Wuling City EV Is A Volkswagen e-UP!, BMW i3 Knock Off
China’s newest city electric vehicle takes (lifts) design cues from both the Volkswagen e-Up! and the BMW i3.
Spy photos show that the Wuling City EV looks like some ugly cross between the e-Up! and the BMW i3. The design element of the i3 seen in the Wuling City EV is the drop-down black portion on the front door. Note that this design element is much more dramatic on the Wuling City EV.
Meanwhile, out back, the Wuling City EV clearly draws heavily from the Volkswagen e-Up!
These Chinese knock offs have a history of being mostly junk. We suspect that perhaps the Wuling City EV will be no different. It will debut in concept form this November at the Guangzhou Auto Show before entering production in 2015.
No specs or pricing information is available at this time.
