Geely Automobile (simplified Chinese: 吉利汽车; traditional Chinese: 吉利汽車; pinyin: Jí Lì Qì Chē) (SEHK: 0175) is a Chinese automaker and is the first independent automobile manufacturer in the People's Republic of China. The parent company is Geely Holding Group (吉利控股集团). Geely started in 1986 as a manufacturer of refrigerators, then moved to manufacturing decoration materials in 1989, and by 1992, motorcycle parts. In 1994, Geely began manufacturing motorcycles. By 1996, Geely had produced over 200000 motorcycles and scooters. Automobile production started in 1998. Geely began exporting its first cars in 2003. Geely had its IPO in 2004. Geely's chairman and founder, Li Shufu, wants to sell two-thirds of the company's output overseas, though he is noncommitted as to when that could happen. In a March 2005 forum held in Beijing, he was quoted as saying: We must make cars like people from Wenzhou make [a quarter of the world's] lighters. But developing a car industry is like growing one tree slowly to cover a whole forest. Li relinquished the CEO title to Yue Guisheng in February 2006 to comply with Hong Kong Stock Exchange regulations. He remains chairman.

    @MetroFunX Ye lol… You don’t want to see the E-NCAP test from this car.

  6. inderdeepa says:

    This is bull. 1st they probably got a jap car, made it look like a chinese car, we know they r good at it and crashed it. 2nd no way this is an NCAP test as the slow mo vid was a blur.. never happens in a NCAP test. they always have high speed cams. this a scam nothing more.

  7. DenisioDelBoro says:

    According to my calculations, speed was 40-42 km per hour, or 25 mph.

  8. MetroFunX says:

    omg lowspeed crashtest, 100% frontal.
    C-NCAP :)
    i dont think that anybony would be alive if it would be with 40mph an 50% offset^^

  9. tuberrifico says:

    Me love you Geely long time

  10. nick76dune says:

    The speed must have been 25 mph, and the impact is full frontal…should have been 50% off set –
    To the Chinese car makers the safety is not a priority, and neither is quality

  14. comunerooo says:

  15. Renceau says:

  16. fucktibetuighurs says:

    @TheONEWELL kid, you know fukcing nothing about vehcle, at least it shows the car confront with100% front impact is good, u cannot say it is dangerouse untill u see the whole technical detail.

    @Speedy, remember I told you there are no perfect cars, when you said Honda is perfect, since Honda just announced a recall for an airbag problem. Although to be fair, I still think Japanese cars are well built, efficient and reliable.

  18. SpeedingStudent says:

    There is no excuse for such flaws.

  19. Maohammet says:

    @speedy, what do you think of the Toyota rcalls, NYT article basically says there is a more serious problem with the electronics, not just a loose mat. Looks like Toyota will take a big hit. NYT also reported that many died in the toyota accidents.
