Chinese giant Great Wall Motors debuts two European-focused models

Great Wall Motors Wey Coffee 01

Chinese behemoth Great Wall Motors has returned to Europe, showing off two very different models at IAA in Munich – the Ora Cat Concept and Wey Coffee 01

Chinese brand Great Wall Motor (GWM) arrived in Europe with a brace of good-looking motors under its Wey and Ora brands that will be sold, at least to start with, to the German market. 

Of the two models on show at 2021 IAA Mobility show in Munich, the Ora Cat is the most distinctive. A pure EV, it comes accompanied by a bright and breezy press bumpf that is clearly aimed at creative, liberal urbanites who may not see the automotive world as their natural terrain. The concept makes great play of its ‘retro-futurist’ stylings to present a chic city runabout for “trendsetters who want their car to embody eco-conscious flexibility, individuality and comfort.”
