The Chinese group Great Wall Motors is taking advantage of the Paris Motor Show (from October 17 to 23) to present the Ora Funky Cat to the public before its official marketing. This compact will come to walk on the flowerbeds of the Renault Mégane and Volkswagen ID.3, with a crisp neo-retro look.
With 4.23 m long by 1.82 m wide and 1.60 m high, the Ora Funky Cat has a contained size. The habitability is not left out either, since Ora announces a trunk volume of 228 to 858 liters.

Some animations on the stand
On the Mondial stand, Ora has planned several events to show that the young brand is young and fun. There is thus a small petanque court and a white Ora Funky Cat serving as a painting for a graffiti artist. As we passed by, it gradually transformed into a “work of art” with a few messages like “Hello World, salut Paris”. A GT variant is also on display, with an opaque gray color complemented by a few touches of red and plastic inserts imitating carbon.
