Ora Ballet Cat opens pre-sale, and the general manager responds to questions

With its retro appearance and clear positioning, ORA Ballet Cat has always been a hot topic model, and ORA has gained a lot of attention by virtue of "a car brand that loves women more".

The Ora Ballet cat is divided into 401km and 500km battery life, a total of 4 models, and the pre-sale price is 193,000-223,000 yuan.

Ballet Cat adopts a large number of designs based on female ergonomics. By analyzing the big data of women's physical characteristics, Euler Ballet Cat has developed a female-only seat to better fit the sitting posture of women and improve wrapping and comfort. The women's-specific steering wheel is also made for women's palm size and shoulder width.

In response to the actual needs of women to maintain a sense of sophistication, Ora Ballet has brought a mobile dressing room. After the main driver's sun visor is opened, there is an oversized flat makeup mirror, which is convenient for makeup repairs at any time.

At the same time, the armrest box in the central control area of ​​Ballet Cat is equipped with a one-button open armrest makeup box, which can be used to store common cosmetics in different areas, which is very convenient to use.

At the press conference tonight, Dong Yudong, general manager of ORA Automobile, said, "Fashion is a kind of reincarnation."

Can you accept the ballet cat look?

Especially the design of the dashboard. Avita 11 adopts a three-screen design. Although they are not connected, there is no sense of separation. The three screens are well integrated into the left, middle and right parts of the instrument panel. The buttons and stitching on the door panels are also very delicate.

The overall design of the Scenic Vision adopts Renault's latest family design style, and with the all-black body color scheme, it has a strong sense of technology.

Open the side door of Scenic Vision and you will find its interior is quite interesting.

In front of the instrument panel, there is an extra-long through-screen screen that can display information such as speed and time, and there are streaming rear-view mirrors on both sides. In addition to this large penetrating screen, the car is also equipped with multiple small square screens for interaction.

In terms of power, the car uses hydrogen fuel as the power source of the internal combustion engine, equipped with a 40kWh battery pack, and a 15kWh hydrogen fuel cell under the floor, which can charge the battery. (new trip)
