Owned by Chinese giant Great Wall Motor, ORA has just launched the marketing of a small electric SUV whose lines are not unlike those of the Porsche Macan. Available in two battery configurations, the Haomao costs just over € 13,000 in its basic version.
The fourth electric car marketed by ORA, a dedicated electric brand founded by Great Wall Motor, the small ORA Haomao has just started marketing in China where deliveries will begin in the next few weeks.
If the visuals presented by the manufacturer are more akin to a city car, the new electric car from ORA is more in the category of urban SUV. At 4235 mm in length, 1825 mm in width and 1596 mm in height, the Haomao is close to the size of a Peugeot e-2008.
Aesthetically, the round headlights and shape are reminiscent of Volkswagen’s famous Beetle. Some Chinese media even compare it to a mini Porsche Macan. This is probably not a coincidence since it was Emanuel Derta, a former designer at the Stuttgart firm, who was responsible for the exterior lines.
Two levels of autonomy
Built from Great Wall Motor’s LEMON electric platform, the small electric Ora is powered by an electric motor developing up to 105 kW of power (143 hp) and 210 Nm of torque. On the battery side, two configurations are available: in 47.8 kWh, the first generously promises 400 km of autonomy in the NEDC cycle while the second, in 59.1 kWh, can travel up to 500 km.
Available in five trim levels, the ORA Hoamao starts from 103,900 yuan in its base configuration, or around € 13,200. In its highest finish, the model starts at 143,900 yuan, the equivalent of around € 18,300.
