The Great Wall Motors Ora Good Cat is expected to go on sale in Malaysia next month, although there’s been no indication how much it will cost. Based on our previous report, the variant line-up will be identical to what is offered in Thailand, with three options (Tech, Pro and Ultra) set to be offered to customers through local distributor Go Auto.

The company said at the time that it is hoping to get local pricing as close to Thailand’s as possible, with the base Tech over there currently priced at 828,500 baht (RM106,246), the mid-range Pro at 898,500 baht (RM115,208) and the range-topping Ultra at 1.0385 million baht (RM133,148).

While we wait for official pricing, the Good Cat has now been listed on the Flux car subscription service, with a sole Ultra variant currently available for pre-booking at a fee of RM3,500 a month.

By using this figure and doing some extrapolation work, we can come up with a rough estimate of how much the Good Cat might go for when it is launched.

Assuming Flux’s pricing scales with OTR figures, comparing the Good Cat Ultra’s monthly fee to other EVs such as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 Lite (RM4,200/month on Flux, RM199,888 retail) and Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric P8 (RM5,200/month on Flux, RM262,460 retail) would place the Good Cat Ultra at around RM165k to RM175k.

If Go Auto succeeds in getting the Good Cat’s pricing to closely match that in Thailand, the model could very well be the cheapest EV in Malaysia. In our neighbouring market, the base Good Cat is 20% cheaper than the top Ultra variant, so we may be looking at the Tech priced as low as RM132k!

Currently, the Kona Electric e-Plus is the most affordable EV you can buy now at RM149,888, so the Good Cat, at least the lower-range Tech (or Pro) would need to retail at below this figure to take the title.

As a brief recap, the Tech and Pro variants offer a range of 400 km (NEDC standard) from a 47.8-kWh lithium-iron phosphate battery that powers a front electric motor rated at 143 PS (141 hp or 105 kW) and 210 Nm of torque. The Ultra gets a larger 63.1-kWh battery for 500 km of range, while keeping the same electric motor.

Again, the Good Cat is expected to launch next month, so time to play the guessing game: how much do you expect each variant of the Good Cat to go for? Share your estimates in the comments below and let us know if you’re looking forward to the EV.
