The Japanese television manufacturers blindly copied American Zenith Televisions for decades before they started making enough money to invest in Research.
Likewise in the auto industry.

There is nothing stopping China from doing more research once they start making enough money.

I am sure the names Datsun, Suzuki, Toyota sounded very geely as compared to GM & Ford when first made their appearance in the USA.

Looking at the photo's of that car, I think Mercedes hit the nail on the head.

“The difference between a copy and a genuine Mercedes-Benz should be clear to see — it’s not the same as a fake Rolex. Cars are still fairly sophisticated technology.”
Forget technology, the Geely is no match for the Rolls even in photographs!

HAHAHA before even opening this thread, I knew I was going to get a good laugh at it. These Chinese people here have become very good at copying now. I remember those days when I used to go to China where it was so hard to get good copied stuff, they didn't know how to copy anything! And now look where they are! Though the copying has been good for the customers, but not so much for the clothing, film, automobile companies. They're overdoing it now I think.

I like the one seat in the rear. No questions who gets to sit there.

The unique single seat makes it look like a very royal flush toilet.

Just that visual of it makes it look like that.

So for that first time, what we have here is a a Flush toilet on the move.

!!!! :O
It pains me to see the desecration of this haloed brand by these cheap Asian plagiarists. Heritage, pedigree and the like are only rumors to those peasants who'l sell their soul for 10 bucks. Hope BMW sues the pants off these fish mongers.
Can't actually blame them, this "copying" is a universal phenomenon in all spheres. Clothing brands, music, film plots the list goes on. Scavengers who live off someone else's sweat and blood if you ask me.
Its a miracle to see BMW, GM, Honda, and our very own Bajaj who had their Pulsar turn into a "gulsar" haven't sued these "engineers" & "automobile developers" yet.

The Royal flush toilet resemblance is awesome!! You never know may be it will double up as an actual toilet as well!!
And who the hell would want to spent 20L and buy a single seater at the back i wonder! Sure someone with a huge ego.

It should be actually extended as a sofa and used for some hanky panky in the back seat
