GWM Ora 07 previewed: Two variants, Long Range - 640km range (NEDC standard) and Performance - 550km

KUALA LUMPUR: Great Wall Motor's Ora 07 all-electric coupe is the Chinese automaker's vanguard for its ambitious 2024 lineup in Malaysia, heralding the upcoming releases of the GWM Haval H6 hybrid in the second quarter of 2024 and the GWM Tank 300 in the third quarter of 2024.

The Ora 07 which competes against the likes of the Tesla Model 3 and BYD Seal, was shown recently at a media preview at The Raw Studio, Kota Damansara.

In Thailand, it was launched late last year in two variants, namely Long Range (priced at 1.3 million baht or RM171,573) and Performance (priced at 1.5 million baht or RM197,989).

"The Ora 07's design is a harmonious blend of retro and modern, boasting a closed grille and oval-shaped headlights that invoke a sense of nostalgia. It is a visual and technological marvel that epitomises the future of electric driving," said Mencius Meng, GWM's brand director.

The Ora 07's silhouette, reminiscent of a fastback automobile, features hidden door handles, frameless doors, and an adaptive electric spoiler.

Measuring 4,871mm in length and 1,862mm in width, and 1,500mm in height, the vehicle presents an imposing stance.

The Ora 07 has a cockpit adorned with premium leather, a T-shaped hollow center console with rotating panels, and ergonomic seats with massage features (driver and front passenger).

The sporty tri-dashboard complements the multi-functional steering wheel.

Its premium interior which has a minimalistic design, is completed by a dome-style panoramic sunroof and a smart air conditioning system that delivers a three-dimensional flow, ensuring comfort.
