Geely Holdings Group will begin mass production of a dual-fuel methanol-gasoline version of its Haifeng sedan by the end of the year. Earlier this year, Geely introduced a series of CNG dual-fuel vehicles.

The focus on alternative fuels is designed to contribute to meeting the government’s target of 10,000 “new energy vehicles” produced in China by 2010, and 10% of total vehicle production nationwide by 2012.
Geely is also developing a series of hybrids and a hydrogen vehicle. New energy vehicles include those fueled by CNG, methanol, hydrogen, biofuels, synthetic fuels, Dimethyl ether, and electricity—hybrid-electric vehicles, electric vehicles, and fuel cell vehicles.
