Re: future Geely TX sedan

I thought Geely has learned its lessons with the introduction of the FC-2 and FC-3. But this looks horrible: it's a Geely Vision with a copied front fascia from the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.



But the letters 'SMA' at the right back of the car suggest this is a Shanghai Maple, so is Geely's TX brand the successor of the Shanghai Maple brand?

Shanghai Maple SL1

According to China Car Times, SMA have released a new car, the SL1. Set to revitalize Geely and indeed SMA, the SL1 soprts a new 'look' and is based on the Geely Yuan Jing. Prices start from around 70,000rmb.



This is typical of SMA. Not very good:mad:

The designers copied interior of BYD F3 which is already itself a copy of old Corolla:

Even outside design is nothing special in my oppinion. But interior is completely outdated.
Judging from that, I assume mechanics is also not up-to-date, probably just transferred from old Geely models. Hopefuly at least price will be competitive, i.e. low.

Re: Geely SC618

So let me see if I can get this straight...This model was derived from a Geely Vision based on a Corolla, which was also known as an FC-1, a Yuanjing, a Biao Wang, an SL-1 Sea Wave, and now is being marketed by the Maple Division as a Geely SC618 under the Englon brand series......:confused:

Maybe Jianghuai Auto (JAC) won the rights to the old "Vision" name.
When I first heard FC I thought it was a Freedom Cruiser but no, that's too logical_ the Freedom Cruiser is a CK-1.
