GM and Geely will fight hard for limelight in Beijing

At the 2010 Beijing Motor Show next week, two automakers will fight really hard to steal the limelight – General Motors and a young domestic Chinese player – Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co. (which recently purchased Volvo from FoMoCo).

Both companies will put far more on the show floor than other automakers. For example, Geely has plans to display 39 models while GM has plans to show 28 models. They will also show more new models than any other automakers at the show.

Geely says it will show eleven new vehicles on the stage in Beijing, meanwhile, GM has announced that it will show six new models to the Chinese audience for the first time. GM’s lineup will consist of the Chevrolet Volt, Cadillac Converj Concept, Cadillac XTS Concept, Chevrolet Aveo RS Concept, the Chevy New Sail and the new Chevy Spark.

Both companies have already held numerous events in Beijing prior to the auto show next week.
