Geely in Russia: seriously and for a long time?


The Chinese car maker has opened in one day ten new dealer centers in the territory of the country of the Photo at once: Geely the Chinese car maker Geely who possesses the Swedish company Volvo has opened in Russia 10 new dealer centers executed according to modern standards of the company at once. The opening ceremony has taken place at the same time in Moscow, St. Petersburg, the Moscow region, Bryansk, Voronezh, Ryazan, Yoshkar-Ola, Izhevsk and Surgut. And, in the capital, the company of "Butts", dealer holding which for twenty years was monobranded and sold only models of the Swedish Volvo brand became one of dealers of Geely. Probably this time has decided to locate by Geely in our market seriously and for a long time. What this attempt — I find it difficult to tell. The Geely cars entered our market, through distributor network, left it. Personally I have got acquainted with models of the Chinese company more than 10 years ago, and then the car maker had big plans for our market. Models, however, were not the most successful. The compact Otaka sedan and model of a golf class — FC. Poor quality of finishing materials, peculiar, to put it mildly, design and mediocre running characteristics. Since then, certainly, a lot of things have changed. Geely has taken not a step, but a set of steps forward what tell also latest models of the company about, including Atlas crossover. By the way, within opening of the new dealer centers, Geely has presented in Russia and new generation of the Emgrand 7 sedan. The machine already has the corporate style, a characteristic front grille and salon which is similar and isn't inferior to modern analogs, for example, to Korean any more. The car is equipped with the 1,8 l line 4-cylinder engine with a power of 133 hp which works in a compartment, or with the mechanical transmission, or with a variator. Geely Emgrand 7.

Basic modification of Geely of Emgrand 7 was estimated at 880 thousand rubles — top will cost 970 thousand. There will be also more available version of the sedan, with the 1,5-liter engine later. Besides, in Geely plan further expansion and model scale in Russia. Probably, the most anticipated is the crossover of a compact class B which will have to compete with such models as Hyundai Creta, Ford Ecosport and Renault Duster.
