Landwind E32 blatantly copies Range Rover Evoque

Evoque's Chinese cousin

Several patent photos of the Landwind E32 have surfaced the web, showing a totally unoriginal design.

It's one thing to "borrow" a few styling ideas from other automakers but it's totally wrong to completely rip-off an entire design. Ironically, these are actually patent photos of the Landwind E32 as owner Jiangling Motor Corporation wants to own the rights for this design.

This is clearly a copy of the five-door Range Rover Evoque from every possible angle and will come out in China in the fourth quarter of the year. It rides on a shorter version of the Landwind X8 and will be offered exclusively with a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine outputting 190 PS (140 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft). The motor will be coupled to either a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 8-speed automatic transmission.

Pricing of the Landwind E32 is estimated to kick off at around 120,000 yuan (19,200 USD / 13,800 EUR / 11,400 GBP).

'Landwind' somehow redirects my brain to 'Earthfart'.

I don't think Land Rover would give a damn as they fully well know this car will NEVER EVER be a success anywhere but china while the real Evoque was and still is a global hit. LR are probably gonna sit back and watch it fail.

What makes me laugh is the fact they are copyrighting their copy... No one else better copy our copy or we'll take them to court for copyright infringement... oh wait

I like their cheek. It's hilarious. I wonder if they got Michelle Yeoh to style the interior?

Those output figures for the engine seem very similar to that of the Evoque's EcoBoost engine, alongside the 6-speed manual gearbox.

Huh, go figure the Chinese copying the Indians. Another reason I would never buy a Volvo or a Land/Range Rover.

You missed the POINT entirely, Volvo is owned by a Chinese car company and Land Rover by a Indian Car company called Tata. BMW is still one of the only car companies in this world that never needed financial assistance from anyone. That X5 copy has been around for years along with many more BMW copies by the shameless Chinese.

you're right I'm still missing the point.. what does a replica have to do with Land Rover being owned by Tata?

Well, there's some solace in the knowledge that these things usually don't succeed and end up having low sales figures ( Chery QQ excepted )

Of course, it's not like it will outsell Evoque, but copying without a permission is called stealing isn't it? Or even using part of the work as your own is illegal, so why would this be allowed? I would sue the sh** out of these Chinese bastar*s, but usually Chinese court just goes, "well it doesn't at all look like...".
