Reported on September 14, 2021, Great Wall Motor (GWM) Thailand is reportedly going to launch the Ora Good Cat electric car in October, arriving in the imported CBU form from China.
While Haval is GWM’s SUV sub brand, Ora is GWM’s EV brand. The Good Cat (directly translated from the car’s Chinese name, hao mao) surfaced in late 2020 in its domestic market and was previewed in Thailand in February 2021.
Underpinned by GWM’s modular Lemon platform that the Haval H6 also uses, the Good Cat is a 5-door hatchback that comes with semi-autonomous driving features. No Thai pricing has been announced yet, but as GWM has mentioned plans to make Thailand its regional hub for EVs, there is a possibility that the Good Cat would be locally assembled in the future.
