Geely and Volvo are exploring the possibility of merging their engine businesses, which is still in the planning stage and needs to be implemented after the two sides reach an intention to merge and complete due diligence, Geely Holdings said today.

According to the plan, after the engine business, the partners will establish new powertrain business units, research and development, production powertrain and hybrid power system, and enhance the scale effect in R & D, production, procurement and operation. At the same time, the new business unit will become an independent powertrain supplier and can also supply other vehicle manufacturers.


The plan will speed up the fully electrified process of Volvo cars, which will still purchase efficient powertrains and hybrid systems from the new business unit. Volvo plans to sell around 2025, accounting for half of all models sold by pure electric vehicles and half by hybrid vehicles.

In addition, the new business unit will focus on superior resources to develop and produce clean and efficient powertrains and hybrid systems, and carry it in its Volvo, Geely, Lecker, Proton, Lutes, London Electric cars and other brands to further enhance the synergy among the brands.

In addition, Volvo and Geely have about 3000 employees engaged in engine development, procurement and manufacturing, respectively, and the planned merger will not affect the existing workforce.
