Re: Geely MK (King Kong)

cpt_shawky said:
only manual or available automatic gearbox ??

The King Kong has 2 engine sizes (1.5 and 1.8l) with a base price of 53,000rmb (1.3MT) up to 71,800rmb (the 1.5 with a automatic). Currently there is no auto trans available with the 1.8 engine. The auto trans will ALSO be available with the hatchback as well (note the pics that Martin just posted - it's a 1.5 with a auto in it), it will probably be BELOW 70,000rmb (hatchbacks usually cost less than their 4 door siblings). Good choice for Geely to offer a auto trans with this hatchback - the (Buick) HRV costs about 90,000rmb with a automatic and the (BYD) F3R doesn't offer one at all. I don't know about the upcoming (Brilliance) FRV and whether it will have a automatic available, but for right now Geely has got the lowest priced hatchback with a available auto trans (in this size range). It's also one of the nicest LOOKING Geelys yet (which might not be saying too much, based on earlier models) and if this is a example of the future of Geely, I think it will be a good future for them!!

Geely MK sedan on sale in 21 Russian cities

June 27, 2008 - The first batch of 3,000 Geely MK sedans produced by China's homegrown private automaker Geely Automobile have been put on sale in 25 Geely 4S stores in 21 Russian cities. The "Chinese King Kong" (as Geely MK is called) is expected to reverse the recent sluggish sales of Chinese sedans in Russia.

The Geely MK sedans of different configurations sell in Russia at prices between 319,000 rubles ($13,600) and 369,000 rubles. As the most expensive Chinese sedan sold in 4S stores rather than in outdoors markets, Geely MK will greatly enhance the brand image of Chinese sedans in Russia. Following the Geely MK sedan, Geely FC (Vision) will also go on sale in Geely's 4S stores in the Russian market, which will have three more models of this brand this year, and two more next year.

Red Dragon Company, a member of the largest Russian dealer of imported cars - Rolf Group, will specialize in sales of the Geely brand in Russia and aims to sell 15,000 Geely sedans this year. The Geely 4S stores in Russia will double to 50 by the end of this year. The C-class sedan Geely MK to be sold at the Russian market will come in three configurations - Base, Comfort and Elegance. All cars are going to be equipped with a 1.5-liter engine, 94 hp, which is an in-house development of the Chinese carmaker.

Both the Geely MK and Geely FC meet the Euro ECE and Euro III standards for the Russian market. The Russian government is optimistic about the prospects of China's Geely Auto and hopes that Geely will become of the favorite Chinese auto brands in Russia.

Re: Geely MK (King Kong)

The Zhonghua FRV 1.3 is 1.000 RMB cheaper and the BYD F3R 1.5 costs even the same as the King Kong hatchback. The FRV and the F3R are both a class bigger than the Geely and looks much better (especially the FRV). So who in China would buy a Geely King Kong hatchback with those high prices?
