GM and Geely: the battle from the Beijing Auto Show

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

For Auto China 2010, which starts on April 23 in Beijing, we should expect a smorgasbord of displays from both domestic and global carmakers. Of course, each carmaker will be competing for attention.

One of the most anticipated face-off involves Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co. and General Motors Co. Certainly, these two carmakers won't put on an ordinary show. Geely will display 39 models while GM will display 28 -- many of these models being new ones.

Geely asserts that it will display 11 all-new models on stage at the event. Meanwhile, GM said that it will show six new models for the first time in front of a Chinese audience.

This includes the Chevy Volt MPV5 concept, the Cadillac Converj Concept, the Cadillac XTS concept, the Chevy Aveo RS concept, the two-box Chevy New Sail and the new Chevy Spark.

Both carmakers have had their press conferences. Last week, Geely held an event in Beijing with several company executives describing the long list of new models and powertrain technologies that will be showcased at the show.

Last Monday, GM China executives were in Shanghai to conduct a briefing of its ambitious growth plans for China over the medium and long-term. [via autonews]
