A Chinese outlet seems to have stumbled upon some concept patent drawings of what appears to be some sort of BMW concept. But in reality, it looks more like a BMW i3 and a Toyota Mirai mated and produced this. But then again, this makes sense since BMW and Toyota are currently collaborating on technology.

The media outlet that discovered the drawings, PCAuto.com.cn, reports these are official patent designs from a BMW trademarked filed with the Chinese government–though given how Chinese companies like to knock off others without avail, it’s kind of hard to believe.

The report also suggests these patents are for a new fuel-cell vehicle, though fuel caps are visible on both sides of the car, suggesting this is instead a plug-in hybrid. While the drawings may not dawn an actual Roundel on them, the kidney grille is still unmistakable. And ultimately, it’s still rather hideous.
