YOUXIA ELECTRIC VEHICLE
The name Youxia means “wondering force” in Chinese, commonly referring to Robin Hood-like knights righting the wrongs on common people. Youxia was also the Chinese name for the 1980’s TV series Knight Rider, about a modern day Robin Hood, Michael Knight and his Pontiac Trans Am named Kitt. The CEO, IT entrepreneur and Knight Rider fan of the controversial Shanghai-based Youxia electric vehicle company, 29-year-old Huang Xiuyuan, apparently had a dream in 2014 that lead to the development of the car. When one looks at the car, you would be forgiven to think that Huang might have watched a Tesla Model S ad before he went to bed that night. Many of the features that made the TV series car Kitt memorable can also be seen in the Youxia, for those of you young enough to remember.
The Youxia is an example where one man’s dream can be an investor’s nightmare. The first prototype, the Youxia One, built on a Hyundai Genesis platform allowed Youxia Motors to raise funds to develop its controversial pre-production concept vehicle. The funds were raised through a crowdfunding campaign but were not used as indicated in the prospectus. The company admitted that some of the funds were used to purchase a Tesla Model S. There are many however that is skeptical if the vehicle will reach production.
