Geely has announced a new lifestyle vehicle brand, Radar. The company also confirmed that Radar would focus on electric pickup trucks, SUVs and ATVs, revealing that the first model will be the RD6 pickup. The vehicle will be based on Geely’s Sustainable Experience Architecture, allowing for external charging features built into the truck bed.

Geely has unveiled Radar, a new lifestyle vehicle brand, and the Radar RD6 electric pickup truck. The vehicle has been designed with help from Peter Horbury, known for his work for Volvo and Ford.

Radar Auto is expected to manufacture a range of electric pickup trucks, SUVs and ATVs, with the RD6 as its first model. Every vehicle produced by Radar will use Geely Holding’s pure electric Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA). This technology will allow single and dual motor options, a front trunk and a truck bed with external charging features.

The first deliveries of the Radar RD6 are forecast to be made in China before the end of this year. Geely has said it will announce the EV’s performance figures and range in due course. The company claims that the pickup will have “considerable technology underpinnings”.

Some rumors suggest that the vehicle can deliver between 200 and 400 hp, with a driving range of up to 600 km (373 miles). It has also been reported that the Radar RD6 will be similar in size to the Toyota Hilux pickup truck. It is currently unclear how much the vehicle will cost and in which markets it will be available; Geely has indicated that it is looking to expand in Southeast Asia and possibly the US.
