The economical Ora electric vehicle (EV) brand from Great Wall has recruited Peter Vardy as its first franchised auto retail partner. Shortly after the UK market opens order books for the Ora Funky Cat hatchback in November, the AM100 auto retailer will operate its first dealership in Glasgow. Additional retail and aftersales shops, including one in Edinburgh, are scheduled to open in 2023.
Peter Vardy’s nomination, according to Great Wall, is the first of several retail announcements that will be made in the subsequent weeks. With the addition of its new brand partner, Peter Vardy expands the portfolio of franchises it already has, which includes Porsche, Jaguar, Land Rover (JLR), BMW, and Mini. Additionally recently introduced was Peter Vardy Leasing by the organization’s Mobility Division.
The different EV incentives, which are sponsored by Transport Scotland and managed by Energy Saving Trust, will also help Peter Vardy’s Ora customers.
