Youxia Ranger X EV
According to the founder of Shanghai-based Youxia the controversial Youxia Ranger X EV was designed and developed by 50 engineers, and one stripped down Tesla Model S in 500 days. The vehicle is expected to cost between $30,000 and $45,000, benefiting from huge subsidies granted by the Chinese Government. Furthermore, the company says it kept cost down by buying off the shelf technologies. The motor management system developed by Youxia Motors branded Youxia OS is based on the Android Version 4.4, making the car fully connected. Over-the-top features include the system being able to provide a race car experience by replicating the engine noise of various expensive race cars. The list includes various Ferrari’s and the Jaguar F-Type. ( I am not sure but aren’t some of these distinctive sounds protected by one or other copyright law?)
Production of the electric car was set to start in 2016 for commercial release in 2017. Interestingly enough very little has been released to the press since the launch in July 2015. Other Chinese clones of the Tesla Model S includes the Aoxin Ibis.
