Proton under Geely - the future models

19 Jul 2018 | Glenn Brooks

The final Geely group brand to have its current future passenger vehicles assessed is Proton. Due to unremarkable cars, a home nation where the annual market remains well below three quarters of a million vehicles and poor marketing in the few countries it has tried to export to, the formerly state-run firm is a lacklustre operation. Could a cash infusion and a management shake-up transform the firm?

Lotus under Geely - what's the plan?

17 Jul 2018 | Glenn Brooks

Could Geely become as big as Volkswagen AG?

28 Jun 2018 | Glenn Brooks

Might the Geely group one day become China's number one car maker? Looking at how rapidly it has expanded in recent years, it would be foolish to consider that owner Li Shufu is content with what he already has. The latest series of just-auto's ongoing examination of the world's OEMs now turns to Zhejiang Geely Holding Group (ZGH) and its many car brands.

Groupe PSA future models analysis - Citroen

15 Jun 2018 | Glenn Brooks

In this second chapter of a series concerning Groupe PSA's divisions, the spotlight turns on Citroën. Unlike Peugeot, which was recently examined, this famous make remains distressed. Sales continue to fall in France even though new models have been steadily flowing during the last 12 months. The picture is equally concerning in many other countries, including China.
