Geely has submitted to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) a set of images of its upcoming all-electric sedan, which could be launched under the auto group’s Galaxy luxury car brand.

Geely has filed a patent application for an electric sedan very similar to the Galaxy Light concept car it unveiled in February. Interestingly, the Galaxy Light concept is touted as giving birth to the brand’s flagship model. In addition, the electric car has been planned to be launched in the European market.

The newly leaked concept car looks like a hybrid between a regular sedan and a coupe. The car is equipped with sleek and sharp headlights that can be fitted with LED units. There’s also a closing panel for the front profile, sharp-looking fog lamp housings, a coupe-like roof and wraparound taillights. This EV is a bit like the Porsche Taycan. However, the front profile looks completely different.

If we compare this concept car with this patented model, one notable difference is the way the rear doors open. Spectacular butterfly front doors and rear hinged doors impress the Galaxy Light concept. However, patent images show the rear door handles at the rear, suggesting the doors will hinge on the B-pillar like a conventional sedan, unlike the concept where they hinge on the C-pillar.

The patent image doesn’t reveal anything about the size of the upcoming EV. Considering the Galaxy Light concept was shown off as the brand’s flagship model, we can assume that a production version of the EV could be a Tesla Model S competitor. Meanwhile, the upcoming EV is smaller than that, possibly similar to the Tesla Model 3, in terms of the percentage of patents filed.

The car is expected to be based on the Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA), the same architecture used by Volvo, Polestar and other Geely auto brands.
