Geely continued its strong sales streak as the Coolray became the best-seller in its segment yet again, this time moving 186 units in May. 

Based the reports from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc (CAMPI) and the Association of Vehicle Importers and Distributors, Inc. (AVID), the Coolray subcompact 4x2 SUV contributed a 33 percent market share on month-to-date (MTD) numbers.
