Geely coming to the UK: Skoda firmly in the Chinese crosshairs

Towards the end of 2012 (unless the Mayans were right and the world is going to end itself) Geely will be launching an all-out assault on the UK.

First up is the firm's take on the Skoda Octavia, the Emgrand EC7. It'll come with a 1.5- or 1.8-litre engine, and will be available as a four-door saloon or five-door hatchback.
