The Geely CK is a sedan automobile from Chinese manufacturer, Geely Automobile. Production began in May, 2005. The "CK" name stands for "Freedom Ship" or "Free Cruiser". It is sold as Geely Otaka on russian market.

The CK holds the distinction of being the first Chinese automobile ever displayed at an American auto show, although it was only shown to the press and not the general public. Geely plans to begin selling the model in Puerto Rico in 2007 on the way to beginning sales in America the next year. The CK was also shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005 along with four other Geely models.

The CK is based on a South Korean design by Daewoo, Tower Metal, Wooshin Systems, and CES, which Geely licensed. Its 1.5 L engine is a Toyota Motor Corporation design, also licensed. It produces 94 hp (70 kW) at 6000 rpm. The automatic transmission is built in China, the first to be manufactured there.

Recently, it has been shown that the vehicles are extremely unsafe in collisions [Cite web|url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vAN2cx2UIE |title=YouTube video on crash test of the Geely CK (Otaka)|accessdate=2008-06-11|work=autoreview.ru] . Comparing the video to other available crash tests, it shows that the collision protection for the occupants is worse than a Volkswagen Golf Mk1.
