Geely goes contact-free by using drones to deliver new car keys

Last month, Geely Auto rolled out its own online sales system that offered customers a one-stop solution for all things car-buying. Services included alteration of vehicle specifications, financing and insurance.

But there is one option that surpasses the imagination and couldn’t have been a more ideal solution for a time when human contact is best kept to a minimum.

And it’s drones. Geely is using drones to deliver new car keys to their owners by flying directly to their doorstep or even balcony. This not only eliminates the need for customers to drop by the dealership but also creates a truly contactless car-buying experience.

Since the platform was launched in February, just over 10,000 consumers have ordered and paid for vehicles on Geely’s online mall with a further 110,000 users registering their interest to buy a Geely vehicle in the short term.

All Geely Auto vehicles are thoroughly disinfected by the dealership including through ionization prior to delivery in order to ensure customers enjoy a safe and healthy purchase experience.

As part of Geely’s commitment to developing healthy cars, Geely Auto has set aside a RMB370 million fund that will focus on the development of cleaner, healthier vehicles providing clean cabin air and using materials that are antimicrobial in nature. The first mass produced vehicle equipped with anti-bacterial filters, the Geely ICON, was launched in late February 2020.
