We all know that MG India will soon make an entry into the Indian car market next year in 2019 with an SUV. Their second offering will also be an SUV, but an all-electric one. Now MG or Morris Garages is part of China's largest automotive group, SAIC. SAIC also owns other companies like Roewe - a very popular passenger car brand in China. Our trip to China included driving four cars from SAIC's global line up : the eMG6, MG HS, Roewe eRX5 and Roewe Marvel X : hit the play button to watch the video. MG India, all the best :)
Here are the top 10 list of Luxurious Chinese Copycat cars 10.

Take one good look at this vehicle, and you will find the similarities. 9. BAIC X424, Copied from Jeep Wrangler 0:57 The Chinese automotive industry quite admires the looks of the global SUVs. And one among them is the Jeep Wrangler. The Chinese made BAIC X424, looks quite similar to the Jeep Wrangler. The whole design is a copy from the Jeep. Only minor details have been changed but overall, the profile and the looks, are similar to that on the Wrangler. 8. Victory S10, Copied from Cadillac Escalade 1:24 The Cadillac Escalade is a massive luxury SUV with its large wheels and musculin looks, this SUV is quite popular in America. And due to its huge popularity, the Chinese have come up with a clone for the Cadillac Escalade as well, called the Victory S10. Which made it to the list of Chinese copycat cars. 7. JAC P241, Copied from Mercedes GL-Class 1:50 The Chinese automaker, JAC, has come up with their SUV model called the P241, which borrows its styling and design from the Mercedes GL Class. They have combined the same headlamps, and similarly styled DRLs on their front bumper. Which made this vehicle, to be listed among Chinese copycat cars. 6. Land Wind X7, Copied from Range Rover Evoque 2:21 In the first glance itself, the Chinese brand, Land Wind X7 will make most peoples suspect that it is Range Rover Evoque. It is only when you look at a few details, that you can tell it apart. The coupe like profile, the headlamp design, as well as the tail lamp design, are very similar to that on the Range Rover Evoque. 5. Brilliance V 5, Copied from BMW X1 2:48 Brilliance Auto Group is the Chinese partner of BMW. When the BMW X1 started the sale in China it was in partnership with Brilliance. So they come with a surprise that the company made their own version, called the Brilliance V5, this model looked very similar to the BMW X1. However, the V5 is a lot cheaper. Maybe, because it's made in china. 4. BYD T6, Copied from Porsche Cayenne 3:19 The first SUV of Porsche was Cayenne. And it was regarded as one of the popular, and sportiest SUVs in the world. Considering this, there have been a few clones for the Cayenne in the Chinese market. And one among them is the BYD T6, which looks exactly the same as the Cayenne from the front. The only noticeable difference is that the BYD badge sat on the grill instead of the Porsche logo on the bonnet. 3. CH Auto Lithia, Copied from Audi R8 3:50 The Lithia is an electric EV concept that was shown at the Beijing Motorshow. The company claims that the car has a range of 150 km. The reason why this car is on the list of Chinese copycat cars, is because of its resemblance to the Audi R8. The side fins and the roof design have been totally copied from the R8. 2. Diablo VT, Copied from Lamborghini Diablo 4:17 There is a company called Diablo in China which produced a car called the VT. It looks identical to the legendary Lamborghini Diablo. The company claimed to be the first supercar builder of China. People who are not that observant can easily mistake, the Diablo VT, as the Diablo of Lamborghini, since the copy has been done very accurately. And the top in the list of, Chinese copycat cars 4:43 is The Geely GE, Copied from the opulent Rolls Royce Phantom Yes, the Chinese do have the clone version of the costliest car in the world. The large grill, the headlamp design and they have even got a copy of the Spirit of Ecstasy. In terms of power, The Rolls Royce gets a massive 6.75 liter V12 Engine, While the Geely makes it with a 3.5 liter V6 Engine. And lot cheaper than the Rolls Royce Phantom. So, these are the list of, Top 10 luxury cars from around the world Which china have the exact copy cat version.

