China’s motor industry has had few hang-ups about designing cars that look a hell of a lot like someone else’s cars. While the industry has moved away from that a lot, and has been developing its own distinctive design languages for years, you still sometimes see some comically derivative designs pop up. In this case, it’s one of the most iconic, well-known designs in all of motoring: the Volkswagen Beetle. Great Wall seems to have decided not to wait for VW — it’ll just go ahead and build an EV Beetle of its own.
