Default 2020 Nio EC6

It seems like it's impossible to release an SUV without a coupe version.


This is the ES6, but with a coupe roofline.

Lexus side sculpting & Wheel arches, GLC Coupe roof, Urus front. Again, I'm waiting until CHina comes up with a truly original & attarctive looking design;

This is a bit of a reach. I truly suspect if this car wasn’t Chinese, you wouldn’t have said anything like that. Europe and Japan don’t have a monopoly on what is “good design”, especially since they all inspire each other, and they all likely pull kids from the same design colleges.


Also. I’ve have yet to see a Lexus look this cleanly styled.

Well, I would say it without knowing the brand, as the inspriration is rather clear.

And yes, I still have to see the original, and good looking, CHinese design. That is not just fololowing a trend (in teh best case), or simply inspired, or worse, ratehr copied (this owuld fall inbetween the frist and second category for me); It doens#t mean it'S ugly as such, but tehre isn#t a single element where a designer actually put work into it....

I don't think the inspiration is "clear" at all. I think saying it looks even remotely like a MB GLC Coupe, or an Urus, or a Lexus anything.

I think saying a multi-billion dollar company, full of engineers, designers, etc just "put in no work", especially since the designs they're supposedly inspired of aren't exactly unique themselves, is *silly*.


I think there's a lot of interesting detail work inside and out; even if it is just an ES6 with a coupe-like roofline.
