Re: Future FC-2 and FC-3

I totally agree with you, Daewoo-Chevy. These cars will appeal to european customers as the price tag shoould / could be low, whereas the design of the car has that special something. Thumbs up for producing this! :thumb:

Re: Future FC-2 and FC-3

I heard that the car will be much more expensive than I thought, at least
in Germany.
Starting price will be around 21.000 € and the 1.8 with full equipment costs around 25.000 €.
I don´t know if the prices are for the hatchback or the sedan.

Re: Future FC-2 and FC-3

The Chery dealer in Munich, where I ordered my Chery A1 told me that the Geely FC-2 and FC-3 will be available in Germany in mid-2009.
It is possible to order the new "Dihao/Imperial"-Models from 2nd quarter of 2009 and if the GC or SUV models will get into production they are also available through China Automobile Deutschland.

The Geely Grand EC718 has been spotted out, and in a rather odd brown color.

Both the hatch and sedan variants will be paired to 1.8l and 2.0l engines. The 1.8l engine is the 4G18N model that is using D-CVVT technology, and is an improvement over the Geely Yuanjing’s CVVT engine. Max power is 102kw at 6000rpm, torque is 175Nm between 3400 and 3600rpm.

This particular model is expected to go up against the Chery A3, and also the Lifan 620, and various other Chinese made compact sedans.

We believe that this model is set to be known as the Grand FE-2, previously it was known as the Geely FC3.

Re: Emgrand EC7 and EC7-RV (Geely FE-1 and FE-2)

Nice....if this car passes European standards, it will sure pack a punch in europe. Then again, geely must not forget, the koreans can also make cars cheaply too and thus, they must price their cars much cheaply than the koreans.

Re: Emgrand EC7 and EC7-RV (Geely FE-1 and FE-2)

With rumours of Geely planning to enter the Australian market, and hopefully the New Zealand market, could they bring this as well. I hope so because the latest shots show a decent, original car with plenty of potential.
Good work Geely.:thumb:
