 Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us
This past week saw many new production and concept cars making their world premiere at the increasingly important from a global point view, Shanghai Auto 2011. One of the most prominent brands of the show is Geely Auto, the Chinese automaker and owner of Volvo Cars, which displayed 37 vehicles along with its latest R&D achievements.

 Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.usHeadlining the Chinese automaker’s presence at the show is a hybrid concept vehicle called the McCAR and five new models that the company says will soon enter production and include the Gleagle GC6, Gleagle GX6, Gleagle GS-CC Coupe, Emgrand EC6-RV and Englon SC7-RV. Head over the jump for more details and photos.

Geely McCAR

We’re not sure how Geely came up with its name, but the McCAR is a concept study for a sub-compact model with enough space to pack a small foldable electric scooter behind the rear hatch. The urban commuter is designed to be equipped with either a gasoline-electric hybrid or a fully electric powertrain with a 12kW battery, good enough for a driving range of around 150 kilometers or 93 miles.

The GC6 is an affordable compact-size family sedan with a wheelbase of 2,600mm [168.9-in.] that measures 4,470mm in length [176-in.], 1,730mm in width [68.1-in.], and 1,500mm in height [59.0-in.]. Geely says the four-door model is designed to compete against cars like the new Nissan Sunny, which will be sold as the 2012 Nissan Versa in the States.

One of Geely’s most interesting proposals is the GX6 small crossover that features a very Kia-like interior design. The GX6 has a 2461mm long wheelbase, and measures 4,120mm long, 1,755mm wide, and 1,600mm tall. The company said the crossover model can be equipped with the firm’s 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated or 1.3-liter turbocharged engines combined with either automatic or manual transmissions.

Gleagle GS-CC

At the Shanghai Show, Geely launched a coupe-convertible version of its GS Cabrio, called the GS-CC. The two-door model features a two-piece electrically folding hardtop that stows away in the trunk at a push of a button. It is based on the same platform architecture as the GX6 crossover sharing the same 1.5-liter and 1.3-liter Turbo powerplants.

Emgrand EC6-RV

The Emgrand EC6-RV is small hatchback model with a design that appears to have been influenced by one or more cars from Mini’s lineup. The five-door hatch measures 3,845mm long, 1,763mm wide, and 1,430mm tall, with power coming from either a 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated four, or a 1.3-liter turbocharged engine with a manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Englon SC7-RV


 Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us

Being a part owner of Manganese Bronze, the maker of the famous London Black Taxis, Geely thought it would be a good idea to introduce a local version inspired (but not based on) by the original model. The SC7-RV's styling is an odd mix of classic and modern lines with the car measuring 4,390mm in length, 1,820mm in width, and 1,555mm in height. Power comes from a variety of gasoline and diesel engines matted to either manual or automatic gearboxes.
