Take a closer look at the right-hand drive version of the Great Wall Motor Ora Good Cat, an example of which was seen on Vision Motorsports yesterday, using a DC charger. There are currently a few RHD units at Shah Alam’s Glenmari Go Auto headquarters and we have been able to occupy a gallery of the car.
We’ve seen Good Cat before, but in left-handed form – the appraiser was previewed at the Bumiputera Development Action 2030 event in December 2021, and before that, in April, Almina was caught running with a trade plate on a nearby street.
Advance units are in Thailand, where the car has been on sale since November last year According to Datuk SM Ajli Nasimuddin, executive director of Go Auto, the all-electric car has not yet been launched in Malaysia, but is expected to make an official debut next month.
He said that three variants of Good Cat for sale in Thailand (Tech, Pro, Ultra) will make their way here – the units of the photos are the Ultra version. He added that although the price has not been finalized, indicative pricing can be determined from what is expected from car prices in Thailand and that the Great Wall is hoping to get as much local price as possible.
In March, the price of Ora Good Cat was revised in Thailand for EV Incentive. The base tech variant is now priced at 828,500 baht (RM105,350), lower than the original 989,000 baht (RM125,700) sale price. The Mid-Range Pro is now 898,500 baht (RM114,250), 15.1% cheaper than before, when it was 1.059 million baht (RM134,600).
For the range-topping Ultra, it is now priced at 1.0385 million baht (RM132,000) less than 1.199 million baht (RM152,400), so we can see very well that they are becoming the best cat cheapest. The EV is going to be sold here.
Both the Tech and Pro offer a 400km (NEDC standard) range from a 47.8-kilowatt lithium-iron phosphate battery. Rated 143 PS (141 hp or 105 kW) and 210 Nm of torque give a front electric motor a top speed of 152 km / h. The Ultra variant has a 63.1 kWh battery, which extends the operating range up to 500 km (again, NEDC cycles), holding the same 143 PS / 210 Nm electric motor.
All variants support AC charging up to 6.6 kW via Type 2 connection. There is DC fast charging up to 60 kW using a CCS2 connection, where it takes about 45 minutes for the 400 km variant and about one hour for the Ultra to get from 0-80% charge state (SoC).
Ajli said the company is moving the car around to test public DC chargers and has not had any problems charging them yet. He added that all the Good Cat units sold here would be supplied with a home charger. They have a lot more to say about Good Cat when it makes its expected debut next month.
