What will mobility be like in the coming years? The IAA MOBILITY event provided us with a lot of inspiration. One of the models presented especially impressed us, the Ora Cat of Great Wall Motor (GWM) Well, because it represents a lifestyle that celebrates design, fashion and urban culture. Introducing the newly arrived sustainable vehicle.
GWM Ora is a brand that focuses on the needs of its customers. “Today, smart mobility focused on customer needs is one of the standard requirements. In fact, the product has to answer the two big questions: what is its added value and how can it enrich the lives of our customers? ”, Explains Rebecca Grajecki, Brand & Marketing Director of Ora at GWM Europe. GWM Ora’s answer is that it is about an ecosystem of apps, services and style no way beyond the car itself in itself. Thanks to its network technology, the car becomes our personal assistant and becomes an indispensable part of our lives, as well as being elegant!
Totally electric and with a retro-futuristic look
With that look, the Ora Cat could well be the star of fashion shows from Gucci, Channel or other great designers, because its retro-futuristic style meets a more classic spirit. Its distinctive retro headlights are reminiscent of the funniest car aesthetics of the 1960s, while the dynamic, continuous-strip taillights give it a futuristic look. This style also carries over to the interior, where the high-quality vegan upholstery contrasts with the floating central double screen 20.5 “(approx. 52 cm), the heart of the 4G entertainment system which at the same time is also the connection between the car and the driver.
GWM Ora, the pleasure of personalized driving
As soon as we get into the vehicle, the Ora Cat knows who we are through facial recognition and adjusts the seats, radio and navigation to our needs. In addition, all functions can also be controlled by voice control or from the app. In the application we can also easily organize daily tasks. Pray Cat has been developed by and for digital natives, which means that thanks to its characteristics and its design, this car becomes part of our lifestyle, since it can do much more than take us from one place to another.
That’s why driving with the GWM Ora Cat is also funny: the electric motor has a power of 126 kW and 250 Nm of maximum torque. Bottom line: we can accelerate from 0 to 50 km / h in 3.8 seconds. Depending on the battery model, it has a range of up to 400 km.
