Range Rover Suing Chinese Copycat
Jaguar Land Rover(JLR) is suing Chinese automaker Jiangling Motor for allegedly copying the British firm’s Range Rover Evoque.
Despite their strikingly similar designs, the Evoque costs three times the price of Jiangling’s Landwind.
Jaguar, which is owned by India’s Tata Motors, said in a statement that a court in Beijing served Jiangling with newly filed actions surrounding copyright and unfair competition. The suit relates to Jiangling’s Landwind X7 sport utility vehicle copying the design of the Evoque, JLR’s first China-made model that went on sale last year.
