    Battery fully charged never showing the full 420Km anymore

    This will pretty much reduce your range. 70mph will reduce range, as will using ACC, as you no longer gain any benefit from regenerative braking (or going downhill). Also Eco mode works best on urban driving, when you are accelerating and decelerating. Eco+ mode will restrict you to 53mph to...

    I have found that motorway driving at 70mph reduces the range by about 10%.

    Range!!! (Again) and other Issues?

    I have the First Edition the reported range for my model is 193, but real life driving shows that is optimistic. In the summer I was getting 170-185 at a 100% charge, in colder weather it is about 155-165. I find that the predicted range is quite accurate. The 03 Pure+ has the same mechanical...

    Not recognising any charging gun is connected

    I have noted that the app with Revive chargers doesn't report correctly that the charging gun is connected. The app says to plug in the charging gun, and there isn't the animation. However the car dashboard does show it charging (green plug) and the app bizarrely shows the time to charge to...

    Problem with my ORA 03 going in to turtle mode and then stopping

    Did they do the software update? I had this issue and I required a software update to fix it. Turtle (or Tortoise) Mode is down to the electric motor overheating and the motor needs cooling. In normal operations, the coolant system does this. However according to the manual the motor would...

    GWM ORA Wessex Bristol - GWM Dealer Discussion, Opinions & Experiences

    Took my Funky Cat in for the recall. Booking was done through lease company, but I did receive a SMS reminding me. I knew they needed to replace the three pin charging cable, so I took it out from the "secret" compartment in the boot and left it in the main part of the boot. After comments in...

    Warming (preconditioning) the battery

    This is on page 94 of the manual. If the ambient temperature of the vehicle is lower than -15°C or higher than 35°C, charger temperature regulation keeps the temperature of the battery within the appropriate range. This improves vehicle performance and range. The charger warming/cooling...

    What ORA UK / GWM need to do

    I may be an outlier in this, but I actually liked the Funky Cat name. One of the reasons I got the Funky Cat, was that it looked and felt different to the more generic EVs out there. I like the round headlights for example. However I understand that I may be alone in this.

    Enjoying and frustrated by my Cat

    In my experience, I have found that ACC and SCC automatically resumes after accelerating and removing my foot from the accelerator pedal. If I brake then I need to re-engage the system by pulling the appropriate stalk forwards. I would not want it to resume automatically, just in case I have...

    GWM ORA Wessex Bristol - GWM Dealer Discussion, Opinions & Experiences

    They updated my Funky Cat with two updates in September. One was to fix the yellow turtle problem I had, the other I believe was to allow access to Gridserve (style) chargers. Friendly service, had a chat with them about Ora cars in general.

    What range is your car reporting on full charge?

    Today I am seeing 141. Earlier this week it was 147. Last week it was 157. Earlier in the month it was 175. Main differences are the external temperature, which impacts battery performance, and having the heater on, well it is cold. Motorway driving also reduces the predicted range. In...
