Geely Englon TXN (w/ Gallery)Tue, 13 Apr 2010
Geely is poised to show 39 new vehicles at the forthcoming Auto China 2010 motor show in Beijing, among them will be this new TXN taxi. While most of the new cars on show won't be built around entirely new sheet metal - some will feature new powertrains, for example - the Englon TXN is indeed all-new.
Sitting in Geely's Englon range, a sub-brand initially created for the taxicab, the TXN is intended as a replacement for the aging TX4 built by British automaker LTI (as well as at Geely's Shanghai Maples factory). The new design features a pronounced front end with a large grille, employing elements of the current TX4's face, while the rear is strangely reminiscent of the previous generation Lancia Ypsilon and Mini Cooper, particularly the taillamps.
Other new Englon range vehicles on display at the show will include the SX6 SUV, GV5 and SV5 MPVs, SC5-RV and SC6 sedans, and the GX2 Cross minicar. See them all in our gallery below. We'll endeavor to bring you more details on these cars and others revealed at the Beijing show next week.
