The history of Geely Corporation began in 1986, when the company, unknown at that time, decided to break into the global production of auto and motto equipment. The choice was one hundred percent winning, given the promising Chinese market. The pace of development of the “young technological tiger” speaks for itself – in two years of operation, the company increased the production of then-new autoscooter products from 60 thousand to 240 thousand, reaching the first line of motor giants in 1994.
In 2015, Geely Group Co., Ltd plans to produce up to 160 thousand cars at a factory in Taizhou, Zhejian Province, China, of which about 20 thousand will be released on restyled and starting and new models.
The debut of the new Geely GC9 model, which attracted attention to the new product by the order of a spoiled global auto-monophone, was successful, the advertising move was appreciated.
The main thing that the main competitors did not expect was the appearance in the appearance of a new Chinese car of the style inherent in the best European and Japanese models. Undoubtedly, the merit of such an update belongs to the European specialists who joined Geely Group Co., Ltd from design departments of European auto brands, for example, Peter Horberi from Volvo. The main proportions of the Geely GC9 are borrowed from the Volvo S60 L platform, slightly more elongated than the version produced for the Chinese market.
Beautiful dynamic outlines of the car with completely new features of the front end, an unusual solution of the air intake and grille, cut-off forms of optics and foglights, will not leave without attention fans of new solutions in automotive design. The Chinese decided to make the back of the car more sporty and aggressive, with huge trapezoidal tailpipes – elements inherent in sports “missiles”.
The desire to add a sporty flavor in the design of the car is clearly visible in the stylish features of the car interior, but at the same time, the spirit of the business class is carefully maintained, within which the Geely GC9 is positioned.
The wheelbase of the sedan is 4960 and 2880 mm. The internal volume leaves an impression with a cursory acquaintance as a fairly large open one, completely unusual for such a body. The basic offer will include an electric parking brake, the most advanced rear-view camera and all-round visibility, 7 airbags, a control system for exit from dead zones and frontal collisions, cruise control, etc..
The control system for the engine and interior service units is fully computerized and displayed on the touch screen.
Propulsion units begin with a volume of 2400 cm3. naturally aspirated and with a capacity of 163 horses, the maximum version assumes 3,500 “cubes” with 270 “horses” and, comparable to the “diesel” version, a torque of 350 Nm. Aggregates will be assembled with 6-speed automatic DSI gearboxes made in China.
The machine will be equipped with a fully independent suspension, with the front wheels mounted on a proven MacPherson system, and the rear multi-link suspension system..
The appearance of the first cars in our market is expected in the second half of this year 2015.
The price will most likely not be as shocking as if we were condemning a European car now..
