How do you say 'lazy designers' in Chinese? Coolbear.

Great Wall Automobile Xiong debuted this, the Coolbear, last week in China, proving, once again, that originality is a scarce commodity when it comes to Chinese car design.

Although an argument could be made that it's hard to make a rolling box not look like a Scion xB, it would seem that Great Wall didn't even try. We suspect the designers made charcoal etchings of everything from the belt-line to the c-pillar, brought them back to the office, handed them to the fabricating team, then went out for a cool beer. Nice logo, though.
