China launched First Production Electric Car Ora Good Cat

The first commercial copy of the compact "green" car was produced by one of the Great Wall factories in China.

An electric car with an unusual donning ORA Good Cat (Haomao), which finally went into production, was presented at the July Auto Show in Chengdu, China. The manufacturer promises to start selling the battery novelty in October. Closer to this time, the cost of the electric car and modifications available for purchase will be announced. Recall that the Ora brand was created by Great Wall specifically for the production of electric vehicles. Lucid Air electric car will receive the world's best battery

The Good Cat will be driven by a 143-horsepower electric motor, which is connected to a lithium-ion battery. The length of the electric car, which has a stylish appearance and original proportions, reaches 4 235 mm with a wheelbase of 2 650 mm, width and height - 1 825 and 1596 mm, respectively.

In the Ora lineup, the Good Cat electric car is the fourth. He joined the Ora iQ5 liftback and fashionable hatchbacks with the co-named Ora Black Cat and Ora White Cat.

The last two "cats" used to have simpler names - Ora R1 and Ora R2. The brand has recently undergone a rebranding to appeal to a younger audience. This is how the cat family appeared.

Japanese Lexus will introduce competitor SUV Cadillac Escalade

Dealers of the Japanese automaker in the United States unanimously say that it is time for Lexus to introduce a luxurious full-size SUV with 7 or 8 seats. He must compete with the Cadillac Escalade.

Lexus creates some of the most stylish and fashionable cars on the market. The combination of luxury with a fashionable appearance helps the brand remain one of the TOP on the global automotive scene. Of course, prices for the entire range of Japanese automakers have always been at a fairly high level. But this is in all cases a justifiable waste, because thanks to the fact that the parent company Toyota has almost unlimited resources (both financial and mental), Lexus can offer its customers reliability, stylish appearance, a large list of the latest technologies and premium level of comfort.

Many Lexus dealerships in North America believe the Japanese brand lacks a model that competes with huge 7- or 8-seater luxury SUVs such as the Cadillac Escalade.

In a short interview, Paul LaRochelle, chairman of the Lexus National Dealership Advisory Council, said Lexus dealers in the US are looking for major changes to the company's luxury SUV lineup, whether it’s a new model or a significant upgrade, like the aging LX.

“In the current realities of the automotive market, crossovers and SUVs are very popular. Especially often, Americans need exactly huge size luxury SUVs with 7 or 8 seats. So in this regard, the Japanese company loses a little and misses a chance to grab “its piece of cake”.

Larochelle says Toyota President Akio Toyoda has committed to the plan for 2025, according to which at least two or three model line upgrades will be carried out in the next five years, and several new cars will be added to the lineup each year. Can we see in the near future a 7- / 8-seater version of the new generation LX SUV? Time will tell.
