Geely's MagiC Car concept previews new taxi design
23 April 2012

Geely’s McCar is the second generation of mini motorbike-carrying concept the Chinese manufacturer has shown following the first-generation concept seen at last year’s Shanghai show.

McCar, or ‘MagiC Car’, has four seats which can be stowed away or removed completely to accommodate a mini motorcycle. The set-up also allows for a wheelchair to sit at the rear of the car.

The McCar is likely to form the basis of a taxi within the next three years. However, a partnership between Geely and British taxi-maker Manganese Bronze hasn’t been fruitful as the TX4 black cab’s thirsty petrol engines have proved unpopular since diesels were banned from China’s major cities.

Surely this will have all our Scottish posters up in arms, Geeley's McCar.

looks to me as if a Range Rover Evoque got a Suzuki Swift up the duff and this is the result.

I quite like the look of this one, but the name.....! the name! whoever thought up that one should be marched outside and physically abused.
