Faraday Future Exec Claims NIO Eve Is A Poor Clone Of FF 91

MAR 28 2017 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 8

Following the reveal of the NIO Eve, Faraday Future Senior Vice President of Product Research & Development, Nick Sampson, took to Twitter to call out NIO for what he believes is a clone job of the Faraday Future FF91.

Sampson stated:

“the design language is so similar.. and the wheels! ..our design was settled well over a year ago… leaks!!”

Below are the images posted to Twitter by Sampson:

Looks Rather Similar To Us

By leaks, Sampson is likely referring to design information spilled by an employee who left FF awhile back to join the NIO team.

We should note that both Faraday and NIO are Chinese-backed companies, and that the cloning of cars seems to be a very common practice among Chinese automakers.

Here are some additional images for comparative purposes:

Given me a break. The FF looks like a hodge podge of a lexus rx350 back end, lucid air headlights, dodge taillights, and BMW iBranding. Is it really a clone if it looka better?

Since neither exist it is a war of drawings.

Tesla Bargain

As I always say, sometimes it just has to go fast. But what are the chances that any of these go to production in any numbers anytime in the foreseeable future anyway?

THEY’RE BOTH PIPE DREAMS….And production will never see the light of day.. & if it does it won’t last long.

Stealing and copying technology is de rigueur for Chinese companies. It’s even ingrained in their government’s business development plan.

A Faraday Failure Future exec is complaining about another company copying them? Seriously?

No only is it galactically hypocritical of a wannabe Tesla imitator like FF to complain about another wannabe EV maker copying them, it’s also laughably absurd to think that any other company would intentionally try to imitate FF!

+1 for the Three Stooges reference!
