24 March 2015, Cuba. Geely Auto and TECNOIMPORT, Cuba’s Import and Export Company, signed a strategic sales deal to provide the Cuban government with over 2000 Geely Auto vehicles. This deal amounted to nearly 20 million Euros, and includes models such as the Geely CK, Emgrand EC7 and Emgrand EC8. Geely Auto has previously signed sales agreements with the Cuban government, as of 2015 almost 60% of the governments vehicles are supplied by Geely Auto, exceeding other branded vehicles by a considerable percentage.
The extra 2000 vehicles will be used primarily within the car rental business in Cuba which is under going a boom due to increased tourism activity. Geely Auto has exported more than 12,000 vehicles to Cuba since 2008, of which the Geely CK has proven to be the most popular model due to its strong value, and is widely used by the police, civil service and rental market. The Geely Emgrand EC718, the second most popular model from Geely in Cuba, is largely used by the car rental for foreign tourists and also foreign-funded enterprises. Geely will continue to strengthen its presence within the Cuban market in order to provide the best level of after sales service possible and to further the brand in this key market.
