Chinese automaker looks to patent VW Taigun copy before original goes on sale
The profile is nearly a carbon copy of the stylish new mini-CUV, while there's an incremental degree of originality in the front and rear of the car, with ever so slight styling tweaks. According to IndianAutosBlog, Jiangsu Lake came up with a name as original as the car its patenting: "SUV." This is far, far, far from the first time Chinese designers have blatantly stolen the design of a western vehicle, as IAB points out, but so far as we can recall, it's the first time a Chinese brand has attempted to patent the stolen design. Volkswagen should be lawyering up any minute.
