In the time of coronavirus, a new Chinese method was created to deliver new car keys to customers without any risk of spreading the infectious virus, and this is what we will introduce you, dear Arabs GT followers, in this article.
Who would have expected that staying at home would become “mandatory” and will be enforced by the police in many countries of the world! As we saw, many countries have imposed curfews and lockdowns to preserve the health of their people from the dangers of the spread of coronavirus.
Moreover, as our ArabGT team has previously posted, many carmakers around the world are facing hardships due to this virus. Italian supercar makers Ferrari and Lamborghini have both suspended production, Bentley, Bugatti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford, Fiat and General Motors, are all facing difficulties.
Even the American company Tesla Motors has closed a factory for its electric cars in addition to other vehicle manufacturing giants.
Since necessity is the mother of invention, we will see with you today a new safe way to deliver new car keys to customers:
This innovative method was presented by the Chinese company Geely, the parent company of Volvo and Lotus, and it depends on modern technology to protect people from the risk of catching coronavirus, as they deliver the keys to customers using drones, in order to ensure that people-to-people contact is minimum.
Geely announced that more than 10 thousand customers have requested and paid for new cars via the web. There are also more than 110 thousand other users who have registered their interest in buying new cars soon, according to the Chinese automaker. All Geely Auto vehicles are thoroughly disinfected by the dealership before sending them to customers.
