LANDWIND RUFFLES FEATHERS
IT looked very much like a new Range Rover Evoque: same signature wedge body shape, lights, grille and bumpers, but there were subtle differences.
Instead of a chromed Range Rover badge across the bonnet’s nose, it read LandWind.
The smart-looking X7 was one of the stars of last week's Guangzhou motor show, but it didn’t impress Jaguar Land Rover, which has just signed a deal with Chery to produce some of its models in China.
It even looks like an Evoque inside, but some items, such as the steering wheel, aircon vents, instrument cluster and gearlever are dif- ferent. So is the price: TheX7 is less than half the price of an Evoque.
LandWind is a product of Jiangling Motors Holdings.
Jaguar Land Rover, owned by India’s Tata group, has complained and is considering legal action.
Range Rover Evoque? No, it's a LandWind X7.
