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:

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.
