New Geely Emgrand EC7 Gains Euro NCAP 4-Star Safety Rating

LONDON – Dec 12, 2011: Although not entering the UK new car market until the end of 2012, already the Chinese manufactured Geely Emgrand EC7, being imported by Geely Auto UK, has undergone the latest 2011 Euro NCAP safety testing programme.

The Geely Emgrand EC7 received four stars, one of six new models to achieve the same rating. The other models were the Jaguar XF, Renault Fluence ZE, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Fiat Panda and the MG6.

Michiel van Ratingen, Euro NCAP’s Secretary General said, “These results mark a milestone for the Chinese automotive industry. It is a clear sign that Chinese car makers are building on recent experiences and rapidly investing in better vehicle safety. Even with the upcoming increased demands, five stars are expected to be within reach soon.”
