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 over-done grille, looks quite attractive. The GT emanates from Geely's new top-level Emgrand sub-brand and scores some impressive specs. It is reportedly a plug-in hybrid with a 2.4-liter inline-four that churns out 160 horsepower and 165 foot-pounds 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. It's not clear which axle is being driven by the engine and which gets the motors. The Emgrand GT is targeted for a 2014 introduction.
