Are Geely going to sell the TX4 Taxi cab in China?
We were thinking the other day, back to the days of the 70s and 80s when every kid on the street said he was a martial arts expert, efforts to coerce the kid into showing off some his deadly martial arts were always in vein. Carl Douglas sang about Kung Fu fighting, where everyone was as fast as lightening.an ancient Chinese art so the song went. The deadly martial arts seem to have gone right out of fashion this year, martial arts as just so passe when you can pull off being British. Nanjing MG, Roewe, and now even Geely are getting in on the act, at the Shanghai auto show 2007 Geely proudly showed off the TX4 taxi cab that they have been contracted to build.
It seems plans are under foot to use the car in China, perhaps knocking the Chinese taxi workhorse, the VW Santana and the smaller Jetta, off the road in favor of a national brand
Apr. 24, 2007 (China Knowledge) Geely Group, the nations largest privately owned carmaker, may form a national taxi network to boost sales of the London black cabs it plans to begin making in Shanghai next year, Geely chairman Li Shufu said at the Shanghai Auto Show, where the company debuted the first Chinese-made model of the London black cab.
