Just months after Geely unveiled its luxury electrified sub-brand – Galaxy, patent images of the Galaxy Light concept have been leaked. The patent was reportedly registered at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). For those who don’t know, the Galaxy Light concept is one of the 7 models the company plans to launch by 2025.
Compared to the concept model Geely showcased to the world earlier this year, the design seen on the patent images looks closely similar. This includes the concept sedan’s headlights, bumper, and air vents designs.
Its body lines in the patent images look similar to the ones on the original concept model as well. Just like the concept model Geely showcased, the back of the upcoming EV sedan features a slim taillight that extends horizontally across the rear of the car, a trending design in the EV scene.
The Galaxy Light in the patent images also looks to be featuring a larger front overhang. Its ride height also seems to be heightened as well. This modification is most probably done to give the upcoming sedan a more practical and spacious interior space, especially at the back.

Geely will start to roll out its Galaxy models, starting with the Geely Galaxy L7 SUV in the second quarter of this year. The Galaxy E8, which is speculated to be the production model of the Galaxy Light concept, will be the first EV model to be launched under the Galaxy sub-brand. This launch is scheduled to be happening in the fourth quarter of this year.
The E8 is also said to be built on Geely’s own developed electrified modular architecture (E-CMA), which is the same platform that underpins other models co-developed with Geely. These models include the Polestar 2 and Volvo C40.
The Galaxy E8 sedan will also feature Geely’s latest Aegis battery safety system. This gives the EV sedan a promised increased protection against direct impacts to the battery during crash situations.
Its battery life is also boosted by as much as 20%, thanks to a new battery system that works together with the Galaxy E8’s Wise Star Cloud Connected Central Computing System. This combination allows the car to be capable of accurately predicting and pre-empting thermal runaways and other dangerous situations.
