Meet the VW Beetle rip-off with electric powertrain

Snapshot: Showcased at the ongoing Shandong EV Expo in China, the Beetle twin, as opposite to the original Beetle, is a four-door car and not a two-door car.

China has a knack of building cars that look identical to various vehicles manufactured across the globe, be it the Rolls Royce twin or the Land Rover twin. And going by the reputation, they have done it yet again in the form of a VW Beetle copy. Manufactured by Chinese low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) manufacturer VIDOEV, the yet unnamed car is an exact copy of a Volkswagen Beetle.

Showcased at the ongoing Shandong EV Expo in China, the Beetle twin, as opposite to the original Beetle, is a four-door car and not a two-door car. Also, since it was revealed at the EV Expo, the car is a proper electric vehicle, yet it comes with exhaust tips, which is out of our understanding. To add the cherry on the top, the logo of the company is a copy of Nissan logo.

The good part is that, the company is itself calling the yet unnamed LSEV as the "Beetle-style car" which will actually go into production early next year. Not only do the exteriors are inspired from the Beetle with some minor changes, the interior cabin also draws inspiration from the Beetle, though it hasn't been finalized yet. The lead-acid batteries will power the car and will be installed underneath the rear seats.

And how much this electric Beetle will set you back with? Only $16000 if VIDOEV representatives are to be believed. Not a bad price for an electric car we would say!
