Chery Tiggo 3X EV Is A New Electric SUV For China

February 17, 2017 by Joey Wang

Another new electric car for China: this is the Chery Tiggo 3X EV, complete with some blue in the headlights and a blue line in the grille. Blue is the color of green cars in China.

The Tiggo 3X EV is based on the Tiggo 3X. It seems as if the suspension of the EV was jacked up a bit, looking weird. First I thought the tires were smaller but they are 205/55R16 on both the 3X EV and the 3X.

Zotye Finally Gets What It Deserves: A Clone Of One Of Its Own

Many people have asked me what on earth can be done about Chinese copycats like Zotye Auto. Nothing can be done really, so I always jokingly reply that somebody should clone Zotye back, to teach them a lesson, to make them feel how it feels to be cloned. Well now; a low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) maker from China’s  Shandong Province didn’t make just a joke, they actually did it: they cloned a Zotye, the E200 EV to be precise, and they called it the Tieke E200.
