The electric vehicle revolution is an opportunity for new manufacturers to break the status quo by thinking a little differently. GWM ORA is trying to do exactly that by bringing its range of electric cars to the UK having established itself in China over the past few years.
GWM ORA is a sub-brand of the huge Chinese manufacturer, Great Wall Motors, which has been making SUV and pickups in Asia for decades. The ORA brand is its electric-only arm that is being launched in the UK.
The brand has focused on designing its cars around people with friendly design, intelligent technology and optimum range and efficiency – all without breaking the bank.
GWM ORA & EVs
GWM ORA will only sell electric cars with plans for a full portfolio of affordable, well-equipped, practical EVs, each with their own personality.
Because its cars are built as electric cars from the start rather than changing petrol and diesel designs to incorporate batteries, it allows developers to get creative with design both inside and out.
For now, GWM ORA offers one electric car for the UK – the unusually named Funky Cat. It’s a small EV designed for urban life with a hint of retro MINI styling, decent range and a comfy interior.
As an electric-only brand from the start, GWM ORA is similar to the beginnings of Tesla a decade ago – bosses will hope the next 10 years go that well. In terms of what it’s trying to achieve with its cars, though, it's probably closer to Fiat, MINI or Smart.

The GWM Ora Funky Cat is the car you may never have heard of, but it isn’t a name you’re likely to forget in a hurry. The first model from the all-electric Chinese brand was a surprise launch in 2022. The debut is an impressive one, with the retro-styled urban EV combining range, value, technology and cabin comfort – with all that in mind it could be the purr-fect choice for your next lease.
