China's Landwind E32 shamelessly copies Range Rover Evoque

Whatever you are using or wearing is very likely made in China. Usually we are talking about American/European companies that are taking advantage of cheap labor, though Chinese companies are trying hard to come up with their own products in different niches and one of these that they haven’t mastered yet is the production of world class cars.

What you see here is Landwind E32 not patent drawings of a Range Rover Evoque.

It is unbelievable how closely it echoes the Evoque and it is even more surprising how companies can get away with this.

According to Car News China, the Landwind E32 is scheduled to go on sale in China in late 2014 for 120,000 yuan (£11,400) with power coming from a 190bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 184 lb-ft of torque, linked to either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic.

The side profile is almost identical and it takes a trained eye to spot the differences. The rear is also very identical, while the front does drift away little more from the Evoque, but still is recognisable. Even the Landwind name at the rear and front has the same styling as ‘Range Rover’ on the Evoque.
