GWM Ora Cat One

In China, the car manufacturer ORA is known as a small -scale electric car brand of Great Wall as a colorful dog. In Europe, the manufacturer, which is only too happy to rely on electric cars in retro design, knows no one. That should change in Munich after IAA 2021.

Great Wall Motors comes to Europe and shows at the start with his two brands GWM Ora and Wey, where the journey should go. While GWN ORA is to be positioned as an electric car and compact car brand, Wey knocks on the premium gates of the German manufacturers. “With GWM ORA we are building a completely new lifestyle brand in Europe. We address a fashion and lifestyle-oriented target group and integrate the brand into the culture of a progressive urban generation, ”explains Rebecca Grajecki, Brand and Marketing Director Europe for Wey and GWM ORA.These round googly eyes of the Ora Cat should particularly like the women’s world. This also applies to the price, because the 4.24 meter long electric vehicle from China is said to be just 30 in its basic variant.000 euros and will also be offered in Europe from next year. A motor on the front axle with 126 kW / 171 hp / 250 nm maximum torque ensures that the 1.5 ton electric model is tuned. Thanks to the 63 kWh battery, the ORA CAT One offers an accurate range of 400 kilometers. From a standing start, at least 50 km / h in 3.8 seconds and in 8.3 seconds to 100 km / h in. The regulated maximum speed is 160 km/h. Technically, the compact model with the dimensions of a VW Golf on the Great Wall platform Lemon is on the road.

The retrocharm from the face can only be found to a limited extent at the rear of the Chinese. Here, the highly seated LED rear lights, which run from one side to the next below the window line, are primarily noticeable. However, the loading and unloading of the cargo area is not a pleasure with the high loading edge. It looks more pleasant inside, because the ORA Cat has a stately space in this class and two digital large screens. The settings of the respective driver does not do a key or a chip card, but a facial detection that sets radio stations, air conditioning or sitting position depending on the driver. There are "over the air" updates-also thanks to 5G radio technology. The GWM ORA Cat can be pre -ordered from the end of the year. The deliveries should start in the second quarter of 2022.

  1. Ah ok,
    If a new VW Golf from Wolfsburg costs 30k this is overpriced. If the China electronics bowl in the base costs 30k it is one "just". It is actually still possible? No one in Europe is waiting for a new one "Premium"-Car brand made in China.
