Yema Auto Mustang F16 EV cribs from the Audi playbook

Audi hasn't had the best of luck getting their electric vehicles to market, but that hasn't stopped China's Yema Auto from filling the gap by introducing an electrified rip-off of the A4 Avant.

Audi hasn't had the best of luck getting their electric vehicles to market, but that hasn't stopped Yema Auto from filling the gap by introducing an electrified rip-off of the A4 Avant.

Dressed in taxi livery, the Mustang F16 clearly evokes its four-ringed counterpart as it has a virtually identical front fascia which is only distinguished by a revised logo. Unfortunately things get a little ugly further back as there's window vents, tacky side skirts and uninspired wheels. Elsewhere, there's an increased ride height, a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a revised rear fascia.

While the exterior is all Audi, the cabin is heavily influenced by the Subaru Legacy. The dashboard is a dead-ringer for the Subie, but the cheap shifter and over use of metallic trim are definitely Yema's additions.

Little is known about the car's powertrain, but it reportedly features lithium-ion batteries and an electric motor that develops 80 HP (59 kW). This setup could enable the model to hit a top speed of 110 km/h (68 mph) and travel up to 260 km (162 miles) on a single charge.
