The Chinese manufacturer Geely is about to enter the UK’s new car market and the first models will arrive at the end of 2012. Geely International Corporation has reached agreement with the UK’s Manganese Bronze Holdings plc (MBH) to become their distributor for the UK for the sale of new Geely cars, the supply of parts, to establish a dealer network and to provide an after-sales service. The UK distributor operation will be known as Geely Auto UK.
Geely cars are already suitable for Europe and meet EU homologation and whole vehicle type approval and Euro 5 emissions. They are all well equipped products but at affordable prices and will carry a five-year, 100,000 mile warranty. The first Emgrand EC7 models to arrive are likely to have a range starting price of approximately £10,000.
