With that in mind, meet the K-One – a crossover that has a front end very similar to some modern Mercedes-Benz cars. Due to its compact size, we’ll just call it a GLA clone.
According to AutoHome, the K-One is 4,100mm (161.4in) long, 1,710mm (67in) wide and 1,595mm (63in) tall, with a 2,520mm (99in) wheelbase.
This means that it’s a bit smaller than the real Mercedes-Benz GLA, although it weighs about the same at 1,400kg (3,086lbs).
Despite having what appear to be fake exhaust pipes, this Chinese vehicle is said to be fully electric. Local media reports that it uses an electric motor for propulsion, which makes 130PS (128hp), backed up by a lithium-ion battery pack that’s produced by Harbin Coslight Power, a company founded in 1998. It’s allegedly capable of reaching a top speed of 102km/h (63mph).
No details about its range have been announced at this point, but let’s just say that it’s unlikely that it would pose a threat to the Tesla Model X or Jaguar I-Pace.
It would have been interesting to catch a glimpse of the interior, and also to know how much it will cost in China once it goes on sale, but we will likely learn more about it in the near future, so watch this space for possible updates.
