Anyway, some Chinese firms simply do 'knock offs' of western cars. Copyright means nothing in China and the courts will not help if you complain. Of course rather than upset Chinese authorities western firms have to accept blatant copyright infringements.
You can see an example here of the Range Rover Evoque. This one bears the name Landwind E32, made by the firm Jiangling Motor Corporation or JMC. I am sure if you looked beneath the bodywork, there would be a much inferior product to the original. However, when technology does eventually make its way to China, they will make much better copies.
They will never be able to sell this in Europe or North America, but most other nations will gladly let them in. I hope they are not death traps like many Chinese cars have proven to be, as the unsuspecting buyer deserves better than that.
