Geely Emgrand GT – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Geely Emgrand GT is another example of the automaker's apparent seriousness about being considered a top-flight player in the industry. This coupe features classic sports car proportions and aside from the overdone grille, it looks quite attractive. The GT comes from Geely's new top-level Emgrand sub-brand and boasts some impressive specs. It's reportedly a plug-in hybrid with a 2.4-liter inline-four that churns out 160 horsepower and 165 pound-feet on its own.

That output is supplemented by a pair of 27.5-kilowatt hub motors that give the GT all-wheel-drive capability. Those motors each add 132 foot-pounds of torque as well. It's not clear, however, which axle is being driven by the combustion engine and which gets the motors. The Emgrand GT is targeted for a 2014 introduction.

      I'd be more concerned about the quality of the metallurgy, or lack thereof. If mainland Chinese-made scooters are any indication (Geely makes those too), this thing is liable to fissure and self-destruct in the the most unlikely of places, in ways never seen before.

      The rear is not bad, but the front is something you would see in one of those sci-fi movies on the 50s..............

      Saying this car " looks quite attractive", "aside from the overdone grille" is like saying "Anne Ramsey was quite attractive aside from her nose." Its a bit though to overlook.

        It seems like they'll stick with that grille. This concept has seen 3 iterations (debut back in 2008), and it's kept the grille. Not only that, Geely slapped this grille onto another one of their concepts.

        Let's hope Geely doesn't make it their corporate grille. Oh boy the mere thoughts of that is giving me goosebumps.

      Where do these Chinese companies get their designers? In this country, many of those who style cars at GM, Ford, and Chrysler are graduates of Art Center College of Design in California. But do Chinese car designers work part-time at stying cars and . . . what . . . clean fish the rest of the time at local restaurants or something? I mean, really, it's obvious where they're getting their inspiration for the looks of most of the cars shown at Bejing(!).

      The front end of this looks like the result of a duel 'to the pain.'

      ...I can just picture little children shrieking, 'dear God, what is that THING?'

      Just looks like the pontiac solstice to me.

      What a dramatic design. The curves seem to go on forever like a flowing river. It looks like something Batman would drive.

      The grille is a must go feature on it but its still far better then the clever Acura design, other then that the design is better overall then some other cars out there and the plug-in hybrid tech is cool. Just bring'em to north america already and we will find out if they can back up their claims or if they are just a pile of rubish.

      Gee, I wonder where they got their inspiration for the exterior design...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Uhhhhh, no. Not "attractive" at all. Obviously there's not concern about "pedestrian safety" designs in China now required by the EU...

      Anyone else notice in the little card of information about the car, it says "L4 + Electric Motor/Battery = V8 AWD"
