Global interest in electric cars is growing month by month, but the market is still short of affordable models. However, this problem was dealt with by China, and more precisely in the form of China Great Wall Motors, which conquered the local market with the first compact car Ora R1, a representative of the fresh brand.
We are talking about a modest electric city car, which is distinguished by a long warranty period, an impressive range on a single charge and funding from the government and local programs that everyone can count on. We are talking about a three-year warranty (with a maximum route of 120,000 km) and an eight-year warranty (limited to 150,000 km for “basic components”), the ability to cover as much as 312 kilometers and a price that starts from $ 8,680 and ends at $ 11,293. All thanks to the aforementioned funding, which (according to unofficial sources) amounts to around $ 10,000. However, this is justified by the level of air pollution faced by the urban population.
The Ora R1 has already hit the market but was reportedly unveiled earlier at last year’s Beijing Auto Show. Despite its small size, it managed to host four doors and a 35-kilowatt engine, which can boast a power of 47 horsepower and the ability to develop 100 km / h. Power is provided by a battery with a capacity of 35 kWh. The low price is also caused by the elimination of all dealers from the network and its replacement with Ora brand outlets. The R1 model in question is currently only available in China, but the company has expressed its desire to expand into the global market.
