Ora announced earlier this year that it's entering the Singapore market and that it will make its debut here in Q3 with the Good Cat – its compact hatchback EV. Well, that time has now come.
The Good Cat will be launching in Singapore in early August and it will give readers looking to get into EVs another affordable option.
Like many other affordable EVs, Ora hails from China and is part of the Great Wall Motor group. According to the group, Ora stands for "Open, Reliable, and Alternative" and the brand prides itself on its funky designs and names – it names all of its cars cats.
We don't know what will the specs of the Good Cat be here in Singapore but it's typically available either with a 107kW or 128kW motor in other markets. This means the lower-powered version will meet the criteria for a lower-priced Cat A COE here in Singapore. The smallest battery that the Good Cat comes with is a47.8kWh unit that Ora claims is good for a range of around 400km. And the largest battery it comes with is a 63.1kWh unit that's delivers up to 500km of range.
The Good Cat is offered here with a 105kW motor (~140hp) that generates 210nm of torque. The battery capacity is 61kWh, which gives it a claimed range of around 420km.
To make it competitive, it comes with a surprising amount of features for a car at its price point. For example, it has front ventilated seats with massaging function, Intelligent Cruise Control (their version of adaptive cruise control), automatic high-beams, automatic parking, 360° cameras, collision warnings, electric tailgate, and more.
Apart from the Good Cat, Ora also makes the Ballet Cat – a larger, mid-size hatchback – and the Lightning Cat – which, unsurprisingly, is their high-performance EV.
