Thoughts About Great Wall Motors Making An Entry In To The India Markets
Chinese automotive brands have understood that the Indian automotive markets markets have immense potential. China owned MG Motor has tasted a lot of success in the country, and other big players want a piece of the action.
Also, if Great Wall Motors is able to price the ORA R1 between Rs 6.0 lakh and Rs 9.0 lakh in India, the Chinese made all-electric car will do very well. Pricing is a big factor that keeps people away from electric vehicles at the moment, and the ORA R1 could be a possible solution.
