Geely recently delivered 30 units of the Geely Jiaji to the Gouyang County Public Security Bureau in Anhui in a small handover ceremony.
The Geely Jiaji police vehicles will assist the Guoyang County police to maintain public order and upkeep peace.
This isn’t the first time the Geely Jiaji has undergone such duties, as Geely deployed 169 units of the Jiaji during the initial outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in China earlier this year, assisting front-liners with their duties.
To recap, the Geely Jiaji is a brand-new MPV that was introduced in March 2019. It gets a range of powertrains, including a mild or plug-in hybrid version of the Proton X50’s 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine. There’s also the option of the older 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder from the Proton X70.
We’ve reviewed the Geely Jiaji before and while it looks impressive on paper and the pretty-looking interior will wow showroom visitors, it’s a rather mediocre MPV – the biggest problem is its uncomfortable second and third row rows – a massive dealbreaker for an MPV.
Rumours are circulating that the Geely Jiaji could be rebadged as the Proton V70, but we believe that the larger Geely Haoyue has a better chance of making it here as SUVs are all the rage these days. MPVs? Less so.
