Geely (officially Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co., Ltd) is a Chinese multinational automotive manufacturing company headquartered in Hangzhou, Zhejiang. Its principal products are automobiles, taxis, motorcycles, engines, and transmissions. It sells passenger cars under the Geely and Volvo brands and taxis under the London Taxi brand.

Geely has owned the Swedish passenger car maker Volvo Cars since 2010, when it acquired the company from Ford. It has owned the British taxi maker The London Taxi Company since 2012.

Geely has sold cars under at least three separate brands and may have continued to use the brand name of a purchased company for a short time. The Emgrand, Englon, and Gleagle names were phased out in 2014 alongside efforts to reduce sprawl, and the Shanghai Maple brand name was discontinued in 2010.

Products sold under the Emgrand brand included:

  • 2009 – Emgrand EC7 – 1.8 L CVVT sedan/hatchback
  • 2010 – Emgrand EC8 2.0L, 2.4L sedan
  • 2010 – Emgrand EC7-RV 1.5L, 1.8L hatchback
  • 2011 – Emgrand EX7 SUV

Launched in 2010 and replacing the Shanghai Maple brand, the company claimed Englon emulated classic, British style, and its model line included a TX4 sold on the Chinese market. Some of its cars were built by Geely subsidiary Shanghai LTI. As Geely fully acquired The London Taxi Company in 2013, the emblem of Englon also became the new logo of The London Taxi Company.

Gleagle is touted as an entry-level brand.

Some Gleagle cars, such as the Gleagle Panda, were available for sale on the Internet in China via the Taobao Mall, a popular e-commerce site. While Geely would deliver the car to the customer's address, buying one of the Panda models on offer did necessitate a trip to a traditional dealer.

Products sold under the Gleagle brand included:

  • A Gleagle GC7 

Gleagle products include:

  • 2008 — Gleagle Panda – 1.3L & 1.0 L CVVT hatchback, also known as the Geely LC
  • 2010 – Gleagle GX2 (Panda Cross) – 1.3/1.5 L
  • 2011 – Gleagle CK – 1.0/1.5 L, a rebadging of the Geely CK
