In case any of you was wondering how a BMW van would look like, China has an answer. This comes from Brilliance, one of the local carmakers, which also happens to be engaged in a joint-venture with BMW.
The JV is probably were Brilliance designers got their inspiration from when creating the four-wheeled contraption form the adjacent images. The Jinbei Haixing (Sea Star in Chinese) X30 minivan, on its full name, seem to be trying real hard to become a BMW X6, at least as far as the front fascia is concerned.

This shining star borrows BMW’s kidney grilles, as well as some styling cues from the BMW X6 front apron. Moving to the rear end means switching to something a bit more conservatory - a copy of the BMW 7-Series design. you’ll notice this on the taillights, as well as on the chrome bar that separates them.

AS if this wasn’t enough, Brilliance has a whole range of X light commercial vehicles that steals BMW’s styling moves. This includes the Haixing X7, Haixing X9 and the T20 pick-up, which you can see in the gallery below.
