As its electric vehicle (EV) brand Ora's Good Cat model becomes available in Thailand, Chinese automotive giant Great Wall Motor has set up its first supercharger station in the Southeast Asian country.
The supercharger station was inaugurated on November 3 at Siam Square in Bangkok, and is Great Wall Motor's first station in the world to feature photovoltaic power generation, energy storage and charging, according to the company.
The supercharger station is open 24 hours a day, has six charging bays and offers DC fast charging.
This means that the company already has a full system in Thailand, from NEV manufacturing, sales and service to charging infrastructure.
Great Wall Motor is committed to becoming a leader in Thailand's NEV industry, and the launch of the supercharging station is just the beginning of a new phase where the company will also expand its charging network and offer the best NEV products in the future, it said.
The company also announced its energy replenishment brand G-Charge, which will offer solutions including supercharging, partner store charging services, destination charging stations and home charging piles.
On February 9, 2021, Great Wall Motor launched its GWM brand to Thailand and plans to introduce nine models to Thailand over the next three years with a focus on electric vehicles.
On June 9, Great Wall Motor started production at its plant in Thailand, the company's second overseas plant. On June 15, the Haval H6 HEV went on pre-order for Thai consumers and was officially launched on June 28.
The Good Cat model of its electric vehicle brand Ora was officially launched in Thailand on October 29, marking the model's debut in overseas markets.
The Ora Good Cat is available in Thailand in TECH, PRO and ULTRA versions, with NEDC ranges of 400 km, 400 km and 500 km respectively, and starting prices of 989,000 baht ($29,700), 1,059,000 baht and 1,199,000 baht respectively.
The prices are higher than the Ora Good Cat's selling price of RMB 103,900 ($16,200) - 160,900 in China.
The model is an all-electric compact car with a length, width and height of 4,235/1,825/1,596 mm and a wheelbase of 2,650mm.
Great Wall Motor says the Ora Good Cat's fast-charging feature gives it a 100 km range in 12 minutes and a 30-minute charge time from 30 percent to 80 percent.
