GWM ORA 07 Officially Debuts in Malaysia – Priced From RM169,800

After previewing the ORA 07 last month, GWM Malaysia has officially launched its first sedan model for the Malaysian market.

The ORA 07 is available in two variants:

GWM ORA 07 Long Range Ultra – RM169,800
The entry level 07 is powered by a single motor that drives the front wheels and outputs 204PS and 340Nm of torque. GWM says this variant is able to travel 640km on a single charge, but that is on the NEDC cycle. For the more accurate WLTP cycle, this variant is able to travel about 512km before it runs out of juice.

The Long Range Ultra accelerates to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds and maxes out at 170km/h.

As for the interior, this variant gets two colour choices – black or brown, the latter being a RM2,500 option.

With a focus on range rather than performance, this variant rolls on 18-inch wheels.

The Long Range Ultra also gets five driving modes – Normal, Sport, Well-Being, Individual and Eco.

GWM ORA 07 Performance – RM189,800
Unlike the Long Range Ultra, the Performance variant benefits from dual motors, one for each axle. It offers 408PS and 680Nm of torque. But because it focuses on performance rather than on all out range, the Performance model can travel 550km (NEDC) or 440km on the WLTP cycle.

The Performance variant sees of the sprint to 100km/h in just 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 180km/h.

The interior of the Performance model can only be had in brown.

The Performance variant gets six driving modes – Normal, Sport, Well-Being, Individual, Eco and Sport Plus.

This top of the line variant rolls on 19 inch wheels.

Both variants come with a massive panoramic roof, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch infotainment screen and a Infinity sound system with 11 speakers. There is also a wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heads up display and a special USB port designed for dash cams.

As for charging, both cars are powered by the same 83.499kWh Ternary Lithium Battery that can be charged via a 11kW Type 2 AC charging port or a 88kW CCS2 DC charging port. Both cars will take 32 minutes to recharge from 30-80% with a DC charger, or 15 hours to recharge from 0-100% with a AC charger.

On the safety front, both cars benefit from a full range of ADAS features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Intelligent Cruise Assistance, Traffic Jam Assist, Front Collision Warning, Auto Emergency Braking, Auto Emergency Braking – Pedestrians, Auto Emergency Braking – Bicycle, Parking Distance Control, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Emergency Lane Keeping Assist, Intelligent Evade, Lane Change Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Overspeed Alert, Intelligent Speed Alerting, Secondary Collision Mitigation, Emergency Signal Braking, Door Opening Warning, Rear Collision Warning, AEB Junction Assist, Emergency Braking at Low Speed, Front Radar Auto Turn On at Low Speed, Blind Spot Detection System, Electronic Stability Program and finally Integrated Intelligent Parking (phew).

And just in case you were wondering, the 07 is 4871mm long, 1862mm wide, 1500mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2870mm. Boot space on the other hand measures in at 333 litres.

The ORA 07 is covered by a six year or 150,000km vehicle warranty and eight year or 180,000km warranty for the battery, electric motor and the electric motor control unit. On top of that, the 07 is also covered by a 12 year car rust and corrosion warranty.

GWM Malaysia is also offering a ‘one-to-one’ battery replacement if the state of charge falls below 70%.

However, to further sweeten the deal, GWM Malaysia is also including a complimentary home Wallbox charger and an additional two-year vehicle warranty that takes it up to eight years or 180,000km on top of the warranty mentioned above. But this is only for the first 500 customers.

If you are a current GWM owner, GWM Malaysia will give you an exclusive RM3,000 Loyalty Offer if you purchase an ORA 07.

The ORA 07 is now available in Malaysia in three colours – Grey, Purple and White.
