Experts presented the top five most successful automotive clones from ChinaMay 10, 2019
Chinese industry is a rather interesting separate topic. The local government does not prevent partial plagiarism, which creates favorable conditions for the emergence of numerous clones.
It is very often that Chinese cars are very similar to models of world brands. Sometimes the similarity is so obvious that it is difficult for an inexperienced person to distinguish a fake from the original from the first time. Experts decided to find the top five of the most successful of the clones.
In the first place was the model Huansu C60, which is a confident and reliable clone of the Lamborghini Urus. Of course, the resemblance is only external, we are not talking about internal stuffing. Although it is worth noting that the model is very similar to Urus, but it is not a direct copy. Every detail, slightly, but different from the original. Under the hood is hidden 1.5-liter engine.
The second place is taken by the unsuccessful hack of the Shandong Qilu Fengde P8, which borrowed design ideas from Bugatti Chiron. However, Chinese engineers and designers, apparently, did not have enough budget to create a really interesting copy. In fact, it is a toy for adults, equipped with an electric motor for 3 (three) horsepower. The price starts at $ 5,040.
BAIC BJ80 is a good cheap alternative to the legendary Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The model almost completely, except for some details, copies the German SUV of the last generation. All the differences are in the front with a different optics and a different grille.
Brilliance V5 is an attempt to create something similar to the successful BMW X1. Although there is a similarity, it is impossible to confuse these models.
Changan X70A is almost the exact copy of the fourth generation Land Rover Discovery. However, the model is exclusively urban and is offered only with front-wheel drive.
