Local reviews on New Zealand roads

2023 GWM Ora Standard Range review

"The Ora is an easy drive, and one with a lot of features. However, it’ll be the styling and the size that’ll make or break it for you."

Tarmac Life
Call Me Rita – GWM Ora Review

"It is rather difficult not to be entertained and impressed with the GWM Ora despite a few niggles. It’s funky and fun. GWM is on the rise in New Zealand, and the Ora is just another reason for buyers to sit up and take notice."

EVs and Beyond
Good Cat? Does Ora’s first EV live up to its name?

"If you don't need the boot space in the back seat it's a no-brainer against the BYD dolphin. The BYD dolphin I think is a little bit better built and has a little bit more space in the back; but this offers more range and more specification for less money - dollar for dollar, spec for spec."

Ora Good Cat: is it good value?

"It's a very smart little car, but it's also very comfortable, very spacious great family car. What makes it even more tempting is that it is basically the same price as a great deal of hybrid hatchbacks. But you never ever have to go to a gas station ever again if you buy this car - unless of course, you want to buy an $8 pie."
