Landwind X7 will launch on the Chinese car market in August

With all the excitement about the Zotye T700 Porsche Macan clone you might be forgiven to forget about the Landwind X7 Range Rover Evoque Clone. But we did not.

And bang here is the news: the Landwind X7 has been delayed by two months to August. It was originally scheduled for June, but the X7 did not appear. The exact launch date will be announced later. Price for the Landwind X7 will range from 135.000 to 150.000 yuan ($21.740 – 24.164).

Very hip in lime green, but still very Evoque. The real Evoque is manufactured in China as well, by the Chery-JLR joint venture. It was launched on the Chinese market in February, priced from 448.000 yuan to 582.800 yuan ($71.600 – 93.017).

Dash partly Evoque clone and partly nicer. Screen is much bigger than in the Evoque, and the seats are much more luxurious. Brown leather, how British is that! Wood is fake but looks nice nevertheless. Start button next to central air vents, just like in the Evoque.

Enough space for three, but door design is a mess.

Landwind is a Chinese car maker jointly owned by Jiangling Motors and Changan Auto, coincidentally (or not?) both joint venture partners of Ford, with Jiangling-Ford and Changan-Ford respectively. Ford owned Land Rover-Range Rover until 2008 when they sold it on to the TATA conglomerate of India.

Add some fake Range Rover badges and nobody will see any difference.

The X7 is powered by a Mitsubishi-sourced 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 190hp and 250nm, mated to a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic.
