The Geely Okavango, known in China as the Geely Haoyue, has made its official launch in Saudi Arabia. The 7-seater SUV in the Middle East is powered by a 1.5 turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine, similar to the Okavango in the Philippines.

In case you have not made the link, the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine is the same unit that powers the Proton X50. However, the Okavango’s engine is aided by a 48V mild-hybrid battery which boosts power output to 190 PS and 300 Nm. Like the X50, the Okavango’s engine is also mated to a 7-speed DCT.

Measuring at 4,835 x 1,990 x 1,780 mm in length, width, and height with a wheelbase of 2,815 mm, the Okavango is the largest SUV produced by Geely. The SUV has a 2+3+2 seating configuration.

Safety-wise, the Okavango comes with 6-airbags, 360-degree Panoramic View, and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Geely’s version of ESC. No ADAS here. But the SUV does come with a CN95 cabin air filter as standard.

Depending on variant, the Okavango’s interior will feature either a 10.25-inch or a 12.3-inch touchscreen display. Saudi Arabia is also the first country to introduce a new dual-tone interior for the Okavango. Previously, the SUV only comes with an all-black interior.

The Okavango made its official world debut as the Geely Haoyue back in 2020. Though it is a relatively new car, the Haoyue is not built on Geely’s CMA platform. Instead, the SUV rides on the CV platform, similar to the Geely Jiaji MPV.
