Geely Emgrand EC718 Arrives in August
According to theautochannel.com, the EC718 will be powered by a brand new 4G-N series gasoline engine, which makes use of a exhaust dual-variable valve timing system, a feat which in turn makes it Euro 6 emission standard compliant.
The Chinese manufacturer, lacking any other point of comparison, took the EC718 and place it along side the Toyota Corolla. The Geely sedan has a 50 mm longer wheelbase, is 29 mm wider and 95 mm longer.
Geely says the car was designed to meet every European and American standards in safety, emissions and material recycling. "This model takes the advantage of low cost that is the key feature of Japan and Korea model, as well as high quality requirement in European market with little risk of design," Geely said in a release.
The new Geely Sedan will enter production at the Ningbo Base facility. Geely again assures us the plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, as it adopts molds from Japan Fuji and painting line similar to Brilliance BMW, again to insure the EC718 meets European standards.
Geely is also preparing a hatchback version of the EC718, set to be released in the near future. On the other hand, what we did understand from Geely's announcement of the new sedan is that it meets all European standards. It comes in China this August and we are left to wonder if an European bound EC718 isn't already in the works...
