BEIJING, May 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese automaker Geely has recently inked a deal with the government of Xiangtan municipality in central China's Hunan Province to launch a new energy sport utility vehicle (SUV) project in the province. 

According to the deal, the project requires a total investment of about 3 billion yuan and a brand-new new energy SUV model will be introduced at Geely's Xiangtan base. 

It is expected that the first vehicle will be rolled off the assembly line in June 2023. After the project is fully completed, it will achieve an annual production and sales of 80,000 new models, with an annual output value of about 10 billion yuan.
