ORA Baimao

R2 to be launched with the name "Baimao" [白猫] meaning white cat. Pretty soon, we are going to see not a car lineup but either a pet shop or veritable zoo from GWM.

The way things are going, Great Wall should start printing and distributing fat tomes (books) and should offer short educational courses on the Haval and Wey range :D
Now they need to publish a bestiary.

ORA Heimao (R1)

R1 will be renamed as Heimao (黑貓) meaning "black cat".

Perhaps Great Wall Motors wants to pay tribute to former leader Deng Xiaoping who famously quoted: "Bùguǎn hēi māo bái māo, zhuō dào lǎoshǔ jiùshì hǎo māo"*, a variation on an old Sichuan folk proverb. Deng was known to appreciate 20th century painter Chen Liantao, whose nature-themed artworks often featured cats as the subject.
