Okay, some news to dispel those Monday blues. The China copycats are at it again, this time unashamedly producing two shrunken-down, pure-electric SUVs that look an awful lot like the Range Rover Evoque and Mercedes-Benz GLE.

The company behind this ghastly episode of imitation is Shandong Fengde, and it even dared put the clone right next to an actual Mercedes-Benz GLE. There’s no denying the similarities – it’s nearly a carbon copy of the German SUV (right from the badge to the exhaust!), albeit sporting an odd, tall-boxed exterior design.

Based on the pictures by Carscoops, the EV gets a sunroof, roof rails, grossly undersized wheels, halogen headlights and at least two types of grilles, clearly inspired by the tri-star’s twin-louvred grille and AMG diamond grille with chrome pins. Inside, the GLE clone depressingly desolate, featuring a plastic three-spoke steering wheel, digital instrument cluster, touchscreen infotainment system and climate control.

Next up, the Evoque clone. Again, this model suffers from the same shortcomings as the GLE copy, with a huge, tall body riding on small wheels. Inside, well, it’s almost identical to the GLE clone, with heavy use of grey plastics. If kids ran a car company, this is exactly what the cars will look like.

In terms of size, the Evoque clone is about 3,450 mm long, 1,550 mm wide and 1,630 mm tall. Propulsion comes from a small 73 volt, 4,000 watt electric motor that takes between six to eight hours for a full charge. It’s capable of a 50 km/h top speed, which is the norm for Low Speed Electric Vehicles (LSEV) in China, and has a cruising range of up to 120 km. The GLE clone also shares the exact same platform and power unit.

Lastly, pricing. According to the company’s official website, prices start from US$3,900 (RM15,500). If these SUVs don’t do the trick, Shandong Fengde also offers badly copied versions of the Bugatti Chiron, Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi R8 too. Now, over to you, dear readers. What do you think of this?
