2023 GWM Ora price and specs

Key Points

  • Ora EV priced from $43,990
  • Three variants, two LFP or NMC batteries
  • Up to 420km driving range, quirky Mini-esque design, standard safety assist tech

The Great Wall Motors (GWM) Ora (known as the Ora Funky Cat or Good Cat overseas) will debut in Australia from April, as one of Australia's cheapest new electric cars.

Priced from $43,990 to $53,990 before on-road costs, the Ora EV provides up to 420km of claimed WLTP driving range featuring a quirky two-tone colour design, complete active safety assist suite, and a seven-year, unlimited kilometre vehicle warranty as standard.

The flagship sportier-looking GT variant will join the line-up later on, with exact timing unconfirmed.

The affordable electric car is eligible for most Australian electric car incentives, including the fringe benefits tax (FBT) exemption for fleets and novated leases.


The Chinese-made EV is available in a Standard Range battery using the cobalt-free lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) chemistry, while the bigger Extended Range pack adopts the more energy dense nickel-manganese cobalt (NMC) type.

All models are capable of charging at up to 11kW AC, with a maximum rate of 64kW DC on the Standard Range or 67kW DC on the Extended Range.

The company claims the Standard Range can recharge from 10 to 80 per cent in 41 minutes on a compatible public EV charger.

The GWM Ora competes with the MG 4, ZS EV, BYD Dolphin, Atto 3, Nissan Leaf, Mini Electric, and Cupra Born electric cars.
