Clones, copies, and a couple of pretty cool home-brew machines from China’s biggest auto show

But as far as Chinese brands go, things are very much a work in progress. A walk around this year’s Beijing show floor made it clear that old habits die hard – many local brands are still planning on copying-and-pasting their way to success. That said, there were plenty of curious concept cars to wow attendees, not to mention one Chinese brand whose latest car might actually be up to snuff to compete with the best from the West.
