The Chery Omoda 5 EV is set to make its debut in the Australian market in mid-2024, bringing a unique design compared to its petrol counterpart. Positioned as a rival to the BYD Atto 3, this Chinese-made electric SUV boasts an impressive claimed range of up to 450 kilometres, based on the overseas model’s utilization of a 61kWh battery pack. The specifics of whether this quoted battery size is gross or a more realistic usable (net) figure remain unclear, adding an element of anticipation to the Omoda 5 EV’s arrival.
Notably, the Omoda 5 EV features a peak DC fast charging speed of 110kW, allowing for a rapid 30-minute charge from 0 to 80 per cent. Under the hood, a single electric motor generates 150kW and 340Nm, resulting in a claimed acceleration from 0 to 100km/h in a swift 7.6 seconds. The inclusion of a Type 2 port for AC charging and a CCS2 port for DC charging enhances the Omoda 5 EV’s charging flexibility, ensuring compatibility with our all EV Chargers and Cables.
