    Report: Chinese automaker looks to patent VW Taigun copy before original goes on sale

    Filed under: China, Government/Legal, Volkswagen, Humor


    China. Just when we thought the People's Republic was finally developing its own unique, interesting design language and was attracting big-name manufacturers to set up design studios, this happens. This is not a Volkswagen Taigun. This is a patent filing from a company known as Jiangsu Lake Motors, and it is a virtual ripoff of the VW that's slated to debut in China around 2016. Yes, a Chinese company is trying to patent someone else's design before it can go on sale.

    The profile is nearly a carbon copy of the stylish new mini-CUV, while there's an incremental degree of originality in the front and rear of the car, with ever so slight styling tweaks. According to IndianAutosBlog, Jiangsu Lake came up with a name as original as the car its patenting: "SUV." This is far, far, far from the first time Chinese designers have blatantly stolen the design of a western vehicle, as IAB points out, but so far as we can recall, it's the first time a Chinese brand has attempted to patent the stolen design. Volkswagen should be lawyering up any minute.Chinese automaker looks to patent VW Taigun copy before original goes on sale originally appeared on Autoblog on Sat, 03 Aug 2013 17:21:00 EST.
