Monday we brought you the story of the new Youxia X electric super sedan, powered by a 348hp electric motor and with a range of 460 kilometer. The story went wild all over the world and predictably many a man say the X is a clone and ‘ripoff’ of the Tesla Model S.
But the Youxia X? Yes and no, it seems. New information surfaced since the unveiling reveals that Youxia Motors fooled its investors like they fooled the media, that they bought a Tesla Model S that they might or might not have modified for the X, and that they are using at least some of Tesla’s open patents.
