Chery has confirmed that it will launch its OMODA E5 electric vehicle (EV) in Australia. The stylish and sporty SUV is set to make its debut in the Australian market by mid-year 2024, marking a significant milestone in Chery’s brand expansion and commitment to delivering sustainable vehicles to Australian consumers.

Characterised by its innovative crossover design, the OMODA E5 is powered by a single electric motor that produces 150kW and 340Nm of torque, and a 0-100km acceleration of 7.6 seconds. With an ultra-low power consumption of only 15.5kWh/100km, as well as strong range endurance of up to 430km (WLTP), the E5 enables drivers to travel freely without the need for frequent charging.

The OMODA E5 is equipped with a variety of intelligent configurations, including a 12.3-inch super large curved screen, panoramic sunroof, a digital instrument cluster, and a wealth of exterior and interior colour options, providing both style and functionality.

“We are excited to launch the OMODA E5 in Australia,” said Lucas Harris, Managing Director, Chery Australia.

“With its combination of unique design, impressive range and advanced features, we are confident the OMODA E5 will be a popular choice for Australian consumers who are increasingly seeking sustainable vehicle options.

“The arrival of the OMODA E5 later this year is the next step in our local expansion strategy and underscores Chery’s commitment to providing Australian drivers with access to advanced electric vehicle technology without compromising on performance or style.”

The OMODA E5 will be available in two trim levels: Standard and Premium. Further details regarding pricing and specification will be announced closer to the launch.

The OMODA E5 will complement Chery’s existing line-up of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, designed to meet the varying preferences and lifestyles of Australian consumers. This includes the crossover OMODA 5, the mid-sized Tiggo 7 Pro, and the seven-seater SUV, Tiggo 8 Pro Max, set to launch in April.

Chery has sold over 6000 vehicles in Australia since launching in 2023, and the brand roll-out continues with 60 dealers nationally including metro, provincial and rural locations.
