Chinese Manufacturer Copies the Renault Twizy!

And by copies we actually mean that – were you to stick a diamond badge on the front of this Rayttle E28, you could actually fool some people. The model was created by China’s Zhejiang Litong New Energy Automobile Corporation.

According to CarNewsChina, the model debuted in September and on the manufacturer’s website they say the company is “at the forefront of fashion design” and that the Rayttle E28 has “unique European style.” They did get the European style part right, but we can’t say the same for the use of the word “unique…”

The source says that an E28 costs roughly half what a Twizy goes for, yet promises similar performance and better (!) range.

Behold its magnificence and one-of-a-kind design in the gallery below! We also added a few shots of the Twizy just in case you needed some reference.

    I love China! They’re so shameless.

    This may have “unique European design” and a bigger range than the Twizy, but I get the feeling it’s just a golf cart underneath that original bodywork.

    Hello all Chinese watching this. You Chinese are really shameless. That is the truth everyone around the world shares about you guys.

    One of these Car companies really need to take a stance and stop these ‘copies’ – its getting out of hand! Have they never heard of Intellectual Property?

      Nobody will sue them. Chinese market is much bigger than European so most manufacturers just close their blind eye 🙂 High level of sale in China outweighs discomfort of being copied 🙂

    It felt like Twizy needs a quick facelift.
