “positive feedback from satisfied Geely customers.”
“Some owners have shared with the team their fun Coolray journey from their purchase to their memorable experiences. Most of the owners said it was a ‘love at first sight’ kind of story with the Coolray,” SGAP claimed.
“Fortunately, I read about the launch of Geely in the Philippines and this model called Coolray. So, ni-research ko agad. ‘Yung interiors niya was glaringly above anything in its class and you have to understand, three months na akong tumitingin ng mga sasakyan. So, kumbaga, at that point in time, hasang-hasa na ako tumingin. And at that price range, I could not believe it,” Blanco was quoted as saying.
“I drove around the drive way onto the streets ng driveway namin. Pagtapak ko ng silinyador sa street, sabi ko, okay na ako. Eto na yun. I’m sold,” he noted.
