348hp Youxia X Electric Super Car looks too much like a Tesla for comfort


youxia x

News of a new start-up now, but this company is producing a new electric super car in China and hopes to take on the Model S with their Tesla inspired Youxia X.

Youxia Motors are a new electric car company from China who want to produce luxury sports sedans. The concept is similar to Tesla’s Model S (which seems to be selling well in China) and features a 348hp electric motor with a range of around 360km.

The X is a striking vehicle but it does look an awful lot like the Tesla Model S and there are even reports that the first concept car (the car which was used to attract investors) is nothing more than a highly modified Tesla car. Apparently Youxia are keeping quiet about the similarities, but the wheelbase, roofline and aspects of the interior do look rather familiar.

Where the Youxia get’s my vote though is with the Knight Ryder inspired red light on the front. In fact the car even comes with an OS named KITT OS! Its not clear if the X can talk to you in a condescending British accent though.

    Yo it lacks David Haselhoff – No Hoff No Buy , but to be honest KITT OS sounds tempting

      Looks really cool, would love to see them build it. But I agree needs the Hoff to make it legit

        I’m pretty sure they can clone a Chinese Hoff too.

    Since when is this a site for cars? I suggest to do it like techpowerup and create another site for this (like, I dunno, autochina or something) while promoting it on your more popular site (here).

      Nothing wrong with a bit of different stuff some times… Especially for those of us that like cars!

        Yes, exactly, for people like you who like cars. But for people like me who go here for phones as it has always been, they’re (yes ‘they’, notice that there are a whole list of this kind of ‘news’, not just ‘some times’) nothing but annoyance.

        You can disagree with me, but many site realize that trying to force their readers something that doesn’t interest them or WAY off the specialization of the site will only result in driving them away. That’s why you see a lot of specialized sites.

        I guess it’s up for the owner of this site how to run his website, just don’t get freaked out if the readers also choose for themselves.

            Wow, nowadays, anyone who has dissenting opinion on the internet are either trolling or has a bad mood. Everyone must be a part of hive mind. 🙂

    Oh my Knight Rider is finally back to life. Hmm … Where is Michael Knight? Need him to come for the launching of this car.

    This is one car I’d more than love to own.
    Yo Andi, can you please notify us when it finally goes on sale and for how much? Would love to buy this car really.

    Old news. Guess people here don’t usually read auto news.
