Chinese Firm Reveals SUV With Bronco And G-Wagen Styling

Reveal / Comments

It's called the Cyber Tank 300.

Wey is a Chinese marque that we're actually quite fond of. Last year, we heard that this company was planning a fake Ford Bronco, and now it's been revealed at this week's Auto Shanghai. There certainly does appear to be a lot of Bronco influence in the styling, as well as a touch of Mercedes-Benz G-Class, and although this "inspiration" will be a tricky talking point for many, there's more to focus on than just its looks.

The SUV is called the Cyber Tank 300, but despite that futuristic name and loads of interesting LED lighting on the body, this is not likely to be an EV. It is expected to share a drivetrain with Wey's existing Tank 300, and if that proves to be true, then you'll find a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot under the hood with an eight-speed automatic managing shifts. There aren't many more details to reveal at this time, but it seems clear that the Cyber Tank 300 will be more of a street fighter than the Tank 300 (pictured here in orange paint with black moldings).

As a more street-friendly vehicle, the Cyber Tank 300 would be a more luxurious offering. So while the body seems to blend the styling of a G-Wagen and a Bronco, the cabin is far more aligned with the Mercedes off-roader than the Ford one. White leather and loads of chromed trim accents dominate the cabin, but it's the layout of the dash and the design of the vents, switches, and door handles that really highlight how much of a copycat this car is. With such blatant plagiarism, don't expect to see this SUV offered in the States any time soon.
