Geely unveils AI-powered Galaxy Starship SUV concept

BEIJING: Geely Auto Group, one of China's largest private carmakers, unveiled on Thursday its new car concept - the Galaxy Technology Flagship sports utility vehicle (SUV) Galaxy Starship, the world's first 11-in-one intelligent electric drive.

This marked Geely as the first automaker with the capability to create an entire system of artificial intelligence (Al) architectures for Al vehicles.

The system also features several AI-powered features including AI digital chassis, silicon carbide hybrid drive integration, and integrated satellite technology.

The vehicle was launched by Geely Auto Group chief executive officer Jerry Gan at the 2024 Beijing auto show.

"Harnessing the power of Al to push the physical limits, Geely is committed to building intelligent cars that are controllable and connected,” said Gan.

Also present were Proton Holdings Bhd chief executive officer (CEO) Li Chunrong and Proton Edar Sdn Bhd CEO and Proton deputy CEO Roslan Abdullah.

Geely Holding holds a 49.9% stake in Proton Holdings Bhd, the parent company of Proton Edar.

Gan said the Galaxy Starship is a new technology flagship SUV prototype, which was developed based on the GEA architecture - Geely’s self-developed global intelligent new energy architecture that integrates hardware, system, ecology, and AI, realising five major unrestricted aspects, namely space design, intelligent energy, full-domain safety, AI intelligence, and driving control performance.

At the same time, he said that as the world's largest intelligent architecture with the largest new energy bandwidth, it has achieved full electrification and supports all energy forms such as pure electric, hybrid, extended range, and green methanol.


"It is the epitome of the strongest technology in the Galaxy and the first full-size SUV prototype of Geely,” he added.

Geely's AI digital chassis has a reaction speed of four milliseconds, which is 25 times faster than a human's extreme reaction speed.

It can achieve "automatic control of the car" to avoid danger under extreme reaction, providing users with active avoidance, and never losing control of safety protection.

In addition, its NordThor hybrid powertrain boasts a range of over 2,000km.
