New spy shots of the Landwind E32 SUV all-naked in China, still looking like a Range Rover Evoque in blue. Land Wind lettering in the same style as Range Rover lettering finishes a almost perfect copy-paste job. The latest reports indicate the E32 will be called ‘Landwind X7’ when it hits the Chinese car market in Q4.
The Landwind E32 will cost about 120.000 yuan or $19.000. Price for the Range Rover Evoque starts at 528.000 yuan and ends at 668.000 yuan ($84.000 – 107.000).
The E32 will be powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 190hp and 250nm, mated to a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic. The E32 is based on a shortened variant of the platform that also underpins the Landwind X8.
Landwind is a Chinese car maker jointly owned by Jiangling Motors and Changan Auto, coincidentally (0r not?) bot joint venture partners of Ford with Jiangling-Ford and Changan-Ford. Ford owned Land Rover/Range Rover until 2008 when they sold it on to the TATA conglomerate of India.
Same overall design, same wheel arches, same shut line, same vents behind the front-wheel arches, same headlights, same grille, same roof, same mirrors. Same everything really, and similar alloys. Compare with…:
… the real Range Rover Evoque.
Same wing on window, same rear lights, same bumper, same chromed skid pad, same exhaust pipes. Compare with…:
… the real Range Rover Evoque. I mirrored the picture for an easy comparison.
