MISC | Chinese licensed or copied rolling-stock products

Is this a legal copy of the ForCity by Skoka or has it been 'reverse engineered'?

China

In 2013 Škoda has singed an agreement with Chinese CSR Sifang to produce Škoda 15Ts for the Chinese market under licence. The 10-year agreement could cover up to 400 trams.[12] The first prototype was produced in 2014.[13]

CHINA: A prototype 15T ForCity tram made by CSR Qingdao Sifang for the Chinese market under licence from Škoda Transportation, has started demonstration runs for potential customers in China.

The trams are being manufactured under a 10-year technology transfer agreement announced on June 3 2013 that will allow the Chinese manufacturer to produce up to 400 trams, taking the value of the contract to KC5bn. Škoda has trained 150 Chinese staff as part of this agreement.

The 50·6 m long, five-section 100% low-floor tram is based on the Škoda 14T model. It is equipped with permanent-magnet motors and has a maximum speed of 70 km/h.

A lot of people fail to realize Western manufacturers set up JV's with Chinese companies to produce locomotives for the Chinese market. Win-win for both sides.

Changchun Railway Vehicles Company Ltd. (CRV) built the trains for the Chongqing Monorail based on a design licensed from Hitachi.



CRV also has a joint venture with Bombardier to build metro cars.

Usually it's a case of setting up a joint venture, building a few sets, transferring technology. Then tweak the technology ever so slightly, claim it's a domestic product and export to the world at significantly cheaper prices.

Looks like the image file is corrupted and ghosting.
