It is believed that the driver of the Landwind X7 was at fault and hence, would have to bear the repair costs of both the vehicles, according to the police officials. Luckily, it was only the two vehicles that suffered some minor damages and not its occupants.

Evoque vs Landwind

The Landwind X7 came in news after the Indian owned British marquee filed an copyright infringement case against the Chinese automobile manufacturer. Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) had filed a case in the Beijing court on an earlier occasion as well but the court declared both the company’s (JLR and Jiangling) patents as invalid.
