Geely’s bosses announced last week that they will waive that mark by 2012. Chinese Corporation will not give up, however, the production cars, Geely brand waiver is only a marketing position to hand over the sub-brands Gleagle, Englon and Shanghai Emgrand to promote in China and international.
Emgrand brand is the luxury division of Geely, while Gleagle is Chinese world brand name and an acronym for Global Eagle.
Market withdrawal of Geely brand will be complete with moving Freedom Ship, Yuan Jing to Gleagle and moving King Kong and Golden Eagle to Shanghai Englon.
Once completed this marketing maneuver, the Chinese will be ready to close Geely. It is unclear whether Geely corporate name will be changed or not.
