Chinese company Yogomo liked so much Kia Picanto compact hatchback of second generation, so that it has developed its own version of the model. But, the car characteristics are not as good as Kia’s. First of all, the Chinese “clone” is equipped with a low-quality electric propulsion system that provides slow movement while driving over short distances.

Chinese five-door hatchback which is an electrified Kia Picanto replica is called Yogomo 330. The model’s appearance can be described by the way of IPhone Chinese copy. First it seems like an original, but when you see it closer, evident errors are obvious: gaps between the different body elements, cheap-looking plastic inside of the car. Concerning the dimensions, it differs too: Yogomo 330 is 145 mm shorter and 95 mm narrower then “Kia”, but what is surprising, the height and size of the wheelbase remained the same: 1480 and 2385 mm, respectively.
