    Geely is the biggest car company, that you’ve never heard of. Their Chinese badge may be only 30 years old, but in that time, they’ve managed to sell millions of cars, like the Geely Haoqing, and the Geely Borui, win an FIA manufacturer’s cup, and set a lap record at the Nurburgring in the Lynk & Co.'s Lynk 03. But how in the world did they go from making unreliable cars in the 90s to BUYING VOLVO? And what made the founder so mad that he drove a steamroller over an entire lot of cars? Join James Pumphrey as he gets you up to speed, on the largest Chinese car brand you've never heard of.

Geely not only invest VOLVO, but also help VOLVO open Chinese market. That really saves the brand. Anyway Geely benefit from the business too. It is good for both sides. Actually Geely originally want is Landrover in Mr. Li's heart because the Landrover is buy out business, not just investment.

In my country Malaysia, we have our own national car call Proton. Our Protons were mostly rebranded vehicles from Mitsubishi, a Honda Accord and some other brands. Recently we added an SUV call X70 and it is actually from Geely 🤣. Great SUV though but rebranding another car from other countries and calling it our national car is really our shame. Our first national car in 1985 was a Mitsubishi which we call Proton Saga. A new Proton saga was introduced after about 20 years to replace the old. Most brands introduce a new model of the same type of name every 4 years in average but we took 20 years 🤣 Malaysia is great 🙌🙌🙌🤣

The CCP is too busy, in addition to the 1.4 billion Chinese, they have to monitor every unknown bastard on the planet. I think they must have a hard drive larger than Germany. This is not the case for Americans, the americans are the real expert who generally only monitor important people, such as Angela Merkel's cell phone.

1st, Zhejiang is not a small village, it is a province, it is 105500 km² large and its population is 58 million. Li Shu Fu was born in a small city called Taizhou https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taizhou,_Zhejiang and unlike other Chinese business men on that time, he is well educated, he graducated from Harbin Institute of Technology, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harbin_Institute_of_Technology 2ed, Haoqing in fact is not the 1st hit of Geely or I should say it is not the model which made Geely become a well known brand in China. It is Uliou https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geely_MR

Here in the Philippines, we were ahead of Malaysia when they released the Coolray or the X50 or S11. So far, the best Chinese car we have seen compared to many chinese cars now entering our country. Cant believe it's Volvo, but when you drive it, you'd be a lot surprise for its performance, reliability, appearance, and features. It is very affordable and you'll be amaze by how Geely has put a lot of work to come up with this unit. I hope Lynx @ Co and Polestar would be available here soon, also from Geely.
