Geely LG-1

Geely Automobile, one of the most rapidly developing Chinese car manufacturer introduced its more upmarket LG-1 recently.

The car, which is officially named Geely LG-1 King Kong has been developed with assistance from Korean and Italian companies. Geely claims there were over 1000 engineers from China and abroad summoned for the project.

There are three engine variations: 1.5-, 1.6- and 1.8-liter. Key dimensions are: wheelbase: 2502 mm (98.5-in.), length/width/height: 4342/1692/1435 mm (170.9/66.6/56.5-in.).

LG-1 King Kong will be priced between RMB 70,000-90,000

Anyone knows if THIS is the car coming to the US in 08? If not, which one?

(Please NOT the one shown in Detroit...)

I can totally see this car succeed if this is the one coming to the US.

Geely, if you're listening, equip it with the following, standard:

- Side curtain airbags, front and side airbags (total of 6 airbags), 4 wheel disc ABS (to address the #1 concern when people buy cars, SAFETY)

- 10 year warranty on powertrain, 5 year bumper to bumper, 3 year free full maintenance, 10 year free oil change, 5 year free road side assitance (to address the #2 concern, quality/reliability)

- Comfort and conveniences can be optional. People like to have them, but they're not a "concern" per se.

Now keep that starting price under 10K and you have a true winner!!! With gas prices these days, I'd buy one in a heartbeat to commute and run errands.

But I heard the price will be less than 70000 Yuan. I think Geely will meet difficulties to sell it at such a high price, I mean if it will be priced 70000-90000.

It's a Chevy Aveo/Daewoo Kalos/Daewoo Gentra/Pontiac G3 in new clothes, presumably with new engines too, since I don't think there's a 1.8 liter Kalos/Aveo/Gentra.

I think most Americans would see an Aveo as a better bet. I can't imagine that the CK would be preferable to this, however.
