ORA to launch official sales of Grand Cat in Thailand in November 2023
ORA Grand Cat has previously made an appearance at the Motor Expo 2022 in Thailand, but this year, it is preparing for an official launch, allowing everyone to experience it firsthand.
The design of the ORA Grand Cat, also known as Lightning Cat, bears a striking resemblance to the Porsche 911, Porsche Panamera, and Volkswagen Beetle, giving this sleek kitty an air of luxury and sophistication, making it exude an expensive and elegant vibe.
The chassis size of the ORA Grand Cat is also closely aligned with the D-segment, measuring 4,871 mm in length, 1,862 mm in width, 1,500 mm in height, and with a wheelbase of 2,870 mm. This puts it in close proximity to upcoming models like the BYD Seal and Deepal SL03. Alternatively, when compared to Japanese D-segment sedans, the Grand Cat’s dimensions are similar to the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.
The overall design of the ORA Grand Cat is sporty, sleek, and luxurious, featuring a sedan-coupe style with a sloping rear end. It comes with frameless glass on all four doors and a large glass roof that extends across the entire rear of the car. Additionally, it boasts an Active Air Inlet Grille at the front, an electric rear spoiler, and synthesised exhaust sounds, adding excitement and thrill to the electric driving experience.
The interior of the passenger cabin is as luxurious as the exterior, featuring a large 12.3-inch touchscreen, an Infinity sound system with 11 speakers, and the intelligent navigation system ORA Pilot 3.0. The navigation system operates through sensors positioned around the car, with 28 points and 12 ultrasonic radars.
In the powertrain department, the options available include a single-motor front-wheel-drive version and a dual-motor all-wheel-drive version.
- The Standard Range model comes with a single electric motor, producing 204 horsepower and a maximum torque of 340 Nm. It is equipped with a 63.9 kWh Lithium-ion Phosphate (LFP) battery, powering the front wheels and providing a range of up to 450 kilometres according to WLTP standards.
- The Long Range model is equipped with a single electric motor, delivering 204 horsepower and a maximum torque of 340 Nm. It features an 83.5 kWh Lithium-ion Phosphate (LFP) battery, powering the front wheels and providing an extended range of up to 600 kilometres according to WLTP standards.
- The Performance model features dual electric motors, generating a combined output of 408 horsepower and a maximum torque of 680 Nm. It is equipped with an 83.5 kWh Lithium-ion Phosphate (LFP) battery, providing power to all four wheels. With an acceleration rate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, a top speed of 170 km/h, and a range of up to 495 kilometres according to WLTP standards, it delivers a high-performance driving experience.
The ORA Grand Cat is GMW's 100% electric car, marking the third model from the company in Thailand and the ninth model under the Mission 9 in 3 plan, which aims to introduce 9 models within 3 years. This achievement aligns with their plan since entering the Thai market, showcasing successful execution.
The anticipated selling price for the ORA Grand Cat is expected to range from 940,000 to 1.34 million Baht. More information may be disclosed once again at Motor Expo 2023, and if there are any updates, Motorist will promptly notify you.
