Nice Wall Motors in China unveiled the Ora Punk Cat, an electrical automobile that bears greater than a passing resemblance to the VW Beetle. I doubt it’s going to make it to the U.S. but when it does I’ll purchase one with out test-driving it or studying the specs. It would go into manufacturing later this yr.
So, ORA took a ’60s-era Volkswagen Beetle, stretched it to accommodate 4 doorways, made it electrical, after which glammed it up, renaming it Punk Cat. Inside, there is a pink on white inside with contrasting inexperienced, and each accessible floor trimmed in gold or pink. The cabin looks like a trippy retro tribute, save for the 2 digital shows, one above the steering wheel and a bigger one sitting in the midst of the dashboard. It even has parquet-like flooring mats, and the way usually do you occur to learn this phrase with a brand new launch these days? The outside is extra retro and fewer trippy, with two-tone inexperienced and white paint, retro wheels and mirrors, and that determined Beetle look that no quantity of flashiness may disguise. Not that ORA appears to have been significantly desirous about hiding the inspiration for this EV.
