Already launched in the UK, the ORA Funky Cat gets five-star Euro NCAP rating.

 

With a starting price of 31.995 GBP (36.869 euros) in the UK, it gets a 48 kWh battery and a WLTP range of 310 km. Curiously in China, there’s a long range version with a 63 kWh battery.

It’s surprising that ORA decided to introduce the standard range version in Europe, instead of going for the long range first. The European version does have a more powerful 126 kW motor.

Considering that in China the ORA Good (Funky) Cat has multiple versions with LFP and NCM batteries, I don’t know what battery chemistry the European version has.

 

 

 

Anyway, the ORA Funky Cat seems to be a good and safe electric car, but definitely overpriced when compared to the MG MG4 Electric.

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. I’m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.
