Great Wall Motors’ (GWM) sub-brand Ora has appointed vehicle retailer Lookers to sell its Ora Funky Cat electric hatchback.

Two sites from the Lookers Group have been selected - Wolverhampton and Braintree. 

The growing network of franchise partners for the emerging Chinese car brand comes ahead of official order books opening later this year. 

Mark Raban, Chief Executive Officer at Lookers, said: “As the UK’s leading future-focused motor retail group, with a proud heritage stretching back over 100 years, Lookers is committed to being UK consumers’ number one choice for all-electric driving. 

“Proud to be welcoming the new ORA Funky Cat First Edition to not one, but two, prominent Lookers sites in our nationwide network, this transformative car brings a fresh new look to the EV market and we are thrilled to be among the first in the UK to showcase its arrival.”

Priced from £31,995 for the entry level model, the all electric hatchback is claimed to deliver a range of 193 miles from its 48kWh battery. 

Standard features include facial and voice recognition, 360-degree cameras and adaptive cruise control. 

The Ora Funky Cat also comes with integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as wireless phone charging and electric front seats. 

It comes in a choice of four colours: Nebula and Aurora Green, Mars Red and Starry Black. 

Duncan McPhee, Chief Operating Officer at Lookers, added: “A real gamechanger for the UK’s EV marketplace, the ORA Funky Cat comes with an exceptional range, outstanding driver-focused features and a price point which many buyers will see as attractive. 

“We’re excited to have such a strong new EV offering for our customers, which will be proudly showcased at our Lookers dealerships in Wolverhampton and Braintree. 

“With a strong record of partnership success with established and emerging EV brands, the arrival of the ORA Funky Cat is a welcome and compelling addition to our growing portfolio.”
