The Geely-Emgrand EC8 debuted at the Beijing Auto Show. The EC8 was formerly known as Geely-Emgrand EC825, Geely decided to ditch ’25’. Geely said the EC8 would be on the market ‘in the second half of 2010’. Well, ain’t that now?, but yet no trace of the EC8 at the dealers. It won’t be long though before it finally gets there, these pictures show the interior of the poduction version of the EC8. Chinese like fake wood, check. Chinese like fake alu: check. Chinese like fake wood and fake alu in the same interior: check. A Geely-job wel done.

The Geely-Emgrand EC825 will roll of the line soon. A brand new car was spotted on a truck close to the factory and one photographer could take all time to snap away. Most interesting detail was under the bonnet.
