The GWM Ora 03 is an affordable and quirky EV that’s a welcome addition to the lower budget segment of the EV market. It has a generous offering of tech, including 360 degree parking sensors and a fully digital instrument display, putting the Funky Cat in line with most other EVs available, but at a lower price point.


For a compact car, there’s plenty of space on the inside, both for the driver and passengers. Leatherette seats combined with air conditioning make for a comfortable environment. A fully digital display, as well as electric driver and passenger seats, bring the GWM Ora 03 in line with many of the more expensive EVs on the market.

What is your estimated range based on?

We take real world range from EV database, which combines the predicted range of an EV in cold weather with the predicted range of an EV driving in warm weather.

For cold weather, this assumes it’s -10 degrees celsius with heating on. For warmer weather, it’s based on 23 degrees celsius and there’s no A/C on.

Predicting exact range is tricky, and range will depend on speed, style of driving, weather conditions and route conditions.

What affects EV range?

Many things can impact the range you get in your EV, there are outside factors and ones you can control or mitigate. Temperature (both of the car and outside environment), your driving style, weather, the surfaces you drive on and the spec of your car can all make a difference to your actual range.
