Chinese giant, Great Wall Motors, has introduced a fourth brand to its portfolio with the launch of ORA, its new brand for electric vehicles. Standing for Open Reliable Alternative, ORA is being introduced initially in the Chinese market, with the first of its battery electric vehicles set to hit the road by the end of this year (2018).

ORA’s line-up comprises two model ranges, the R Series and the iQ series, each range promising a high degree of connectivity and level 3 autonomy from launch. The R Series will be introduced with two compact vehicles, the R1 and R2.

The R1 is a micro vehicle ready to slot in to China’s rapacious vehicle market, where tiny trikes and electric bikes are popular options for navigating ‘megacities’ like Beijing. The R2 is a larger four-seat vehicle with the four wheels pushed out to the corners to maximise its wheelbase and present a larger cabin space.
