The GMW 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.
The Funky Cat stands out on the road from the outset with its retro, quirky styling that takes inspiration from old-school Minis, the Fiat 500 and even a hint of Porsche. It’s a little bigger than those dinky hatchbacks and more on par with a Volkswagen ID.3 or MG4. There are five doors, a 228-litre boot (enough for a couple of suitcases) and a spacious interior that, thanks to the flat floor, has more than enough headroom in the rear. The technology is led by a slick twin-screen layout with soft materials giving the whole cabin an upmarket feel.
Performance and range
The Funky Cat is no slouch on the road, with a 48kWh battery enough for just under 200 miles, perfect for short trips around the city or the daily office commute. An extended range version offering more than 250 miles is expected in 2023 which will add to its appeal for families looking to get out of town at the weekends.
GMW Ora Funky Cat First Edition
The styling of the GMW Ora Funky Cat makes it stand out against most rivals although we’d recommend taking a look at the MINI Electric or Honda e for stylish, affordable, urban motoring. The MG4 and Volkswagen ID.3 are also worth competitors, offering all-round capability and a little extra practicality and range.
