Geely's London Taxi Coming To Detroit Auto Show, Sale In US

Put on your finest top hat governor! Among the cars that Geely will be bringing to the Detroit Auto Show this year is the London Taxi, which as its name suggests is their version of the recognizable black English cab. The Chinese automaker has made a deal with the largest British maker of these cabs (Manganese Bronze Holdings) to produce the classy black boxes in Shanghai on-the-cheap and then hopefully bring them to the US for sale by 2010. The free market works! Below are some photos of the British TX4 version:

Geely will likely also bring versions of the Free Cruiser, China Dragon, Vision and Sea Breeze to Detroit. We'll be there to cover all of the cross-border, cross-cultural fun. [Auto News Europe (Sub. Req.)]
