    Billion-dollar EV startup unveils its first models photoshopped on a Mitsubishi Outlander

    [​IMG]

    In a profile published back in August, Bloomberg revealed a new electric vehicle startup founded by the former Geely executive who oversaw the takeover of Volvo, Freeman Shen, and reported that they managed to raise over $1 billion in just over a year in order to launch mass-market electric vehicles by 2018.

    The company called WM Motor unveiled its first 3 models this week through press content sent to Chinese media and now making its way to international media. It appears that one of the first concepts of this billion-dollar EV startup is simply photoshopped images based on promotional pictures of the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander. more…

    True, @garsch, yet I believe that, over time, this initial & blatant tendency out of China to produce (generally) uglier copycats of previously successful models from the Western world will diminish... First, there will be a gradual concentration of the current hundreds of local makers into a much more limited number of increasingly global players, then forced to offer more quality-oriented models with a more differentiated design (between now and 2025). Moreover, the advent of EV, more & more in demand over there because of massive pollution present in the large coastal cities, will force Chinese designers, initially aided by mercenary Western specialist, will drive (pun intended :p) more and more innovation ...
    Will have the opportunity to take a fresh look at what's out there now as I spend 4-5 days in a Shanghai as of Saturday night...

    As an aside, attaching a pic of the current footprint of T≡SLA store and chargers in the greater Shanghai area today... amazing, no...?

    Have a nice day...
    Best regards, Mike
