2020 March 09, Hong Kong. Geely Automobile Holding Limited (Group) announced that the total sales volume of the Group (including the sales volume of LYNK & CO-branded vehicles sold by the Group’s 50%-owned joint venture) for the month of February 2020 was 21,168 units, a decrease of approximately 75% from the same period last year. The lower February sales volume is largely due to the disruption caused by the recent outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in China.

The total sales volume in the first two months of 2020 was 133,006 units, a decrease of approximately 45% from the same period last year, and achieving 9% of the Group’s full year sales volume target of 1,410,000 units in 2020. Of the total sales volume in the first two months of 2020, 6,421 units were new energy and electrified vehicles (NEVs).
