Chinese EV maker's latest clone takes on Range Rover
The Yueling X1 EV comes shortly after the appearance of the Landwind X7, which was a much better but just-as-shameless clone of the Range Rover Evoque. Land Rover lodged a complaint with Chinese authorities over Landwind's artistic license, and we'd say the Yueling X1 doesn't deserve acknowledgement except it uses the Range Rover font front and back, has a Land Rover badge on the tailgate, and BMW badges on the wheel center caps. Yes, BMW badges.
The interior is every bit the freakshow you'd expect, the Audi-inspired analog dash gauges proving that Yueling is liberal with its copycat love. There's a red button on the center console just ahead of the gearshift that's said to be a panic button, but we're not sure if it's meant to rescue someone from panic or incite it. Head over to Car New China for more pictures of Exhibit X1 in IP infringement travesties.
