WM Motors releases renderings based on Mitsubishi photos

An spellbinding gaffe has reared its head as WM Motors has published the first images depicting its new car portfolio. The renders showing Chinese exciting vehicle startup’s future cars come up to have been based on Mitsubishi Outlander compress photos, as discovered by Electrek’s Fred Lambert. It is one factor to show mere renders of future cars – that is certainly largely accepted, as the cars are planned to be launched in 2018 at the earliest – but it’s the unobtrusive that gives away how the renders are based on doctored Mitsubishi shots.

Details are shared between the Outlander and WM Motors’ delineation, with wheels, mirrors and doorhandles at once lifted off the Mitsu; in practice, the comparison shots transform into a pastime of “spot the similarities.” The SUV is said to be designed by a one-time Bentley and Volkswagen designer, Sam Sun, but it is not yet clear whether he meant the end result vehicle to share its decorative rear diffuser panel with a Mitsubishi. It may be these were work images in no way really meant for official publication, as they without strain show the SUV’s dimensions on the road. In addition to Electrek, Google seems to also be on the ploy, as a reverse image search on the VM Motor shots produces Mitsubishi suggestions.

According to Car Advice China, which circulated the images, WM stands for either Weltmeister (mankind champion in German), or weima in Chinese, which means a weighty horse. The company is spearheaded by Freeman Shen, time past of Geely, and the Suzhou factory is planned to compose 50,000 cars per year starting in 2018. There is talk of the cars featuring Huawei connectivity technology, with the ironmongery being produced together with the German companies Bosch and Siemens.
