China comes out with a weird-looking Range Rover clone

By Faiming_low on 29 Mar 2015 in Other News

Attached Image China comes out with a bad Range Rover clone called the Longer Yuelang X1 which is erm, kind of short. Shown last week at the Shandong Electric Vehicle Expo in Jinan City, this awkward-looking low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) has plenty of Range Rover styling clues all over it. Highlights of this clone are the 'Range' inscription up front and the 'ONEVROVER' at the back.
 
Attached Image And yes, it has BMW wheels that might actually need a wash. We believe they must have forgotten they are exhibiting their car at a show.
 
Attached Image Powered by a 3kw electric motor that is paired to a lead-acid battery, it can hit a maximum of 50km/h and has a range of 120km. Weighing in at 600kg, it will cost you S$6200.
 
Attached Image Eagle-eyed readers might notice the gear lever looking like its a manual gearbox and we wonder what the big red button in front of it would do.
 
Attached Image Let us know what do you think of this. We reckon the Land Rover guys must be laughing out now.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

If only they can get a picture of it getting stuck in the mud. That would complete the joke.

That thing looks hideous.

I have to ask (but I'm afraid to hear the answer): are the BMW wheels real, at least?

May I know what is the purpose of keep publishing negative news about China's Auto industries? Indeed there are significant improvement in new cars model by the big companies.

If you don't start from copy then how could you learn? Please go and read more about China's Auto industries.

Yes Calford, there are definitely a couple of decent cars out there built by the Chinese. 

 

Maybe, if they had been more tactful when it comes to 'copying', no one would have said anything negative :)

Meanwhile, do take a look at another example of a copy and let us know whether you would be happy if you've bought an Evoque recently.

Well, if they had any integrity, at least co-operate with the original car co to co-produce a variant, instead of shamelessly ripping off the original and not crediting the source.. in the literary world, this is called plagiarism.. like faiming_low replied, you can copy a car's exterior but you cannot reproduce its original quality... I'd rather take a merc SBS bus than ride in a china car.. at least I'll know I can reach my destination safely...lol.....any idea why the china brand cars didnt take off in SG, if they were of acceptable quality and low price? Granted some chinese car co are buying other foreign branded names car co lock stock and barrel, but it'll take time, real effort and a complete discard of the copycat/fast track mentality to create a world class car industry.. only time will tell...

Plagiarism aside, it does looks cute though ...

It'll be perfect if they could make it like this!

I know that you are using the 1st world standard to look at this. You are so much richer than those people in China. But you must try to understand why did they have to come out with this product. This is for the very poor people who want to own a car.

Though it look very similar, the review of the car was quite good in China.
