Chery to speed up EV Omoda 5 launch – New Straits Times

Chery Automobile Co. Ltd., a Chinese automobile manufacturer, is accelerating the launch of its electric vehicle (EV) — the Omoda 5 — with the aim of establishing a presence in the burgeoning EV market.

The launch of the Omoda 5 is a key element of the company’s plan to solidify its position as a major player in the global EV market, a segment that is projected to be valued at US$639 billion by 2026.

The Omoda 5 is a four-door sedan equipped with a cutting-edge lithium-ion battery pack and a single-motor drivetrain capable of delivering a maximum range of up to 500 kilometres on a single charge. It is a fully-electric vehicle, with no internal combustion engine, and has been designed to meet the stringent safety and performance standards of the Chinese government.

The Omoda 5 will be powered by an electric motor that produces up to 172 horsepower and can reach a top speed of 150 kilometres per hour. It also features a suite of advanced driver-assistance features, such as lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.

Chery has made a significant investment in the development of the Omoda 5, with the goal of achieving mass-market appeal. It has partnered with a number of leading technology firms, including Bosch and Qualcomm, to develop the vehicle’s powertrain and infotainment systems.

The company is also investing in marketing and advertising efforts to ensure the Omoda 5’s successful launch. It has already secured a number of partnerships with major media outlets to promote the vehicle, and is planning to launch a series of promotional events in key cities across China.

Chery is confident that the Omoda 5 will be a hit with consumers, and is aiming to have the vehicle on the market by the end of the year. The company’s efforts to accelerate the launch of the Omoda 5 underscore its commitment to becoming a leading player in the global EV market.