Thinking Tesla? Use our link: http://geni.us/TwoBitTesla Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/twobitdavinci **NOTE** We incorrectly converted lbs to kgs in the costs. So Please go by the price per pound! Lithium = $7.50/lb, Nickel = $4.05 /lb, Manganese = $0.93 /lb, Cobalt = $36.50 / lb Today we are going to talk about “The Truth about Tesla’s Batteries.” If you’re thinking about a Tesla, you’ve undoubtedly heard about how cheap they are to fill up, how little maintenance they require, and with recent Model 3 Production ramp ups, we’re on the verge of absolute Tesla ubiquity. But one of the questions that we believe keep potential buyers up at night, surrounds their battery packs. So we’ve compiled a list of all the questions we’ve received, and we’re going to break it down, step by step in this two part video series. First we’ll look at the raw materials required to create lithium ion batteries. Second we’ll look at the battery cell manufacturing. In part 2, we’ll look at the complete battery pack manufacturing, the final Car manufacturing, and end of life recycling of lithium ion batteries. Different car makers use different cathode chemistries for lithium ion batteries, Tesla uses NCA chemistry, or Nickel, Cobalt, and Aluminium (LiNiCoAlO2). They use this particular chemistry because it offers great energy density, long cycle life, and great charge performance. This makes Tesla’s batteries the absolute top of the line in the EV world. They weigh less, last longer, and power the performance of things like Ludicrous mode. Tesla’s Batteries have gone through 3 stages: Stage 1 was from 2009-2012 found in the Roadster and Model S. Stage 2 was from 2016-2018 and powered the Model S Gen II, and the Model X. Stage 3 starts with the Model 3 in 2018. Stage 1 batteries were constructed with 18650 cells, which are 18 mm wide, and 65 mm tall. They had a NCA formulation that required 11kgs of Cobalt in the cathode, per car. They had a pure graphite anode, with no Silicon. Stage 2 batteries used the same 18650 cells, but reduced the amount of Cobalt required in the cathode from 11 to just 7kg/car. They also introduced a small amount of silicon into their anode. Stage 3 batteries are new for Tesla, and first shipped with the Model 3. Stage 3 batteries have further reduced the amount of cobalt to just around 4.5kg per vehicle. They also have a hybrid silicon/graphite anode, and while proprietary and unreported, probably higher silicon content than their stage 2 batteries. Unlike other companies that are planning to sell tens of thousands of EVs each year, Tesla is planning to sell half a million and then a million EVs each year. It's absolutely crucial to understand supply chain fragility when considering that lithium ion battery production is set to soar. Tesla opened Gigafactory 1 in Sparks Nevada, and though it will only be fully completed by 2020, its pumping out batteries, and will only increase its production rate as it nears completion. Tesla has switched from 18650 cells to 21700 cells because it’s an optimized size to maximize energy, with minimal increases in weight, and excellent cost. Voltage is largely unchanged, since its a function of battery chemistry. So the big question here is, why does Tesla use these little battery cells, when they know they’ll need thousands of them? Why not not make custom big batteries, like the ones found on a BMW i3? The i3 uses prismatic batteries, with big custom packs. The Chevy bolt and Leaf use rectangular pouch batteries, which you might think makes more sense since there’s less wasted space. The i3’s prismatic battery and the Bolts pouch battery have to be specifically made for those cars. They are built to specification, much like your smartphone. Figure out how much space you have left for a battery, then get one custom made. In contrast, the Tesla model 3 uses a new 2170 cell which will be the battery that powers all future tesla models and even their home energy storage solutions. This flexibility is why Tesla can offer a wide variety of range options. By adding more cell blocks in parallel they can increase range without changing the core voltage of the system. Tesla has a goal of producing batteries at less than $100/kWh. The Gigafactory is Tesla’s greatest asset, because by investing so heavily into a vertical integration structure, they can control costs and production levels. In contrast General Motors, completely outsources the battery development to LG Chem, who provide complete units ready to drop into their EVs. But if suddenly Honda and Toyota come with contracts to LG Chem, how would that impact GM? Vertical integration for battery manufacture is super costly, but does give Tesla a marked advantage over their competition. In fact, it might be their single biggest advantage. One question we often get is who’s actually making the battery, Panasonic or Tesla? The answer really is Panasonic.
We CUT OPEN the Tire of a Tesla Model X and it was ACTUALLY INTERESTING! Buying a Tesla? USE OUR CODE: http://ts.la/daniel3063 Was super surprised to learn about the inside of the Tesla tire and grateful I found a Tire Shop that could help me fix this issue. Hopefully this video helps shops that don't know how to fix Tesla flats be confident moving forward. Not everyone can get service done at the Tesla Service station.

This blue wonder is the Roewe Marvel X, a new electric SUV from China, and probably the best looking Chinese car ever. Beautiful lines and details, topped off by a giant shiny grille. The Roewe Marvel X is the EV-version of the upcoming Roewe RX7.
Very nice at the rear as well, especially the ‘air vents’ on each side of the bumper. Marvel X name in the middle of the rear door. Interesting name, bit weird, but why not?
The Marvel X will be powered by two electric motors, one with 116 hp and one with 71 hp. The former engine is fitted over the front axle, the latter over the rear axle. Roewe claims a top speed of 180 km/h. Range is yet unknown.
Size: 4678/1919/1616, and wheelbase is 2800. Curb weight is 1759 kilo.
The Marvel X will have its public debut in April on the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, and it will be launched on the Chinese car market soon after that.
