THE VW Beetle Turns Chinese | ORA Punk Cat Car Electric

THE VW Beetle Turns Chinese | ORA Punk Cat Car Electric

August 23, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

Volkswagen’s Beetle Has been reborn as a four-door Electric car in China under the name : PUNK CAT

The Ora Punk Cat is an electric vehicle designed to look like a vintage Volkswagen Beetle. Unless VW intervenes, the car will be available to Chinese consumers before the end of the year.

It looks that if Volkswagen does not want to manufacture an electric Beetle, someone else will. Great Wall Motors presented the Ora Punk Cat, a four-door electric car that bears a remarkable similarity to the VW Beetle, with its round headlights and distinctive hood that takes up about a third of the vehicle, at this week’s Shanghai Auto Show.

In 2019, Volkswagen ended production of the Beetle. The German carmaker aims to release an electric van based on the original VW Bus in 2024, but there are no plans to bring the famous bug back. Perhaps the Ora Punk Cat will persuade it to rethink, particularly if it succeeds in China.


Ora is a Great Wall electric sub-brand that specialises in tiny battery-powered cars. The Ora iQ, the company’s first vehicle, was released in 2018 as a compact crossover with a 46.57 kWh battery and a range of 250 miles on a single charge.

Great Wall hasn’t revealed any details on the Punk Cat, but it will be available before the end of the year, according to the company. Volkswagen, predictably, has sent a statement to Carscoops stating that it is aware of the Punk Cat and is considering legal action.

“We are investigating this situation for any potential infringement of Volkswagen AG utility model or design rights, and we retain the right to take any required legal action,” a spokesman stated.

Ora’s take on the Beetle is actually very great. And many automobiles from other manufacturers have a striking resemblance that no one notices. Someone else should be permitted to build a new electric Beetle if VW does not wish to. When it comes to industries that are crucial to China’s economy, such as electric cars, Chinese policymakers have a history of ignoring foreign IP conflicts. The government’s significant subsidies to assist firms reach mass manufacturing and make China a global leader in green energy have fueled low pricing for electric automobiles there.


The number of vehicles imported by automakers has increased by 83%

The number of vehicles imported by automakers has increased by 83%

According to the study, auto-industry imports totaled $2.624 billion in the first eleven months of FY 2020-21, compared to $1.431 billion in the first eleven months of FY 2019-20.

The value of CKD/SKD car imports in this year was $2.180 billion, up 86.72 percent from the previous year. CBU imports grew by 81.29 percent, with a value of $336.941 million compared to $185.861 million previous year.



According to industry observers, the recent flood of new cars may have caused such a huge spike in the value and volume of vehicle imports. In the previous year, almost two dozen new cars were released to the Pakistani market, the majority of which are SUVs, but virtually all of them cost more than PKR. 4 million.

The government is turning its attention to encouraging the sale and purchase of smaller, more environmentally friendly automobiles in order to decrease the high import bill.

The All Pakistan Motor Dealers Association (APMDA), on the other hand, is advocating for a change of the import rules to encourage car imports. H.M. Shehzad, the Chairman of the APMDA, wrote to the Ministry of Finance (MOF) around two weeks ago to suggest modifications to the new car policy that would take effect after the presentation of the 2021-22 budget.

He went on to say that the newcomers are also raising costs, delaying car deliveries, and “fleecing the consumers in the form of Own-Money” for early deliveries of their automobiles.

Shehzad proposed that the government encourage the import of automobiles into Pakistan to promote healthy competition in the market and to raise the quality standards of current automakers.
