Some time ago the automobile market pleasantly surprised consumers and upset competitors with emergence of new automobile brands. To the world scene there were Chinese producers. Geely was one of these brands. The history of origin of the company originates in near the 80th. Then, on November 6, 1986, Li Shufu who is chairman of the board today, founded Geely Holding Group diversified company. At that time the company was very far from production of cars and developed the different directions. All began with production of refrigerators and accessories to them.
In 1992, after the conclusion of the partner agreement with the Japanese company Honda, Geely Group Co I started being engaged in production of accessories to motorcycles and scooters. In 1994 the first own motorcycle was made. Two years later the number of the made motorcycles and motor scooters reached an indicator in 200 000 units. And in a year the Geely company started assembly of cars.
On August 8, 1998 in the city of Linghai the first car of the Geely brand which debuted at a national exhibition in the province of Zhejiang was released. Three years of Geely Group Co later., Ltd was recognized by the first private carmaker in China.
In 2004 the number of the released cars made 96 000, and in 2005 exceeded a level in 140 000 copies. However the company continued to develop actively. Every year the model range of Geely was replenished with 2-3 models. So in 2005 on a motor show in Frankfurt the model of a five-seater sedan of a class B - Geely CK was presented. Excellent spacious salon, a capacious luggage carrier of 480 liters, armrests with ware compartments – everything in this model was made for convenience of passengers and the driver.
The design of the dashboard is executed in modern dynamic style. Under a cowl at this car the 1,5 liters four-cylinder engine and 94 h.p. was placed. The initial complete set switched on the conditioner and the CD radio tape recorder. Thanks to a back independent suspension bracket, this car is considered one of the fastest in the class. The gasoline consumption around the city makes 7,5 liters, and this one more advantage of a sedan of this producer.1 - 36
