The Chinese clone Range Rover Evoque prepares to start marketing. This is the BMW X7 produced by Jiangling Motors in China. [1.99901 million]
E l is the Land Wind X7 blatant copy of the Range Rover Evoque , we met several months ago and now is ready to start marketing in China. While in principle Jaguar Land Rover had indicated that it would initiate legal action against Jiangling Motors , in May it was learned from the mouth of himself CEO of Land Rover Dr. Ralf Speth that the company chose to roll back the measure.
The BMW X7 will be commercially launched next month. [1.99901 million]
is that initially, when the clone was presented at the Guangzhou Motor Show in 2014, Jaguar Land Rover intended to adopt a firm stance against copying Landwind by his model Evoque. But Chinese laws do not cover such processes so that after all the shares end up in nothing.
That does not mean Jiangling Motors is meeting internationally established norms to regulate intellectual property, but unfortunately in the local market, there is little that can be done. Speth believes that the Chinese have enough creativdad and power engineering to achieve own designs without resorting to steal the ideas of others , but admit that they are legally powerless to address the situation in that country.
The BMW X7 goes on sale in China next month with a price but has not yet been defined, it is estimated will be a third of what it costs the Land Rover product. Initially it offered with a turbocharged four-cylinder -block 2.0-liter engine with an output of around 190 horsepower , and shall be associated to an automatic eight-speed transmission .
