GWM ORA 03 Car leasing
Affordable and cost-effective electric cars are now a priority for the UK in order to secure an effective transition to zero-emission driving. This is even more important now that the Government have confirmed the ZEV Mandate, legislating that manufacturers must produce and sell a certain percentage of zero-emission vehicles.
By 2030, this will be 80% for all manufacturers. However, it does need to be highlighted that many BEVs are priced above and beyond £40,000, which for many leasing customers (particularly personal) can be price obstructive. Yes, there are company car tax savings and Whole of Life cost benefits in utilising a battery but for some, particularly smaller businesses and retail consumers, there does need to be smaller and cheaper EVs to lease or buy.
The Great Wall Motors introduced the “Funky Cat” to the UK back in November 2022, aiming this to be one of the UK’s answers to cheaper electric transport and the group’s leading tagline “meet your future friend” seemed to do just that.
Great Wall were founded in 1984, so they are anything other than a new start, and have found immense success in the Asian region. They are a top 5 plug-in manufacturer in China, which is praise indeed with much of the best lithium-ion solutions originating from the Chinese region. And while the Funky Cat has been relatively successful across European markets, as many EVs do erode the notion of badge and image, the group did make a subtle change towards the end of 2023.
For January 2024, the cheap hatchback will now be known as the “Ora 03” as part of a new brand direction in the UK. Further models from GWM will follow this branding approach too. As the manufacturer website sets out UK customers can choose between:
Business or personal lease customers can utilise the website - to explore their contract hire, PCP or Hire Purchase options or organise a test-drive or demo with one of the allocated franchised dealers across the UK.
