Shanghai Auto Show: Geely Mybo II concept

We showed you spy shots of this car earlier in the week, but our man on the floor in Shanghai met up with the Geely Meirenbao II on the show floor today. Apparently the Meirenbao on display today is the second generation of an earlier concept produced by Geely. The new model’s front clip has been compared by some to an R34 Nissan Skyline. We’ve got plenty of live shots showing the car from every angle, so we’ll let you be the judge of whether or not the Skyline has influenced Geely’s designers. This the first time we’ve seen the rear of the Meirenbao, and it appears as disconnected from the vehicle’s overall design as we guessed. We also noticed it would take a good arm to swing a suitcase or grocery bag up over that extremely high trunk lid.

Like most Chinese automakers, Geely exclaims its intent on entering the North American every chance it gets. We’re wondering what kind of reception a design like this would receive cruising down Woodward Ave. Either way, Geely gets an E for effort.
