Great Wall’s Ora brand of all electric cars sold 6.001 an increase of 63.3% over last year. Production of the Ora Good Cat (Ora 03) commenced on January 12 at Great Wall’s Rayong New Energy production plant in Thailand. Great Wall claims to be the first auto brand in Thailand able to manufacture hybrid, PHEV and fully electric cars.

Sales in China are usually weak in the first quarter with the second half of the year being the best. Going in to 2024 Great Wall seems to have good momentum and should be able to achieve sales in the region of 1.5-2.0 million units. With a string of new product launches such as the Tank 300 Hi4-T and new models from Ora the company should be able to maintain the momentum. The increasing figures for new energy vehicles, an area Geat Wall has struggled with, are particularly welcome.
